Arthritis In Athletes

Dr. Thomas San Giovanni, Orthopedic Surgeon with Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Institute says arthritis in athletes can occur. He also describes how physicians can help patients in order to recover their lifestyle after a fracture or a surgery and how biomechanics will be the best option in the future for those conditions. “Certain joints now can be replaced. We just have to understand the stresses that are upon them and also to be able to design implants that will be able to address that rather than to just say on there's no way possible," he says.
