"Alignment 2.0 understands the nuances of running an orthopaedic practice. Each of the sections highlights the challenges and opportunities facing orthopaedic practices and offers thoughtful and instructive advice. The timeliness of the content and insights covering social media as well as the impact of alternative payment models on an orthopaedic practice were insightful. I think there is something in this book for every orthopaedic practice and would encourage all orthopaedic surgeons and practice administrators to read it, certainly prior to considering any larger changes to their practice structure or approach to marketing."
