Publisher’s memo: The first of many

When I decided to create LER, I spoke with many of you to determine if there was a need for a multi-disciplinary magazine exclusively focused on the lower extremity. The response was overwhelming and very positive. You wanted a practical, easy-to-read publication that delivered the clinical literature reviews but without all the dry and boring details of the methods, a publication that encouraged collaboration and helped to improve outcomes for your patients.
