Dr. William Murrell talks about new treatment options needed for symptomatic knee cartilage problems -Dubai Press Release

symptomatic knee cartilage problems Dubai press release

Dr. William Murrell speaks on New treatment options needed for UAE national men in 20’s and 30’s suffering from symptomatic knee cartilage problems-Dubai Press Release

Orthopaedic surgeons in the UAE have been working tirelessly to bring a cutting edge treatment from abroad to help treat various symptomatic knee cartilage conditions that are commonly found in UAE men who are in their 20’s and 30’s. Although total knee replacements are frequently used to treat patients of 55 or older, experts in the UAE are now looking for alternative treatment methods for those younger patients who wish to remain as productive members of society.

For the past three years, Dr Murrell and his team have been working on bringing in a cutting edge treatment from abroad that could significantly help these younger patients. The treatment utilises a common orthopaedic procedure called ‘marrow stimulation’, combined with adding autologous (cells from the patient) peripheral blood progenitor cells (cells that can differentiate to form one or more kinds of cells, but cannot divide and reproduce indefinitely) and hyaluronic acid that is injected after surgery. Many of the treatments offered abroad are not yet available in the UAE due to regulations surrounding the manipulation of tissue abroad and then reimporting them into the country.

March 2014 Dr. William Murrell shares experience with colleagues on the recent advancements in sports shoulder surgery at the Osteopathic Health Centre in Al Wasl Rd, Umm Suqueim 2. Dubai Sports Medicine

Osteopathic Health Centre

Thanks to the Osteopathic Health Centre team Peter ZacopkanMoira MacdonaldAnil PrasadDominique Jordan, Saiqa RizwaniVictoria RoperLauren Whalan, and Renata Von Kouh for the warm welcome and the great discussions of experiences.  Dubai Sports Medicine-Sports Shoulder Surgery is committed to engagement of all providers in the region to help elevate and raise the clinical acumen of all those involved.  Case based discussions of commonly encountered sports shoulder surgery problems like shoulder dislocations, cartilage tears, rotator cuff tears, clavicle fractures, calcium deposits, arthritis of the shoulder, frozen shoulder, and shoulder separations are very helpful to review the epidemiology, classifications, diagnostic criteria, pertinent imaging and laboratory needs.   Additionally, conservative treatments that may consist of ultrasound guided injections, use of biologics such as PRP and Stem Cells, exercise regimes, rehabilitation protocols, and in the end surgery.  Discussions highlighted the evidence based literature and the great successes seen with well thought out programs like the MOON program for rotator cuff problems.  It was recognized that much work in the future is needed to better investigate the needs of the region, through the initiation of injury prevention programs, preparticipation exams, injury monitoring and reporting systems.  Focus for future programs will be more on imaging and specific rehab protocols.  In addition discussions of other conservative modalites like radial shockwave, pilates, manual therapy, aqua therapy, Osteopathy, sports therapy, and message therapy are reserved for the future as these are some of the pillars of the Osteopathic Health Centre’s clinical offering.

Case 1 was a case of SICK Scapula Syndrome with Posterior Labral Tear

Case 2 was Massive Rotator Cuff Tear in Semi-Professional Ice Hockey Player with neurologic symptoms

Case 3 was Adhesive Capsulitis or Frozen shoulder in active weekend warrior

Case 4 was Acromioclavicular Joint Dislocation in active male.

Future cases will discuss additional sports shoulder surgery and also the use of biologics like PRP and Stem Cells in the Advancing field of Biologic Orthopaedic Sports Medicine/Surgery
