Valerie Bridges was born with a deformative condition called knock knees, causing her to be prone to patellar dislocation. Surgeries put her back in the game!
A relatively rare operation as far as knee surgery goes is a distalizing tibial tubercle osteotomy. I do this surgery for patients who have patella alta or high knee caps.
Assessment of Patellar Vascularity after Patellar Cartilage Restoration via Lateral Parapatellar Approach
I recently published an article about assessing patellar vascularity after patellar cartilage restoration via a lateral parapatellar approach, doing analysis using dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging.
recently joined Dan Braun on the Brawn Body Health and Fitness podcast. We talked about patellar tracking abnormalities and patellar instability. So first of all, the patella is the kneecap – and a lot of people start having patellar pain when they’re teenagers.
Learn about the techniques that hopefully prevent a retear of the ACL after surgery and the rehabilitation process after undergoing an ACL reconstruction.
For the climbers out there, I found an article in climbing.com. As an orthopaedic surgeon in New York City, I don’t see a lot of climbing injuries. That said, I have seen some pretty bad ligament injuries over the years, including several ACL injuries sustained from a fall, typically when bouldering or falling on a climbing wall. The advice in this article is […]
This article discussed outcomes of patellofemoral arthroplasty, which is one type of partial knee replacement. When I first started doing surgery it was rare.
Anteromedialization Tibial Tubercle Osteotomy Improves Patellar Contact Forces: A Cadaveric Model of Patellofemoral Dysplasia
In this study I created a 3D printed model to assess how forces can be improved across the front of the knee with anteromedialization tibial tubercle osteotomy.
