A Note From the Editors
Vol 32 no 2 – MARCH 2019: The ANKLE
Happy March to all of our NOD members!
We hope you enjoyed the first edition of the Orthopedic Division Clinical Update (ODCU) in January. In our previous issue, we indicated that we would be releasing content monthly. We recently created a more structured and rigorous editing process for each issue. This new process requires a little bit more production time and as a result, we will be releasing the ODCU bimonthly.
