At AOSSM on Friday, I’ll be joining The Sports Doc Podcast to discuss challenging cartilage injuries with Seth Sherman, MD.
This appears to be a PhD student’s research thesis on adolescent patellofemoral pain. I strongly dislike this term in that it is really just a fancy word for anterior knee pain.
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.
I recently participated in a study to perform a retrieval analysis with clinical correlation to look at high rates of infection after conversion of patellofemoral arthroplasty (PFA) to total knee arthroplasty (TKA) seen in an earlier study.
The 40 year plus search for the best way to reconstruct the ACL continues as new studies show that quadriceps grafts are no better than the alternatives. I was just down in New Orleans at the Arthroscopy Association of North America and I listened to the paper. Using the Kaiser Medical database, which has a […]
Sreetha Sidharthan M.D. and I recently published this commentary about how posterior tibial tubercle relative to the trochlear groove is associated with increased risk of patellofemoral arthritis.
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.
This article about an assistant soccer coach at Acton-Boxborough High School in Massachusetts caught my attention because this is where I grew up.
