2021 TPMG James O. Johnston Orthopaedic Symposium - SPORTS

The ideal treatment for patients who have experienced first time shoulder dislocation is controversial.  Because of the high recurrent dislocation rate, some orthopedic surgeons advocate for surgical stabilization for first time dislocator. Others recommend standard closed reduction, followed by varying time periods of immobilization and physical therapy.

A major focus of the 2021 JOJ will be trying to identify which patients are candidates for immediate surgery, and which would do better with immobilization and PT.  Subjects that will be explored are: 1) Is there a particular position or length of immobilization that leads to better outcomes?  2) Is there a preferred physical therapy regiment?  3) How do associated cartilage injuries or bony injuries influence outcomes? and 4) Are their particular patient, injury, or treatment characteristics that influence outcomes?

A second area of focus will be to coordination of care between sports medicine providers.   Sports medicine care in Northern California has recently been redesigned to improve collaboration among providers.  The goal is to deliver world class, high quality, efficient sports medicine care to our members.  We will engage stakeholders in Orthopedic Surgery, Sports Medicine Clinics, Musculoskeletal Medicine, Adult Primary Care, and Physical Therapy to establish patient-focused standards of care and best practices.  These standards should help drive improved outcomes and efficiencies, i.e., greater value to our members and organization. 

A third focus will be continued improvements in the management of patients with ACL injury.  Our registry studies that showed that allograft use was associated with higher revisions rates have led to a dramatic decrease in allograft utilization.  We will to continue to emphasize these results to ensure that allografts are used appropriately.  We will also continue our efforts to establish ACL post-op protocols.
