An article I co-wrote in 1997 with Dr. James Heckman on the economics of using a novel technology to stimulate bone healing was quoted in a research paper published in the journal NatureEfficacy of Electrical Stimulators for Bone Healing: A Meta-Analysis of Randomized Sham-Controlled Trials. The section quotes, “The socioeconomic burden associated with bone healing complications such as delayed union or nonunion is substantial and includes direct treatment costs as well as personal and societal costs, such as lost wages, decreased productivity and delays returning to work.”
