Emerging Trends in Tendinopathy

AM with Dr. Robert Nirschl at AMSSM Meeting in Tampa

Dr. Kim Harmon, president of the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine organized an amazing group to discuss tendinopathy in Tampa last week. Dr. Robert Nirschl, the Godfather of tennis elbow spoke about his pioneering work in surgery. Dr. Hakan Alfredson from Sweden discussed the value of eccentric exercises for chronic tendinopathy. Dr. John McShane outlined the value of percutaneous tenotomy and Dr. David Connell from London spoke about the use of blood and stem cells for severe cases. AM presented the case for using platelet rich plasma for tendon related problems.

Overall, it was one of the best sessions ever presented on the topic. Great work and thanks to Dr. Harmon for bringing us all together.
