This week on The Ortho Show we get technical. We are tackling the subject of anterior chronic patella subluxation and We’re joined by Dr Lonnie Paulos who guides us through how his approach to these patients has evolved over the years and how these learnings influence his practice today. Dr Paulos assesses each patient by considering all non-surgical remedies first and defining their suitability for both operative and non-operative treatment. He’s a wealth of knowledge and highly regarded in the field of sports medicine, we look forward to welcoming him back to the show in the near future.
