Andrew Straszewski, MD Resident Physician Orthopaedics
Kenneth Wilson, MD, FACS Associate Professor of Surgery
In another trauma case with UChicago Medicine, Drs. Kent, Jeffries, Straszewski, and Wilson evaluate and treat a patient with a gunshot wound and femoral fracture. An ABI was obtained, CT angiography was evaluated, and proximal tibial traction was performed for pain management.
This is the first case in our new trauma section with several surgeons over at UChicago Medicine. The patient in this case is a 51-year-old male who was involved in a motor vehicle collision. Chest X-ray and subsequent CT scan showed an expanding pneumothorax. Here, Dr. Bishop and Dr. Bendix perform a left tube thoracostomy.

On occasion, we get an inquiry along the lines of “Why are JOMI’s video-articles so long? Why don’t you make shorter videos? That would be so helpful!”
Short videos are tremendously helpful. Eventually, we may begin offering shorter content alongside the long-form articles. However, the goal of JOMI is not to do quick reviews, but to offer long-form virtual shadowing experiences. JOMI is a unique resource offering a deeper educational experience.
