A study by Henry Ford Health System published in the October issue of The American Journal of Sports Medicine provides a promising answer to the question “Can patients effectively manage their pain after ACL knee reconstruction surgery without opioids?”
Dr. Nathanael Heckmann and Dr. Craig Della Valle answer ICJR’s questions about their study that investigated whether the amount of time between the index total hip arthroplasty and a revision procedure for instability is associated with an increased risk of complications.
Although still representing a small percentage of total knee arthroplasty (TKA) procedures performed in the US, nationwide use of a robotic system for TKA grew more than 2000% between 2010 and 2018, according to recent study from Hospital for Special Surgery.
Dr. Paul Cagle and Dr. Brad Parsons answer ICJR’s questions about their study evaluating long-term survivorship in patients with glenohumeral osteoarthritis who were younger than age 60 at the time of total shoulder arthroplasty.
Shoulder blade pain doesn't always have an obvious cause. It can be a symptom of something serious like a heart attack or lung cancer. Or maybe you slept on it wrong or have poor posture at the computer.
