Dr. Jonathan Garino lecture at the 44th Annual Advances in Arthroplasty Course

Feb 16, 2015

Premier’s orthopaedic surgeon Dr Garino was invited to speak at the 44th Annual Advances in Arthroplasty Course, the longest Continuing Education Course at Harvard Medical School. The program highlighted the importance of using evidence-based medicine in effectively dealing with important challenges in the field of total joint arthroplasty surgery, focusing on hip and knee arthroplasty and arthroscopy, as well as early treatment of hip disease in young adults.

Dr. Garino spoke on ceramic replacements, specifically the long-term results with ceramic bearings in total hip replacement. Dr Garino described how ceramic replacements are great for younger patients because they rarely break and are virtually impossible to wear out. Ceramic hip replacements have life expectancies that exceed that of the traditional hip replacements.

One way to help the concussed athlete is to teach the players to recognize the signs and report when their teammate is hurt. Players wouldn’t hesitate to report a player lying on the field with a broken leg. Consequences of a concussion can be much worse. Sadly, recent studies have shown that even with more concussion education, athletes were not more likely to report the injury. The fear of not being able to continue playing was the main deterrent.

Ceramic-on-ceramic hip replacements are an improvement on traditional hip replacements for a other reasons as well. Some of the benefits to include pain relief from achy, arthritic joints and a lesser chance of breaking because of the durable material.
