Shoulder Replacement Surgery -Post Surgery

Posted in Orthopedics on Tuesday, 22 July 2014

Elder holding shoulder

Shoulder replacement surgery is a type of surgery that replaces the ends of bones in the shoulder joint, either by completely removing them or capping them with artificial materials. This helps to cut down on joint pain and enable further use of the arm. There are various reasons someone might need shoulder replacement surgery. Acute injuries as the result of an accident or injury, bone diseases such as osteoarthritis are another cause. And sometimes, the bones degrade naturally.

IBJI Sponsors First International World Triathlon Series in Chicago

2014 International World Triathlon Series

Illinois Bone & Joint Institute (IBJI) and the Health Performance Institute (HPI) played an important role in the 2014 International World Triathlon Series (WTS), which came to Chicago over the June 27-29 weekend. As a WTS partner and as the Official Orthopaedic and Physical Therapy Provider for this elite endurance event, IBJI and HPI provided sponsorship and on-site medical and therapeutic care.

The Chicago series is one of eight international WTS races being held in 2014 and the only U.S. stop for this competitive event. WTS Chicago drew elite and amateur athletes, representing 31 countries and 49 states. Dr. Andrew Hunt of IBJI-Glenview served as the medical director, overseeing the safety and well-being of more than 4,000 competitors that weekend.

IBJI and HPI volunteers were also on hand to staff the post-race recovery area. Triathletes filled the tent to take advantage of the range of complimentary services. Offering relief in the form of massage therapy, manual therapy and Mighty Body Band workouts, more than 20 expert clinicians helped racers recover from the grueling swim, cycle and run course completed in extremely high temperatures that weekend.

“The WTS team hosted a world class event and IBJI was honored to be involved,” said Matt Repa of HPI. “It was the perfect fit for IBJI and HPI professionals because both organizations are committed to delivering the highest caliber of specialty orthopaedic care and to helping athletes of all levels perform at their personal best,” said Repa.

Feet Are Getting Bigger, and Many People Wear Shoes That Don't Fit Right

When was the last time you had your foot measured to check your shoe size?

If the answer is more than a year ago, there is a good chance your shoes are causing you some kind of pain, from pinched toes to unsightly calluses. Foot shape and size can change in small but meaningful ways throughout adulthood, yet time-starved shoppers increasingly order shoes online and forgo proper sizing by a trained salesperson.

No matter how big or small your feet, your shoes could be hurting them—or even causing permanent harm. In a U.K study, involving 2,000 adults, more than a third of men and nearly half of women admitted buying shoes that didn't fit properly. Shoes with a narrow "toe box," the industry term for the front part of the shoe, can push the big toe in and create or accelerate a bunion, says Steven L. Haddad, an IBJI-Glenview orthopedic surgeon and president of the American Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Society. It can also constrict the toes, resulting in what are known as "hammertoe deformities."

"It's like when your mom said, 'Don't make that face, it will stay that way,' " he says. "It does actually stay that way when you put so much pressure on the toe over a long period of time."

Encompass Golf Tournament in Glenview

Illinois Bone & Joint Institute volunteers were out in full force from June 19 through June 22 for the Encompass Golf Tournament. The tournament brought some of the most recognized names in golf like Hale Irwin and Nick Price to North Shore Country Club in Glenview, along with local celebrities including Brian Urlacher and Toni Kukoc.

As the sponsor of the volunteer tent, IBJI welcomed more than 700 golf-loving volunteers and distributed first aid kits, golf ball markers and other giveaways. Volunteers had the chance to meet IBJI staff, ask questions, and help themselves to information about IBJI’s sport medicine expertise, diagnostic imaging, rehabilitation services, and OrthoAccess walk-in clinics for immediate orthopaedic care.

Aaron Sangha, Amy Cassman, Amy Illarde, Brittany Washburn, Padraic Donahue and Viviana Lopez were among those working the IBJI tent. “The tournament was a great opportunity to interact with community members,” said Aaron Sangha. “There was a lot of ‘IBJI love’ from former patients who were there. One volunteer told us that it’s thanks to two new IBJI knees and an IBJI hip that he can play golf again!”
