Chicago, IL, August 13, 2018 — U. S. News & World Report released its 2018-2019 Best Hospitals National Ranking and the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Rush University Medical Center (RUMC), consisting of Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush (MOR) physicians, moved from the fifth to the fourth best orthopedic program in the nation. The report also continues to honor RUMC/MOR as the highest ranked orthopedic program in Illinois.
The patient is a 24-year-old woman who presented to the initial treating physician with a complex history of patellofemoral symptoms in the left knee beginning in 2011. At that time, she was playing softball with a Division 1 scholarship and was experiencing repeated patellar instability events with at least one event being a traumatic dislocation that required reduction in the ED. At that time, she underwent an isolated tibial tubercle osteotomy for treatment of her patellar instability. She continued to experience pain and patellar instability, which led her to seek further treatment in April 2014.
Comments from Adam B. Yanke, MD, PhD, in this Patellofemoral Update emphasized the importance of proper placement and tensioning of medial patellofemoral ligament grafts to limit the patient’s risk of developing knee arthrofibrosis or trochlear chondral changes.
