He has authored over 30 peer-review publications, co-authors a monthly column in Orthopedics Today magazine about emerging technologies, founded and edits www.TopOrthoApps.com, and co-founded and edits the Journal of Mobile Technology in Medicine.

www.TopOrthoApps.com is dedicated to reviewing mobile apps that are useful to orthopaedic providers, trainees, and students. We recognize that medical providers do not have the time nor the money to test every app available, so we provide concise reviews for the apps you might find most helpful.

This site was founded by Orrin I. Franko, MD, a resident member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. Orrin has published scientific manuscripts on the topic of smartphone app use among orthopaedic surgeons, and he is the Lead App Editor for the Journal of Mobile Technology in Medicine.  The motivation for this site was to help busy surgeons identify apps that are most useful in the clinical, academic, and educational environments.
