SmartMoney Interview and “Best of Web” Recognition for BoneSmart®

Elevating the image of the joint replacment industry and raising awareness among prospective joint replacement patients about their options for treatment are two of the primary goals of this Foundation. So we are pleased to share this recent recognition by two notable publications – the Wall Street Journal’s SmartMoney and HealthLine.com – that underscore the work we do every day, to benefit both consumers and the image of this industry.

Wall Street Journal’s SmartMoney Interviews FARM Founder

HealthLine Names BoneSmart.org “Best of the Web”

Earlier this month FARM’s patient outreach website, BoneSmart.org, received yet another bit of recognition – this time from one of the web’s largest medical publishers (HealthLine.com) – which named the site one of the Top 11 Best Total Knee Replacement Blogs. We are grateful for the recognition, and proud to say BoneSmart® has experienced seven straight years of growth. Millions of visitors each year help nurture the web’s most active joint replacement patient forum (with a current archive of more than 300,000 patient “posts”). See the award >
