SACRAMENTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Surgical Affiliates Management Group, a leading surgical hospitalist company with proven results, today announced the launch of a new acute care orthopedic surgicalist services program at Memorial Hospital Los Banos (MHLB), part of the Sutter Health network. Located in the rural San Joaquin Valley of Central California approximately 60 miles south east of San Jose, MHLB is a 44-bed facility providing acute care and is the only full-service hospital serving Los Banos and the surrounding geographic areas. With the opening of this new program, residents will now have access 24/7 to acute orthopedic surgical care in their own backyard. “Surgical Affiliates is already successfully partnering with Los Banos in the hospital’s acute general surgery program, so it made sense for us to bring in a complementary orthopedic surgical team,” said Leon J. Owens, MD, FACS, CEO of Surgical Affiliates Management Group. “We have implemented these orthopedic surgicalist programs in hospitals in busy metropolitan areas and in rural locations, where the challenge of getting consistent orthopedic surgical coverage is especially difficult. This program is a long-term, sustainable approach to meeting orthopedic surgery needs in the community and ensuring consistent coverage for patients needing emergency orthopedic care.” The goal for the acute orthopedic surgery program is to have a team of orthopedic surgeons, who are focused on providing care in the community 24/7, both to patients inside the hospital, as well as those who arrive in the Emergency Department needing orthopedic care. “Our acute orthopedic program is a great partnership that will help create a long-term, sustainable approach for meeting orthopedic surgery needs in the community and ensure consistent coverage for those patients needing emergency orthopedic care,” said Pamela Mehta, MD, Surgical Affiliates’ Chief of Orthopedic Surgery. “Up until now, community residents who have found themselves in need of urgent orthopedic care would have to find that care outside the community. Now, they will be able to have their care and procedures done right here at their local hospital.” In addition to Dr. Mehta, the local physician team for this new program includes Vincent Colin, MD, and Kerisimasi Reynolds, DO. The Surgical Affiliates’ model is based on leadership from expert surgeons and executives, building outstanding surgical teams that follow evidence-based guidelines in care delivery and collaboration with the hospital staff to consistently improve patient care and safety. As a result, there is increased physician and patient satisfaction, improved clinical outcomes, reduced length of stay and decreased costs per case. Surgical Affiliates Management Group is the first and only surgical hospitalist company with published, proven results that its programs improve patient care, lower costs, reduce readmissions and enhance hospital throughput. Surgical Affiliates’ System of Care© is a permanent solution to the challenge of providing integrated, 24/7 hospital-based surgical teams and one that raises the level of hospital performance across the board, preparing these facilities for the world of pay-for-performance and accountable care models. Surgical Affiliates provides trauma, orthopedic and acute care surgery programs in hospitals ranging from rural facilities to large community hospitals to multi-hospital systems.

(PRLEAP.COM)Louisville orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine physician Dr. Stacie Grossfeld is launching a video series focused on ACL Injuries and ACL Injury Prevention. The video series is an adaptation of the Santa Monica ACL Prevention Program. The Santa Monica ACL Prevention Program was created by Dr. Bert Mendelbaum from Santa Monica Sports Medicine. Studies completed in 2001 and again in 2005 showed a 60% reduction rate of ACL injuries in Division 1 female soccer players after implementing the program. Dr. Stacie Grossfeld is double board certified in orthopedic surgery and sports medicine. As a sports medicine physician, Dr. Grossfeld treats many patients suffering from ACL injuries . As reported by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons there are around 200,000 ACL injuries in the U.S. every year. The majority of these injuries occur in youth athletes participating in soccer, basketball, lacrosse, and football. Dr. Grossfeld wants to focus on ACL Injury Prevention in order to keep young people interested and active in sports while also avoiding an injury that while preventable, sidelines many kids. In fact, 63% of athletes who experience an ACL injury never return to the same level of athletic play that they were competing in prior to injury.Interestingly, the most common reason that athletes do not return to the same level of sports play is psychological. Athletes fear that they will reinjure themselves and after 5 to 6 months of recovery from the initial ACL injury, do not want to risk another tear. Once an ACL injury occurs in an athlete, 20% of them will have recurring ACL injuries and up to 80% of them will develop early onset arthritis. ACL tears most often occur in young athletes who play sports that require a lot of twisting, jumping, and contact. It is also proven that females are 8 times more likely to tear their ACL after they hit puberty. Why? It is thought that the change in neuro muscular development controls the jump in the ACL tear rate.The only way to confirm an ACL injury is through an MRI, but there are three symptoms that are common among ACL injuries. The symptoms include:If you or someone you love is suffering from any of these symptoms, you should seek qualified medical attention for diagnosis and treatment.Dr. Grossfeld's ACL Injury Prevention Program is comprised of 20 to 25 minutes of exercise. If this workout is done 2-3 times a week, as a warm up, it will prevent ACL injuries in both male and female athletes. Not only will it help prevent ACL injuries, but it will also help those who have already suffered from an ACL injury who want to return to sports avoid a second injury.As explained by Dr. Grossfeld: "It is so important in this time and date and age for any athlete who is planning on playing a high risk sport for ACL injury such as soccer, basketball, lacrosse, football, they should be involved in an ACL prevention program. It's so easy. It's only 20 mins three times a week. Use it as a warm up and reduce your athlete's rate of ACL injury at least 50%."There are five components to the ACL Injury Prevention Program:Each component of the program includes multiple exercises that are covered in the video series produced by Dr. Grossfeld. Interestingly, Dr. Grossfeld also discusses a case study that was done on two groups of young adults who had all undergone ACL surgery. One group did the ACL Injury Prevention Program while participating in sports and the other group did not. The group who did the preventative exercises had a recurring injury rate of 5 times less than the group who did not perform the exercises.Dr. Stacie L. Grossfeld is a graduate of the University Of Louisville School Of Medicine. She served her internship and residency at the University of Minnesota, and completed a fellowship in Sports Medicine at the Fowler- Kennedy Sports Medicine Center. Dr. Grossfeld works as an orthopedic surgeon at Orthopaedic Specialists in Louisville, Kentucky. She is Board Certified in both Sports Medicine and in Orthopedic Surgery by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery (ABOS). Dr. Grossfeld also serves as an Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of Louisville in the Department of Family Medicine.Dr. Grossfeld's special interests as an orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine physician include ACL injuries, knee and shoulder reconstruction, shoulder injuries, and sports medicine. Along with her work at Orthopaedic Specialists and the University of Louisville, Dr. Grossfeld also serves on the Board of Directors for the YMCA at Norton Commons and the Louisville Sports Commission. If you or someone you know needs treatment for an ACL injury, Dr. Grossfeld can help.

The February 13, 2017, assassination of Kim Jong-nam, the half brother of North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un, heightened awareness and concern over nerve agents and the deadly use of chemical weapons. Many questions exist about the effect that nerve agents can have on the human nervous system and how even small doses can be lethal. Jay Jagannathan, M.D., of Michigan-based Jagannathan Neurosurgical Institute, and one of the United States’ most prominent neurosurgeons, is available to news media to provide his medical expertise and analysis. News journalists interested in interviewing Dr. Jagannathan should contact Jeff Caponigro at (248) 353-3270 or email jcap(at)caponigro.com. Law-enforcement officials report that Kim Jong-nam was killed at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Malaysia by two women who covered his face with the VX nerve agent. One drop of VX, or about 10 milligrams, can be lethal. “In general terms, such a nerve agent prevents the proper functioning of glands and muscles that are necessary for normal breathing,” said Dr. Jagannathan. “Even  a tiny dose of a neurotoxin such as VX can paralyze muscles and cause respiratory arrest.” Dr. Jagannathan is a Diplomate of the American Board of Neurological Surgery, the American Academy of Neurological and Orthopedic Surgery and the American Board of Spinal Surgery. He has been a “Featured Neurosurgeon” in Hour Detroit magazine’s ‘Top Docs’ issue in 2014, 2015 and 2016.

In 1867 the German pathologist Cohnheim hypothesized that non-hematopoietic, bone marrow-derived cells could migrate through the blood stream to distant sites of injury and participate in tissue regeneration. In 1868, the French physiologist Goujon studied the osteogenic potential of bone marrow on rabbits. Friedenstein demonstrated the existence of a nonhematopoietic stem cell within bone marrow more than a hundred years later. Since this discovery, the research on mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) has explored their therapeutic potential. The prevalent view during the second century was that mature cells were permanently locked into the differentiated state and could not return to a fully immature, pluripotent stem-cell state. Recently, Japanese scientist (first orthopaedist) Shinya Yamanaka proved that introduction of a small set of transcription factors into a differentiated cell was sufficient to revert the cell to a pluripotent state. Yamanaka shared the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine and opened a new door for potential applications of MSCs. This manuscript describes the concept of MSCs from the period when it was relegated to the imagination to the beginning of the twenty-first century and their application in orthopaedic surgery. © 2015, SICOT aisbl.
