Dr. Mark Galland Discusses Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repair

Written by admin on August 12, 2013 – 11:18 am -

RALEIGH, N.C. – Dr. Mark Galland, M.D., a physician at Orthopaedic Specialists of North Carolina (www.orthonc.com), has announced the release of a podcast in which he discusses the differences between arthroscopic rotator cuff repair and traditional rotator cuff repair. In the podcast, Dr. Galland describes the size of incision that is required for arthroscopic rotator cuff repair as well as its advantages compared to traditional rotator cuff repair.

Traditionally, surgeons have performed open rotator cuff repair when a patient suffers from a tear that requires surgery. In this procedure, an incision is made over the outside of the shoulder, usually about 6-10 centimeters in length, and the muscle beneath the skin is separated to expose the rotator cuff, which is then inspected and repaired.

To prevent significant pain and leave a much smaller incision, orthopaedic surgeons have begun performing arthroscopic rotator cuff repair, which leaves a much smaller incision through the use of small instruments to perform the procedure.

QUOTES:
“Arthroscopic rotator cuff repair is performed through multiple small incisions, usually a centimeter in size,” said Galland. “It is an outpatient procedure, so patients can expect to return home to the comforts of their own surroundings and sleep in their own bed the very same day of the procedure.”

Dr. Mark Galland Discusses Injury Prevention Baseball For Amateur Athletes

Written by admin on February 21, 2013 – 8:08 am -

Dr. Mark Galland has announced the release of a podcast discussing prevention of common youth baseball injuries. In the podcast, Galland provides his expert opinion on some of the most common injuries associated with baseball: from little leaguer’s elbow to torn labrums and everything in between, and gives advice to parents, coaches and athletes on safety techniques for injury prevention.

“To prevent injury when playing baseball as a young athlete, the most important thing is to resist the temptation to achieve short term success at the expense of the long term goals of the athlete,” said Galland. “Too often I see that in the pressure to win we sacrifice the athlete, the baseball player or the pitcher that this child could be when he or she reach collegiate or professional levels.”
