BoneSmart

August 15, 2019

Overview

 

BoneSmart is a nonprofit that operates under the slogan of “Joint Replacement Advocacy and Online Community”. This means this is your organization to go to for campaigns and reaching out to others who have had joint replacement surgery. The website offers articles and community forums on the hip and knee, as well as pain management, wound care, and forums for other joints.

 

Resources

 

The main resource a visitor can acquire from BoneSmart’s website are the community forums. In addition, the organization provides assistance for:

 

Patient Forum

 

The patient forum is a vital component to BoneSmart’s approach of offering an online community. The site is separated by knee and hip forums. There is also a specific ‘Patient Forums’ link with these joints, an other joints forum, and a forum library.

 

Plan Against Pain

 

Under the ‘Pain Management’ tab, there is a ‘Plan Against Pain’ subtab. When you visit this page you are prompted to begin the conversation by speaking with your doctor about a post-operation plan. The “plan” also offers ‘Pain Q&A’ and “Reliable Resources’ specifically applied to post-surgery.
