July Highlight | Growth of Research: TRIA Woodbury & Registry Research

 
As TRIA grows, the TRIA Institute is growing alongside it. In late 2018, research expanded to our Woodbury location with Dr. Cooper and the STaR study, which follows the timing of surgical intervention and postoperative rehabilitation in patients with a multiligament knee injury. Now in 2019, we are excited to begin enrollment in the JUPITER registry study with Dr. Chambers and Dr. Cichanowski. JUPITER is a nationwide multi-site registry study following the treatment outcomes of patients with patellofemoral instability. We joined this registry study in December of 2017 and have enrolled approximately 60 patients to date in Bloomington.
 
JUPITER is 1 of 4 of our registry studies here at TRIA. The other registry studies include ROCK, which follows non-operative and operative outcomes of patients with Osteochondritis Dissecans lesions in the knee; Elbow OCD which follows non-operative and operative outcomes of patients with Osteochondritis Dissecans in the elbow; and ISAKOS which evaluates the influence of bony alignment on surgical outcomes after an MPFL reconstruction.
 
We hope that the knowledge gained from these registry studies will improve patient care in the future and look forward to further opportunities to grow research at Woodbury.

Q&A
What is a hobby you enjoy when you find spare time?
I enjoy going for walks, bike rides, or trips to the park with my family.

Would you name the most valuable piece of advice you have been given?
“Outsource the BS.” This advice from a female orthopaedic surgeon mentor of mine has been invaluable. I love my job but it does keep me busy. To maximize quality time spent with my family at home, I take advantage of opportunities to seek outside help for the more mundane tasks around the house.

If you were to travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
I would like to go to Italy - I LOVE Italian food (and wine!), and I have seen beautiful photos of Italy but have never traveled there. It is definitely on my bucket list.

Outcomes for Surgical Treatment of Femoroacetabular Impingement in Adults
Caitlin C. Chambers & Alan L. Zhang

Abstract

PURPOSE OF REVIEW:

To assess the outcomes of modern techniques for arthroscopic surgery in the treatment of femoroacetabular impingement.
 

RECENT FINDINGS:

While initially approached by means of open surgical hip dislocation, recent literature has shown generally good outcomes of arthroscopic treatment for femoroacetabular impingement. Modern advances in hip arthroscopy technique and implants now allow for labral repair or reconstruction when indicated. Arthroscopic treatment of femoroacetabular impingement results in significant improvements in patient pain and function, with low complication rates and high patient satisfaction. A majority of improvements in these patients occur within 1 to 2 years post-operatively. Hip arthroscopy for femoroacetabular impingement yields the best results in patients without significant arthritis or hip dysplasia.

Opportunity Awaits!
