Think Like an Innovator: Tips from a Surgeon Entrepreneur
Selene G. Parekh, M.D., partner at the North Carolina Orthopaedic Clinic and Associate Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at Duke University, saw the value in educating fellow surgeons, residents and medical students on the business aspects of medicine to improve healthcare.
Dr. Parekh took a year off from medical school to earn his MBA, during which time he learned to expand his approach and seek innovative solutions. He completed a Healthcare Entrepreneurship Fellowship, learning how ideas progressed from concepts to marketing and product launches.
During his residency, Dr. Parekh saw that his co-residents, as well as physicians and medical students, did not understand the language of business. This led him to develop the “Business of Orthopaedics” conference, which addressed practice management, product development and entrepreneurship, as well as personal financial management, leadership and negotiations.

Dr. Parekh comments on Johnson's achilles injury
Derrick Johnson’s injury is brutal for the Chiefs but appalling for him
BY SAM MELLINGER | THE KANSAS CITY STAR September 7, 2014
excerpt from article
Other than a head or neck injury, a torn Achilles’ tendon might be the worst injury that can happen on a football field. The Achilles is the longest and strongest tendon in the human body, requiring up to 11 months of rehab. Full recoveries are nearly impossible. At least with an ACL tear, athletes typically return to full strength.
Research from Duke University indicates that more than one-third of NFL players who suffer ruptured Achilles’ never play again. All of the players who returned saw “significant decreases” in games played and production. That study was published four years ago, but the grim outlook remains.
“That’s absolutely still the case,” says Selene Parekh, an associate professor for orthopedic surgery and a co-author of the study. “Once you tear (the Achilles’), you’re just not the same.”

That's Awkward: Smelly Post-Workout Feet
by Emily Abbate
Q: "I feel like my feet smell more than anyone else's after I work out. Why is that? Is there anything I can do to get rid of the stench?" -- Anonymous
A: "Smelly feet can happen for a number of reasons and really depends on the bacteria living on your skin of your foot," says Orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Selene G. Parekh, Associate Professor of Surgery in the Division of Orthopaedic Surgery at the North Carolina Orthopaedic Clinic and Duke Orthopaedics. "If the scent has changed dramatically over the course of a few weeks or months there may be a fungal infection such as athlete's foot, [which] can easily be treated with over-the-counter medications."
