Extract

In the past ten years, I have become increasingly concerned as to where the practice of orthopaedics is headed. While at the Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons in 2009, I had a long discussion with several of my peers from around the country about many of the problems we, as orthopaedic surgeons, are facing. The discussion included our thoughts regarding the use of technology in our profession. Although we all agreed that technology has benefited us in some ways, we also agreed that it has not necessarily made us better physicians. One of my peers stated, "I think I am a worse doctor now than I was twenty years ago." Increasing dependence on technology, although attractive, might be making us lose our ability to reason and, hence, be good physicians.
