The re-election of President Obama and the Supreme Court’s validation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) mean we are destined to live with “Obama-care.” Where does this leave us as orthopaedic surgeons? What does it mean for our future, the practice of orthopaedic surgery, and the care of our patients?
Many believe that further intrusion of government into our healthcare system bodes ill for the future. The record speaks otherwise.
