    With my physiotherapy Robina practice i think i miss most is being personal with my clients. I am a social person and i love talking and sharing thoughts with my customers. This pandemic really changed our course of lives and i can't wait to get back to how it used to be.

    Apologies, it should be attached now. I understand it's very hard to judge off a picture but let me know if you see anything worth mentioning

    By this I mean that when the surgeon disturbs the underlying tissue to stimulate the cartilage it is also probable that osteoblasts (bone forming cells) are released. I think there have been some advances in the drilling techniques of the subchondral bone to minimise this. We see this in facet joint surgeries in the spine. Osteophytes make bone and respond to load. So as we would want to minimise bone formation I would take a slightly more conservative approach to the load bearing rehab in...

    Hi, Many thanks for your reply, it was extremely informative and provided me with a greater level of input on the issue than I ever expected I would receive on an online forum! I have attached a picture of the scope, it is probably not of the greatest quality but you can certainly see a considerable amount of osteochondral damage. One important aspect is it seems to be only a singular defect in the cartilage, there isn't multiple defects in different areas. I will admit though, and it...

    Hi everyone. I'm a final year physiotherapy student from India and just gave my final exams. I am interested to pursue masters in Canada but I came to know through sources that international students aren't accepted for masters courses in Canadian universities. I was wondering if any international student who has completed masters in Canada, gave the PCE exam and now working there could provide some advice or guidance. Thankyou. You can email me too : [email protected]

    Hi ItsmeJPaulC and thanks for your interesting post. If you have any images of the damaged area from the scope OR get some from this followup one please do add them to your post as it would be nice to see the area and size of the lesion in relation to what the surgeon suggests. I think AMIC surgery has been around for about 20 years but is only now starting to gain a little more widespread awareness. It's amazing how long new developments take to get out there and you'd be astounded at how in...

    Hi all, I am scheduled to undergo knee surgery in a few weeks to repair a substantial level of osteochondral (articular cartilage) damage in my knee. The cartilage in question is of the lateral femoral condyle and it involves a weight bearing part also. This injury happened to me approximately 14 months ago playing a contact sport. I initially underwent an arthroscopic procedure to repair meniscal damage, however the surgeon upon one month review stated that he was concerned about the...
