The launch coincides with the opening day of Global Insights: The Future of Hip and Knee Surgery, Smith & Nephew's medical education event in Copenhagen, Denmark, attended by more than 450 orthopaedic surgeons from 33 different countries.

It includes links to the first two in a series of surgical technique guides, which are available through the iBooks StoreSM for use on the Mac® and iPad® platforms. And the site also hosts a new iPad and Android(TM) app on ligament balancing, which features 22 videos and more than 60 screens of content.  

"I find this level of commitment and creativity among our industry partners to be invaluable," says Prof Carsten Perka, MD, of Berlin, Germany, who is a chairperson at this week's Global Insights conference. "Smith & Nephew sets the new standard today. Learning from my peers and sharing knowledge across these platforms will help me bring new ideas, new ways of working and treating patients, into my clinical practice.
