As an orthopedist, your time is precious. You’re already busy seeing patients, doing surgeries, and keeping up with charting. But you also want to stay current with the latest research and medical innovation. Curated email newsletters for orthopedists are a great way to get the headlines in your inbox where you’ll see them.
What are the top email newsletters for orthopedists?
A good email newsletter can save you time by synthesizing the most important news, research, upcoming conferences, and editorials in one place. Here are three of the top email newsletters for busy orthopedists.
OrthoBuzz is a blog from the publishers of The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery, one of the most trusted names in orthopedics. The blog covers developments in orthopedics that affect your day-to-day practice.
In addition to the blog, OrthoBuzz publishes a monthly email newsletter that includes the following:
- A summary of an essential recent publication written by the JBJS Editor-in-Chief
- Practice trends and tips presented in helpful tidbits about what’s happening in the field
- Need to know updates about science and medicine that are relevant to orthopedists

You probably already know about OrthoGate, the online community for orthopedic professionals. The OrthoGate website is dedicated to improving information access for orthopedists, and it hosts lively forums, educational resources, videos, and of course, the latest news about orthopedic surgery.
Create a free account and subscribe to the Orthopod email listserv to join the discussion. Orthopod is a listserv rather than a newsletter, meaning it’s not moderated. But it is a great way to keep up with the latest orthopedics topics, meetings, conferences, and publications.
3. Orthopedics This Week
Orthopedics This Week is the most widely read publication for practicing orthopedists. Robin R. Young (“RRY”) founded the publication, which describes itself as the “community paper” for the “small town” of 250,000 clinicians, nurses, administrators, scientists, and other professionals involved in orthopedics.
Orthopedics This Week arrives as an email newsletter about three times a month, bringing you the latest news, analysis, and commentary. Unlike the other free newsletters on this list, this is a paid subscription. However, you can start with a 90-day free trial and see if it’s worth continuing.
