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.
“It’s a huge game changer, been trying to do for 10 to 15 years, clarity and resolution are now tremendous,” Dr. James Gladstone, Mt. Sinai Health System said.
Using only a local anesthesia, Dr. Gladstone inserts the MI-Eye-2 into Liz’s knee. She was actually watching the same thing Dr. Gladstone was seeing.
It allows him to check and see what and where there’s damage inside the knee.
“Almost as good as O.R. scope, and in many ways better than MRI because it can give you direct visualization,” Dr. Gladstone said.
The Post spoke with Dr. James Gladstone, co-chief of sports medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, who said three to five weeks is “very reasonable and may even [be optimistic]. If they come out and say he’ll take eight weeks, I wouldn’t be surprised.”
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.”
Vericel Corporation announced the FDA approval of an autologous cellularized scaffold for the repair of symptomatic, full-thickness cartilage defects of the knee in adult patients.
The first FDA-approved product that applies the process of tissue engineering to grow cells on scaffolds, each Maci (Vericel Corporation) implant is composed of a patient’s cells that are expanded and placed onto a bioresorbable porcine-derived collagen membrane that is implanted over the area where the defective or damaged tissue was removed, according to a press release.
“The extent is going to be if there’s any tearing and whether or not it needs to be surgically fixed,” said Dr. Alexis Colvin, an Orthopaedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. “If it does need surgery, he could be out 6-12 weeks and it’ll probably be closer to 12 weeks just because of the fact that he goes back to professional football. But if it’s just a strain, then it could be as short as a week to a week-and-a-half.”
Welcome to the Mount Sinai Health Beat, a feature with the official medical provider of USTA Eastern, USTA, and the US Open. This month, James Gladstone, MD, Co-Chief of the Sports Medicine Service at The Mount Sinai Hospital, talks about avoiding injuries: For the last several years working at the US Open, I have spent much of […]
“Without proper recovery, athletes may experience burnout and feel staleness with their sport,” says Dr. Colvin. Symptoms such as increased irritability, anger, exhaustion, or reduced motivation may indicate a stressed mental state. “Take time to check in with yourself after play to make sure you’re still enjoying the activity and not overworking yourself,” says Dr. Colvin.
Dr. Alexis Colvin, an orthopedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at New York’s Mount Sinai Hospital, continued exercising during her own three pregnancies.
Women who exercise throughout a pregnancy tend to experience less fatigue and swelling, as well as fewer incidents of varicose veins, Colvin said. Psychologically, exercise can also help improve a mother’s mood and self-esteem.
“If you are exercising pre-pregnancy, you should absolutely keep it up,” said Colvin, formerly a physician at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
“While any type of weight-bearing exercise is recommended to maintain bone density and reduce osteoperosis, excessive running can lead to the opposite problem of stress fractures, seconds Alexis Colvin, M.D., an orthopaedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Not to mention, the study only looked at the density of the heel bone, and not other bones that are typically measured for osteoporosis, such as the hip or lumbar spine, she explains.”
“I’d say it’s one of the best-case scenarios because he does not need surgery and it’ll recover completely on its own,” said Dr. Colvin, who was speaking generally and without direct knowledge of Curry’s case. “It depends on how quickly he feels he’s up to speed. But he’s in good shape to begin with, and it’s not a very severe injury.”
