M A Y 2 0 2 0 • O U T PA T I E N T S U R G E R Y. N E T • 4 9 L ike some of you, I had planned to canvas the booths in the exhibit hall at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons Annual Meeting in Orlando in March. Even though the meeting was canceled, I looked into many of the innovative prod- ucts that were scheduled to be on display. Here are several that caught my attention and have the potential to be promising additions to cutting-edge orthopedic ORs. OSM Arthrex NanoScope Continual refinement in the manufacturing of arthroscopic cam- eras and image display technology drives the value of Nanoscope. A shockingly small cam- era means better access to difficult locations in complex joint spaces and better image capture technology means better three- dimensional rendering of actual pathophysiology, both of which yield better clinical decision-making and less morbidity to patients. As good as pre-op MRI images are, all surgeons have at some point been surprised by what they actually found in joint spaces during arthroscopy procedures. The company touts the system's portability, Innovations in Orthopedics Hot takes on products that would have been exhibited at this year's AAOS Annual Meeting. John Crawford, MD | Knoxville, Tenn. Dr. Crawford (john.crawford@orthotennessee.com) is an orthopedic surgeon specializing in pediatric and adolescent conditions at OrthoTennessee in Knoxville, Tenn.
