Orthogate Resources


This guide has been developed by the members of the Internet Society of Orthopedic Surgery and Trauma (ISOST) to serve as a self-guided tutorial to the Internet for orthopedists. Although there are many other guides available, we felt that a guide written by orthopedic surgeons specifically directed to the interests of fellow orthopedists would more directly address your needs than a general interest guide. This guide is an ongoing project and will be continually updated, in the way that only an Internet document can be. It will be highly hyperlinked, with orthopaedic-specific examples.

It is designed to allow you to choose the level of expertise and subject area that interest you at the time. We have tried to make your journey easier and more productive by teaching you about the tools you'll be using. We also want to give you some ideas about where you'll want to go on the Orthopaedic Internet. And when you're ready to start contributing to the orthopaedic knowledgebase on the Internet, we'll show you how you can get involved in our organization. For those of us in the global orthopaedic community the Internet is about a huge global conversation.
