Geriatric Orthopaedic Surgery & Rehabilitation is a new bimonthly journal to be introduced in September by SAGE, Thousand Oaks, Calif, an independent academic and professional publisher with principal offices worldwide.
The publication will address a broad range of musculoskeletal disorders in the aging patient through peer-reviewed research reports and reviews, technical perspectives, case studies, and other evidence-based articles.
“The fastest growing portion of our population is the segment over 65 years old. Most older individuals will experience an orthopedic problem as they age,” said Stephen Kates, MD, the journal’s founding editor, in a statement.
Contributors and readers will include orthopaedic surgeons, geriatricians, physiatrists, anesthesiologists, and other physicians specializing in care of the older adult.
“The projected incidence of musculoskeletal problems among the aging Baby Boomer population is staggering,” said Ron Epstein, SAGE director of STM Journals. “
