How Physical Therapy is a Big Part of Knee Care

How Physical Therapy is a Big Part of Knee Care

by Shearly (SU)
Knee injuries and disorders are actually quite common. In fact, an estimated 10.4 million patients are seen by doctors every year for knee-related injuries and disorders. Common knee injuries and conditions include osteoarthritis (also called wear and tear arthritis), dislocations, strains, fractures, ACL tears, and meniscal tears. Some require surgery to repair, others are non-surgical. In either case, comprehensive treatment often includes physical therapy to help strengthen and heal the knee.

Preparing for a Hip Arthroscopy

Preparing for a Hip Arthroscopy

by Yenny (SU)
If your doctor is sending you or someone you know in for hip arthroscopy, you may be wondering what it is, and how to prepare for it. Hip arthroscopy is a minimally invasive hip surgery that allows doctors to view of the acetabulofemoral (hip) joint through a device called an arthroscope, a flexible tube with a small camera on the end. Arthroscopic procedures are often used to help diagnose and treat several joint disorders. Because it is a minimally invasive procedure, it has shorter recovery times compared to conventional open surgery techniques.

How Being a Former College Athlete Helps Me Be a Better Sports Medicine Physician

How Being a Former College Athlete Helps Me Be a Better Sports Medicine Physician

by Orthoknox
As a sports medicine physician, I’ve been on both sides of the issue. I have been the athlete who has an injury and wants to get back to doing what I love as quickly as possible. And now as a physician, I want to get people back to their way of life as safely and quickly as I can. I’ve been there. I’ve been the patient in the doctor’s office. I understand the things that are going through the patient’s mind. That was a major reason why I chose to pursue additional fellowship training in orthopedic sports medicine. I wanted to try to balance getting a patient back to their activities and former way of life while making sure their bodies have had a chance to completely heal from the original injury.

Benefits of Robotic Knee Surgery

by Yenny (SU)
Even a few decades ago, the idea of robotic surgery seemed like something out of science fiction. Now it is an everyday reality that can reduce the risk of complications such as excessive bleeding, speed healing, and reduce overall downtime following a medical procedure. There are many benefits to electing for robotic knee surgery, especially when compared to traditional open surgery.

Does Your Meniscal Tear Require Knee Surgery?

Does Your Meniscal Tear Require Knee Surgery?

by Shearly (SU)
Your knee is composed of three bones that meet to form the joint. The meniscus is a rubbery pad, shaped like the letter “C” that cushions and stabilizes your knee. Each knee has two (known as menisci), with one menisucus located on the medial side of your knee, and the other on the outer. These wedge shaped pads are biological shock absorbers, cushioning and balancing your knee from all the pressure and weight put on it. In most cases, a meniscal tear requires knee surgery to correct, depending on the severity, and specific pattern of damage. Over half a million meniscal repair surgeries are performed each year.
