Not knowing is an apology, but not a justification, since you can learn.

Eliphas Lévi

We are already in the second half of 2020, a difficult and uncertain year; however, the professions related to the Health System have been more active and urged to provide reliable information, that meets the need to resolve the effects of the pandemic with greater likelihood of success.

Never as today people read; magazines, emails, conferences, all media fill the information spaces on research groups, which recount the progress made in the long processes of discovering effective formulas and strategies. Thus, those who read, are kept up-to-date and able to analyze with greater elements of judgment the variety of statements exposed in the different sources.

Those of us involved in the branch of Orthopedics are no exception; like the other specialties of medicine we must meet the demands imposed by the quality which we want to give to our work, that strongly demands updating and that goes beyond reading the content of specialized journals, attending congresses, online events and instructional courses; it opens up a space to document professional work, supported by the experience achieved in the exercise of the profession, which, being confronted against the results drawn from the research work carried out by those dedicated to finding better options, allows to act more efficiently, even more, gives the professional orthopedist authority to discuss on solid foundations the best strategies in the resolution of clinical cases specific to the specialty.

«Whoever adds nothing to their knowledge diminishes it», affirms the Talmud, the body of Civil and Religious Law of Judaism, and so it is, today as professionals we must make reading a habit, not only to nurture and move forward, but to compare the experiences, reflect and be able to share the conclusions, to contribute in this way, to the growth of Orthopedics in our country.

Again, in Acta Ortopédica Mexicana, we invite you to participate with your comments, your suggestions and research work; such contributions will give greater relevance to this publication, which aims to become the best tool of specialized information, put at the service of those who want to give their professional performance a higher level of quality.
