Can Knee Injections Cure Knee Arthritis?

Knee arthritis and cartilage wear has traditionally been considered an uncurable condition. In fact, the only consistently successful treatment whas a total knee replacement. Although knee replacements are a good option for severe arthritis, they require a large surgery, a prolonged recorvery course, and are usually associated with temporary, but significant, postoperative pain. Fortunately, advances in medical knowledge and technology have produced some very promising non-surgical treatments for knee arthritis. While there may not be a cure for arthritis yet, many of these treatments have shown potential to delay the need for knee replacement surgery.

After Hours Sports Injury Clinic on Friday and Saturday

The Bone & Joint Clinic and Lake After Hours have teamed up to hold an after hours sports clinic on Friday nights and Saturday morning during football season. There are two locations open until 11 p.m. on Friday nights with sports medicine doctors on call, and Dr. Mazoch and Dr. Burnham have training room at the Lake After Hours on Drusilla on Saturday mornings from 9-10:30 a.m. or until the last patient is seen.

New Research Article on Female ACL Injuries

Dr. Burnham co-authored a research study with Dr. Vonda Wright on female ACL tears. Dr. Wright is an orthopaedic surgeon who is an expert in sports medicine and fitness. This article reviews the most recent research on ACL injuries in female athletes. The rate of anterior cruciate ligament injuries is on the rise in female athletes. It is important that ACL surgery is not done on a “one-size-fits-all” basis, but rather must be individualized for each patient. ACL rehabilitation programs should target the hip, core, and trunk neuromuscular control. A team approach including the surgeon, athletic trainer, physical therapist, coach, family, and patient is paramount to success.

The research study was performed at the University of Pittsburgh Center for Sports Medicine.

New Research Article on the Anterolateral Complex of the Knee

Dr. Burnham co-authored a research study with Dr. Freddie Fu, Dr. Volker Musahl, Dr. Elmart Herbst, and Dr. Marcio Albers on a hot topic in sports medicine. The research article describes the complex anatomy and function of the anterolateral knee, including the anterolateral ligament (ALL) and the anterolateral complex, which have received much focus in recent media stories. These anatomical structures play an important role in knee stability, especially in the setting of ACL injury and ACL reconstruction in athletes.

The research study was performed at the University of Pittsburgh Center for Sports Medicine.

PRP – Platelet Rich Plasma

Overview of PRP

Of all the orthobiologic treatments, PRP has turned out to be the early star in the sports medicine world. It is affordable, low-risk, and effective. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is derived from one’s own blood, and contains a supraphysiologic concentration of platelets, healing enzymes, and growth factors. Although platelets are usually thought of in the context of the clotting process of blood, PRP contains many biologic elements which are crucial to healing (VEGF, FGF, IGF, PDGF, and TGF). In general, tendons and other soft tissues have a poor blood supply, and this can limit their ability to heal. An injection of concentrated PRP can provide healing growth factors to the injured area (imagine one month’s worth of healing nutrients in a single injection).

Cartilage Restoration Procedures

Overview

Articular cartilage is the material that lines the ends of bones within the joint. It provides lubrication and protection to the underlying bone, and allows smooth motion of the joint. Cartilage has poor blood supply, and once injured, it does not heal readily. Traditionally, there were very few successful treatments for cartilage damage except for joint replacement surgeries. However, emerging technologies have allowed us to successfully perform several types of cartilage repair and cartilage restoration treatments.
