Clinical Updates: Helping you to keep informed.

August 30th, 2009
Over the past year, most of my blogs have not addressed clinical topics. Many of the responses to my more spiritually and philosophically based entries make it clear that I shouldcontinue with these types of blogs.

However, I have come to realize that there is an ever increasing role for "Clinical Updates" regarding what's new from the fingertip to the shoulder. The internet is replete with content regarding diagnoses and treatment recommendations, but all to often fails to provide easy to understand information.

So, in the future, I will start providing "Clinical Updates," and when possible, I will also include references from the literature. The "evidence-base" from which we practice and advise is increasingly critical. we need to understand whether a treatment is indeed supported by data, based on experience alone, or both. We need to appreciate the upsides as well as the potential downsides.

As with other blog entries, I an hopeful that these will educate and provoke. Through this website, I am always available to answer questions, in general--obviously unable to give specific advice or make assessments.

I am notified when there is a blog reply, so if you do have a question or require a response from me, either reply to the blog, or email me through the "Contact Dr Tomaino" section on this site. Your unique queries will likely be addressed in subsequent blogs!



I love this idea.
It is very easy to find information on the internet for any topic, but it is hard to know what to trust. Usually when we find something on the net linked to a journal article we can’t go past the Abstract without being a member.
Your website is already so full of information it will be nice to see the updates and current research. Patients (current and potential) can take comfort in knowing the info is being posted from a reliable source!
How about something pertaining to Radial Tunnel?!!

i love this idea also!!!! Ever since my shoulder surgery I have been
increasingly interested in the "latest" information on shoulder problems,
treatments,rehab,etcWith vall that is available on the interent, i agree it''s
difficult to pick and choose what is reliable and informative, Your
clinical updates for
patients would be the best!!! I'll read them

Your website already contains SO MUCH info for patients to sort through...everything from office information, to upper extrem. disorders..treatment plans and even videos...I wonder how much more interaction you could get if you were able to add a newsgroup type of section? You could have groups based on diagnosis and let patients talk ti each other about what they are going through and how they are handling it.
