Morwood Published in Injury: International Journal of the Care of the Injured

Our very own Dr. Morwood has been published in the journal, Injury.

Dr. Morwood recently wrote about treating tibial fractures around total knee replacements. Although they are rare, tibial fractures can cause some serious complications, but chances of successful healing can be improved with the techniques detailed in Dr. Morwood’s paper!

Morwood Published in The Journal of Orthopaedic Trauma

The Journal of Orthopaedic Trauma is a premier orthopaedic journal, and Dr. Morwood was recently published in it.

Dr. Morwood, who specializes in knee replacements, wrote about how implants can be used to treat difficult fractures at the bottom end of the tibia to allow for immediate weight-bearing. That means a much faster recovery time for patients!

Dr. Akhil Sastry Study to be Presented at Orthopaedic Research Society Meeting

FEBRUARY 2, 2019 — Dr. Akhil Sastry, Board-Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon and provider at Atlantic Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, will have his surgical research data presented at the 2019 annual Orthopaedic Society Research meeting in Austin, Texas from February 2-5.

The meeting brings together hundreds of orthopaedic surgeons, nationally and internationally, with a mission to support and encourage research in surgery while providing a forum to share information for the well-being of patients.

Dr. Sastry’s research and data was collected from numerous surgeries performed with the MAKO robotic-arm assisted technology and shows its positive outcomes.

Robotic-assisted total joint arthroplasty has become increasingly popular in recent years, allowing for more precise surgical techniques, extensive preoperative and patient-specific planning, and improved soft tissue protection.

Dr. Sastry said it was an honor to be accepted to present his findings, with support from the Cleveland Clinic. His research includes data revealing robotic-assisted surgery patients had faster recovery times, and improved range of motion 90-day post-operation compared to those patients who were manually operated on, among other benefits.

Dr. Sastry was the first surgeon in the area to perform with the MAKO robotic-arm, leading the paradigm shift in how other orthopaedic surgeons think about surgery. He has since become a leading national expert, travelling and teaching other surgeons how to perform total knee, partial knee, and total hip surgery with the robotic-arm.
