His most recent tweets feature the Arthroscopy Association of North America’s (AANA) Annual Meeting in Denver, Colorado. One of Dr. Marx’s talks focused on surgical decision-making and technique for multi-ligament knee injuries, specifically technical tips for medial ligament surgery and posterolateral corner and lateral ligament reconstruction in the multi-ligament injured knee. The panel also consisted of Drs. James Stannard, Andy Williams, Greg Fanelli, and Bruce Levy. In addition, the talk featured some of Dr. Marx’s most complex knee ligament cases.
Also included on Dr. Marx’s Twitter page are recent New York Times pieces. One is an article by his patient Jan Hoffman who detailed her experience staying awake for her knee operation by Dr. Marx (her choice, most patients prefer to be sedated). There is also a link to the article “After Knee or Hip Replacement, No Place Like Home”, which discusses the benefits of outpatient rehab.
This week, Dr. Marx spoke at the International Society of Arthroscopy, Knee Surgery (#ISAKOS) and Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Congress in Shanghai, China. Tune in to his Twitter for the latest details about the conference!
