Dr. Shane Nho, sports medicine and hip arthroscopy specialist at Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush, recently published a study further proving that arthroscopic hip surgery is an effective treatment for femoroacetablular impingement (FAI), a hip condition in which the ball shaped femoral head in the hip rubs abnormally or does not permit a normal range of motion in the acetabular socket. This condition occurs most often in young to middle aged patients.
The study, “Hip Arthroscopic Surgery for Femoroacetabular Impingement with Capsular Management: Factors Associated With Achieving Clinically Significant Outcomes,” was published in The American Journal of Sports Medicine. It looked post-operatively at 386 patients undergoing primary hip arthroscopic surgery with routine capsular closure for FAI that had failed nonsurgical management between January 2012 and January 2014.
In this Orthopedics This Week article, he says, “The field has been evolving over the past several years and the patient selection and surgical technique has also changed. Our paper is the largest series in the literature and represents the state of the art in hip arthroscopy for the treatment of femoroacetabular impingement.”
Episode 17.16 with Hosts Steve Kashul and Dr. Brian Cole. Broadcasting on ESPN Chicago 1000 WMVP-AM Radio, Saturdays from 8:30 to 9:00 AM/c.
Segment One (01:31): Steve and Dr. Cole talk with Perry Miroballi, the Co-Owner of four New Balance Stores, about proper athletic shoe selection; providing video analysis and foot scans to determine pressure points and arch type; the wide variety of sports specific shoes that are now available from New Balance and the advancements in New Balance shoe technology. More than 500 major league baseball players now wear New Balance Shoes and they now make a golf shoe that is only 7 ounces, the lightest shoe in golf.
Segment Two (12:52): Steve and Dr. Cole talk about a wide range of non-surgical options for pain and orthopedic problems and how the art of medicine serves to determine the right approach to treating injuries.
Segment Three (20:08): Steve and Dr. Cole talk with Dr. Chris Stout, Vice President of Research and Data Analytics at ATI Physical therapy. The discussion centers around bone loss, osteoporosis and calcium deficiency; the importance of proper life style, exercise and nutrition to minimize the effects of bone loss. Dr. Stout is also on faculty of the College of Medicine at the University of Illinois, Chicago. He has published over 35 books and been translated into eight languages. He founded a 501(c)(3) to work on international humanitarian projects, and subsequently has won five international humanitarian awards and four additional honorary doctorates.
Hip dysplasia, a condition where the hip socket doesn’t fully cover the ball portion of the femur, resulting in instability, is rising in young active women, who have probably had it since birth. Recent research shows that receiving care early is vital to a successful treatment experience for hip dysplasia patients. Doing so may help patients delay or avoid having a total hip replacement (arthroplasty).
Dr. Joel C. Williams brings seven years of training and passion for complex fracture care, post-traumatic deformity, pelvis and acetabular surgery, and complex hip surgery to Rush University Medical Center.
Dr. Williams is a native of Michigan and graduated from the Michigan State University Honors Program. He then attended medical school at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York. There, he was awarded a Doris Duke Clinical Research Fellowship and spent a year doing basic science research.
Dr. Williams’ surgical training began at the University of California, Davis Medical Center, where he completed his residency in orthopedic surgery. While a resident, he did a research fellowship and was awarded a grant from the Orthopaedic Trauma Association to investigate fracture healing. Additionally, he was awarded a traveling fellowship from the AO Trauma Foundation to study orthopedic traumatology in Chur, Switzerland with Dr. Cristoph Sommer. More…
Segment Two (12:26): Dr. Cole as head team physician for the Chicago Bulls discusses the various challenges related to the NBA Draft Combine and how they are dealt with in what is described as a complicated and chaotic process.
Segment Three (17:09):Karen Malkin from Karen Malkin Health Counseling talks about why it’s harder for adults today to maintain the same weight as those 20 to 30 years ago did, even at the same levels of food intake and exercise; how to maintain a healthy microbiome/weight and how we can avoid the obesity epidemic.
People are exposed to more chemicals that might be weight-gain inducing. Pesticides, flame retardants, and the substances in food packaging might all be altering our hormonal processes and tweaking the way our bodies put on and maintain weight.
The use of prescription drugs has risen dramatically since the ‘70s and ‘80s. Prozac, the first blockbuster SSRI, came out in 1988. Antidepressants are now one of the most commonly prescribed drugs in the U.S., and many of them have been linked to weight gain.
The microbiomes of Americans might have somehow changed between the 1980s and now. It’s well known that some types of gut bacteria make a person more prone to weight gain and obesity.
Karen Malkin is certified as an Integrative Health Coach and Lifestyle Practitioner and a Certified Eating Psychology Coach. Karen has a private practice in Glencoe, Illinois.
