MACI – Repair Knee Cartilage Defects Using Your Own Cells
One of the great things in orthopedics is all the new technology. This year I am really excited about a procedure called MACI. With this innovative technique, I can repair cartilage defects using your own cells.
Regenerative Medicine – PRP and Stem Cells
Dr. Sabrina Strickland of the Hospital for Special Surgery gives an overview on some of the non-operative treatments she offers in her practice.
Dr. Strickland explains what to expect from MPFL repair. The Medial Patellofemoral Ligament attaches to the inner edge of the patella, helping to keep the patella from slipping. This type of surgery is a combination of arthroscopic and open techniques.
Rotator Cuff Repair
A rotator cuff tear is a common cause of pain and disability in adults. A torn rotator cuff weakens your shoulder, making many daily activities, like combing your hair or getting dressed, painful and difficult to do. Dr. Strickland explains what to expect from the surgery to repair your rotator cuff.
Dr. Strickland explains what to expect when undergoing a tibial tublercle osteotomy for patellofemoral arthritis or patellar instability.
Dr. Strickland shares a video about what to expect from an Anterior Cruciate Ligament surgery. An ACL tear is one of the most common knee injuries, often as a result of landing or planting in cutting and pivoting sports.
On both sides of the joint, between the cartilage femur and tibia surfaces, are the medial meniscus and lateral meniscus. The menisci act to absorb shock and work with the cartilage to reduce stresses between the tibia and the femur.
The labrum is the cartilage bumper encircling the shoulder socket. Dr. Strickland explains how the labrum can get injured and how to repair it surgically.
