In a study in the British Edition of the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, researchers reported decreased pain, better motion and a shorter period of overall recovery following quadriceps-sparing knee replacement as compared to traditional total knee replacement. Other studies have reported that important goals such as less pain, shorter period of physical therapy, drcreased time to normal activities, a shorter hospitalization, and less time using a walker or cane after surgery are achievable through this quadriceps-sparing approach.
Dr. McLaughlin serves as the Medical Director of the Hudson Valley Total Joint Center and performs quadriceps-sparing total knee replacement at St. Luke's Cornwall Hospital.
Dr. McLaughlin will be offering a free community presentation entitled "Arthritis of the Knee, Hip and Shoulder" on Thursday, June 15, 2017 at 6:30pm at the Hilton Homewood Suites at Stewart Airport. Call (845) 534-5768 to reserve your seat today.
