Reconocido experto en ortopedia asiste a la reunión de Cirugía de la Mano 2015 en las Bahamas

Renowned orthopaedic expert attends 2015 Hand Surgery meeting in the Bahamas – The Tribune Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email DR ALEJANDRO Badia, recognised as one of the top hand surgeons in the United States, will serve as a opening speaker at the American Association for Hand Surgery 2015 Annual Meeting scheduled to be held in Nassau tomorrow morning. He will be giving a presentation on the latest in “Maximising Economics in a Changing Health Care Environment” and “Sports Injuries of the Hand and Wrist” at Atlantis starting at 7am. During the meeting, Dr Badia, who is the founder and medical director of Badia Hand to Shoulder Centre in Florida, will be identifying the barriers to navigating through the ever-changing health care environment by presenting a solution of coordinated, convenient, responsive, affordable and expert orthopaedic urgent care, and speak on common athletic injuries of the hand and wrist. “I’m so pleased to be in beautiful Bahamas,” he said. “My mission has been and always is to create educational synergy and to expose great technology that allows minimally invasive procedure accelerates recovery, prevents some surgical procedures, and shortens post-surgical rehabilitation. This system provides our patients, mostly athletes who depend so much on their physical excellence, with better healthcare and better recovery methods and options.” Dr Badia has successfully performed surgery on many professional athletes from around the world, including on high-level tennis, polo, golf, NFL and NBA players. “Major fractures of the hand or wrist occur only during high-speed contact or in older athletes who may have osteoporosis,” he said. “Complex fractures below the elbow can occur and there is a great variation in the fracture patterns. It is important that an upper extremity specialist evaluate these injuries, as recovery of full wrist and hand range of motion is often difficult. Fractures of the upper arm (humerus) may also result from this injury and can even extend into the shoulder joint.” Traumatic (acute) refers to any specific, sharp pain that is of rapid onset or pain that results from a specific traumatic incident such as an athletic injury. Traumatic injuries are more commonly seen in athletes who participate in certain sports that require a higher level of contact (football, hockey or wrestling). The most common traumatic fracture injury in the athletic population is found in the fingers and include joint dislocations, sprains, muscle strains, broken bones, tendon inflammation and ligament. Overuse (chronic) injuries are more likely to occur in athletes who engage in sports that require them to repeat a particular movement (baseball, soccer, tennis or golf). Overuse injuries are likely to be stress induced and include tendon inflammation and dislocation, nerve injury, and overuse stress fractures. Chronic injuries have a higher tendency to develop long-term effects. However, long-term disability is less likely to occur from overuse injuries than from traumatic injuries. An athlete’s performance may significantly diminish, if the chronic injuries are left untreated. Surgery may be required if the overuse chronic injuries persists and continues to develop over time. “Arthroscopy for hand and wrist pathology is a minimally invasive surgical technique used to explore a joint from within. Tiny incisions are used to insert a fibreoptic instrument which serves as a camera to the inside of a joint and allows to not only diagnose a problem but often times concludes what definitive treatment should would be best for the patient. This is opposed to the more standard technique of open joint surgery, which can result in increased scarring and prolonged recovery time,” said Dr Badia. Dr Badia was nominated in 2012 as “one of the top 45 great hand and upper extremity surgeons” by Becker’s Orthopaedic & Spine Review. He is also in conversations with leading Brazilian medical authorities to organise a sports medicine conference prior to the 2016 Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro. As time goes on, Badia hopes to see his line of medicine considered a primary source of medical care. “There’s so much to think about when you get injured, and seeing the right person quickly can make a big difference. If you can save money along the way, it’s really a win-win,” he says. “We are a more cost-effective solution with the potential to make a huge dent on the overall health care system.” Article Reference: http://www.tribune242.com/news/2015/jan/20/renowned-orthopaedic-expert-attends-2015-hand-surg/ Related Articles: Blog Patient Articles Wrist Is WFH Sparking Your Carpal Tunnel? 9 Ways to Curb the Pain Athletic injuries | Sports Injuries | Sports Therapy, Bahamas, carpal tunnel, carpal tunnel syndrome, common conditions, endoscopic, english, Hand, sports injuries, sports medicine, wrist Blog Patient Articles Wrist What’s Really Causing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Minimally Invasive Shoulder Surgery in Miami, FL How best to repair the labrum, a cartilage structure that deepens the socket of the shoulder joint, remains somewhat controversial, but knotless sutures and bioabsorbable tissue anchors are some of the technological advances improving outcomes. says orthopedic surgeon Alejandro Badia. Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Badia, who is one of the notable hand and upper limb orthopedic surgeons in Miami, Florida, reports significant clinical success in performing minimally invasive, arthroscopic surgery, proving particularly beneficial for closing so-called SLAP tears—injuries to the upper portion of the labrum, the fibrous cartilage that surrounds the rim of the shoulder socket. The knotless sutures, loaded onto bioabsorbable anchors, are used to reattach the detached labral tissue at the right tension to return the shoulder joint to full movement. Badia says the knotless systems remove the risk of irritating the shoulder joint and also allow for better control of the tension during the repair. The repair of a labral tear/detachment is now done arthroscopically via three small portal incisions, he says. The labrum helps stabilize the humerus in its socket, whereas the primary role of rotator cuff tendons is to maintain the head within that socket allowing shoulder motion. Tears in the labrum can be caused by trauma, such as sports-related injuries; repetitive use of the shoulder by athletes and workers for lifting, catching or the overhead throwing of heavy objects; and simple weakening from aging, Badia says. A common cause of a labral injury occurs when a person instinctively outstretches the arms in an effort to break a fall. Falling directly on the shoulder can also tear the labrum by causing a dislocation of the shoulder joint. The shoulder is highly vulnerable to disease and injury because it is the most unstable joint in the body, explains Badia, who is founder and medical director of the Badia Hand to Shoulder Center and OrthoNow. “Yet, it is this very instability that provides the shoulder with such an extensive range of motion, allowing it to assume up to 1,000 different positions.” Patients with labral tears may complain of nonspecific pain and sensitivity in the front of the shoulder, shoulder popping and a general sense of instability in the joint—symptoms that often make diagnosis difficult. Labral tears are hard to prevent as they tend to be from sports-related or traumatic-injury events. Shoulder pain is one of the most common musculoskeletal complaints of patients but pinpointing the precise nature of the problem can be challenging and should be done by an orthopedic specialist experienced in treating disorders of the upper limbs,” Badia says. Labral tears are a common cause of persistent shoulder pain and are difficult to diagnose, even by magnetic resonance imaging. Many times, the diagnosis is made at the time of the arthroscopy, where a fiber optic instrument is inserted into the shoulder, allowing diagnosis and definitive repair during that same outpatient procedure. However, occasional failed labral repairs can be because of ineffective or incorrect suture anchor placement and overtensioning of the labrum tissue and biceps tendon, Badia says Badia emphasizes conservative approaches can be initially used with small labral tears including cryotherapy, anti-inflammatory medications, rehabilitation and perhaps injection of certain orthobio agents, such as PRP.   “Surgery should only be performed if rest and rehabilitation are unsuccessful in healing the injury,” he adds. “Any operation should be performed not only to repair the labral tissue but address the injury that resulted in the tear in the first place.” Our Out Patient Surgery Center Blogs: Dr. Badia Will Lecture at Becker’s 29th Annual Meeting Dr. Badia Will Lecture at Becker’s 29th Annual Meeting Insurance Medical Loss Ratio Mandate Effect on Healthcare Insurance Medical Loss Ratio Mandate Effect on Healthcare Q&A for Beacon Council Newsletter OrthoNOW Q&A for Beacon Council Newsletter OrthoNOW Want to see more articles?
