In an interview with Medical Research Alexis Colvin, MD, an associate professor of orthopaedic surgery at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, and James Gladstone, MD, co-chief of the sports medicine service at The Mount Sinai Hospital, discuss their recent research on knee arthroscopy. “Knee arthroscopy is one of the most commonly performed procedures in the U.S. There is minimal literature on when patients can expect to return to daily activity. We sought to help patients understand when they could expect to return to a number of basic activities, specifically in an urban environment where patients need to be mobile early,” the researchers said.

Even with Lin likely out past the trade deadline, Atkinson wants to see Brook-Lin together.

“They both believe that they can coexist together,” Atkinson said. “We haven’t said, ‘OK, we’re not going to see it.’ I understand the trade deadline and all that, but my mindset is I want to see them play when Jeremy’s back.”
