According to a recent press release, experts from the department of orthopedic surgery at NYU Langone Medical Center, New York, NY, will present new research and clinical findings at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS). The data will reportedly encompass the latest findings about diseases of the muscle, tendon, bone, and joint. The event is slated for February 7 to February 11 in San Francisco, Calif.

Joseph Zuckerman, MD, Walter A.L. Thompson Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery, chair of the department of orthopaedic surgery at NYU Langone Medical Center, past president of AAOS, describes the benefits the latest clinical findings have provided researchers, “The introduction of new imaging and research techniques, combined with advances in clinical care, allows our researchers to identify the basic biology of joint tissues and the impact of functional decline due to aging and the onset of osteoarthritis,” Zuckerman explains.

The release reports that several members of the NYU Langone Medical Center faculty will present papers and lead discussions on a range of sub-specialties during the meeting include “Reverse Total Shoulder Anthroplasty”, “Hand and Wrist: A Review Course”, and “Knee Osteoarthritis: Viscosupplementation to Cartilage Transplantation Resurfacing and Procedures.”

The result of the research has provided experts the ability to, “bring basic science discoveries directly to the bedside and use advanced bioengineering techniques to promote tissue regeneration and improve long-term patient results,” Zuckerman adds.
