Ortho Slowdown?

As the economy slows down ( I still don't know why we aren't calling it a recession yet) and Boomers see their retirement funds shrink it is not surprising that orthopaedics may slow down as a result. Knee, hips and shoulder replacements are often elective procedures, which will be delayed. Although that may increase business for chronic pain specialists, but I digress.

CNN has a story on the topic. It does make me wonder if it will hasten the move to DTC and online for the ortho companies.
