Professional baseball players are likely to return to sport after a meniscectomy, according to a new study. The study, “Performance and Return to Sports After Meniscectomy in Professional Baseball Players,” was published online on February 11, 2022, in The American Journal of Sports Medicine.
Arthroscopic Hip Capsular Reconstruction Using Iliotibial Band Allograft as a Salvage Option for Unrepairable Capsular Defects Demonstrates Good Survivorship and Improved Patient-Reported Outcomes
Purpose: To describe patient outcomes 3 to 5 years after arthroscopic hip capsule reconstruction.
If a doctor has told you that physical therapy could help you and you’ve never had it before, you probably have some questions about what to expect from physical therapy.
If the shoulder blade, or scapula, is out of position, or if there are any problems with the tendons attached to the scapula, it can cause pain and make movement difficult. Several stretches may help ease this pain.

Collapsed femoral heads caused by osteonecrosis—otherwise known as avascular necrosis— unfortunately represent the root cause for approximately 10% of all hip replacements nationwide. Daniel Wiznia, MD, is utilizing a stem cell treatment at Yale School of Medicine and integrating new techniques along with 3D imaging technology as part of a joint-preservation procedure.
The fourth-year biomedical engineering undergraduate student has conducted research to better understand the biomechanics of returning to sport after an ACL injury, including better ways to measure landing mechanics to improve clinical recommendations for injured athletes.
