Science Daily has recently published an article highlighting a retrospective review of 105 patients who underwent MPFL reconstructions with Beth E. Shubin Stein, MD, with a 10 year follow up.
Dr. Shubin Stein is quoted in the article saying, “With this study, we found that MPFL reconstruction is a safe and effective treatment for patients with patellofemoral instability even if in patients that have trochlear dysplasia.”
Dr. Shubin Stein has been featured on the Hospital for Special Surgery’s blog. In the article, Dr. Shubin Stein provides a FAQ for treating knee pain.
When asked if heat or cold is better for treating knee pain, Dr. Shubin Stein answers, “Heat is good for muscle tightness or soreness, but cold therapy is better to decrease inflammation (i.e swollen joints after exercise or after injury). It is important to consult with your physician.”
