Experts from the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at NYU Langone Medical Center will present their latest research and clinical findings on diseases of the muscle, tendon, bone and joint at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), February 7-11 in San Francisco, California.
"The introduction of new imaging and research techniques, combined with advances in clinical care, allows our researchers to identify the basic biology of joint tissues and the impact of functional decline due to aging and the onset of osteoarthritis," said Joseph Zuckerman, MD, the Walter A. L. Thompson Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery, chair of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at NYU Langone Medical Center and past-president of AAOS. "As a result we are able to bring basic science discoveries directly to the bedside and use advanced bioengineering techniques to promote tissue regeneration and improve long-term patient results."
Several members of the faculty are presenting papers and leading discussions on a variety of sub-specialties, including:
**Reverse Total Shoulder Arthroplasty**
Podium Presentation: Thursday, Feb. 9 at 10:50AM
Presenter: Young W. Kwon, MD; Authors: Deepan N. Patel, MD; Brett Young, MD; Ikemefuna Onyekwelu, MD; Joseph D. Zuckerman, MD; and Young W. Kwon, MD, PhD
This presentation will discuss the use of reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (rTSA) as a treatment for failed shoulder arthroplasty requiring revision surgery.
**The Effect of Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix on Rotator Cuff Healing**
Podium Presentation: Thursday, Feb. 9 at 2:15PM
Presenters: Laith Jazrawi, MD and Eric Strauss, MD; Authors: Saqib Hasan, BS; Samir Nayyar, MD; Kunal Kalra, MD; Meredith Mayo, BA; Martin Quirno, MD; Laith M. Jazrawi, MD; and Eric Strauss, MD
