The September issue of Arthroplasty Today highlights the new “Viewpoint” editorial category with the article, “Total joint arthroplasty in the public hospitals of Port-au-Prince, Haiti: our experience,” by Jessica Hooper, MD, Ronald H. Israelski, MD, Ran Schwarzkopf, MD, MSc. They detail their medical mission to Haiti in 2018 and report on how to “better serve the needs of orthopaedic patients, rather than take cases away from the local surgeons.”
