The end of summer brings a wide range of activities to most of our lives — last minute vacations, getting kids ready for school, preparing vehicles and homes for the colder days of winter, and on and on ... . And, much like the season in which we find ourselves, this issue of MD News brings wide-ranging articles aimed at enlightening and preparing you for the months ahead. Dr. Gordon Bennett, orthopedic foot and ankle surgeon and Director of Outpatient Surgery at Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center, discusses total ankle replacement (TAR) as an option for patients suffering with ankle arthritis. He reports that TAR helps to relieve pain and allows patients to return to activities of daily living. Underst a nd i n g t he i mpor t a nce of check i n g t he Medicare exclusionar y status of employees and con- tractors is a topic highlighted in an article on medica l practice compliance programs. Written by Chris Huryn, Partner with Brouse McDowell, this article provides a great overview on the resulting issues that arise when a medica l practice inadvertently overlooks this. Ohio's Medical Marijuana Law, now a reality, inches closer to implementation ever y day. Joe Feltes with Buckingham, Doolittle & Burroughs fills us in on the progress to date, and how Ohio's wildly unpredictable weather has wreaked havoc on deadlines. And, though a continuing headline-grabbing topic, data breaches are a subject no healthcare entity or professional can shy away from. Allison Cole with Krugliak, Wilkins, Griffiths & Dougherty Co., LPA, delivers convincing evidence on the importance of planning ahead for these catastrophes. We hope you'll find these and all of the stories and articles in this issue of MD News interesting and thought provoking. As always, thanks for reading!
