I would like to welcome you to my shoulder blog!his blog on a monthly, if not more frequent, basis, I will be sharing some of my thoughts and philosophies on the shoulder, shoulder disorders, shoulder treatments, as well as interesting or unique events surrounding my practice of orthopaedic surgery.
Caring for the shoulder – surgically, non-surgically, or otherwise – has been compared to making spaghetti sauce. If you were to poll 10 or even 100 different chefs on his/her recipe for spaghetti sauce, you are likely to obtain 100 different answers: One chef’s recipe may call for the tomatoes to be boiled for an additional 30 minutes, another may insist on 2 (and ONLY 2!) cloves of garlic, while another will insist that oregano is the key to success. When all is said and done, there will be more similarities than differences amongst the sauces, and each sauce will taste pretty darn good. But each chef will be convinced that their sauce is the best. And each will insist that their recipe is the only recipe that should be followed!
In these pages to follow you will get a sense of the science, philosophies, and decision-making that I use to help make my “spaghetti sauce.” I hope that you enjoy them, and I hope that they will be able to help you.
Patients who were malnourished prior to total shoulder arthroplasty experienced a significantly increased risk for blood transfusion, longer hospital stay and death within 30 days of surgery, according to results of this retrospective database study. Source: Healio Read More
