Hey all

I am a soon to be graduated orthopedic surgery resident. I have been looking for a way to create a comprehensive database of cases that I perform throughout my career. Im looking for something that I can use to track specifics about a surgery and be able to retrieve them in the future to review similarities with other cases.


More specifically- I am going to be a hip and knee replacement surgeon.

I want to be able to log cases with metadata or tags and photos and specifics of each patient.

Then in the future when I have a similar case I can look it up by the implant I used or the specifics of that case.

Lets say I want to pull all of my hip replacements revision surgeries that were done for recurrent instability.  I could search for and pull all the cases that have that tag and then read the details about that case, look at X-rays I attached, etc...


Does FileMaker do this?
How hard would it be for me to create?



Any tips from the pros?

Im playing with the trial and want some insight before dropping the money for the real deal
