Dr. Patney Leads West Florida Hip and Knee Forum

For Dr. Michael Patney continuing education is at the forefront of a successful orthopaedic practice. Dr. Patney of Coastal Orthopedic Associates recently served on the faculty at the West Florida Hip and Knee Forum in Tampa. Dr. Patney provided leadership at the highly interactive West Florida Hip and Knee Forum case-based and practical-approach conference attended by top physicians from around the state of Florida.

The West Florida Hip and Knee Forum explains that mobility-limiting osteoarthritis is a main cause of frequent knee and hip pain, experienced by one-fourth of all adults in the United States. Hip and knee surgeries are expected to rise by 673 percent by 2030. With that growth and increased activity for the aging population, it is key for orthopaedic surgeons to continue to update their skills and techniques, gain new research, and learn more about pain management and infection prevention.

Attendees of the Forum included orthopaedic surgeons interested in learning about the most up-to-date treatment and procedures for total hip and knee replacement. According to the symposium objectives, surgeons completing education were able to: understand new payment models; describe protocols, treatment options and evaluations for total joint replacement patients; explain the use of biologics in total joints and trauma; identify the particulars of performing outpatient joint surgery, and discuss related case presentations.

“Having interactive presentations and panel discussions provided surgeons the ability to share with the faculty,” said Dr. Patney. “Serving on the Forum allowed me to utilize helpful information to better serve our Coastal Orthopedic patients.”

Pfiedler Enterprises, accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education, coordinated the Forum with Dr. Patney and other leaders including grant funds from Stryker.

Dr. Patney currently serves as AQSA Champion for the University of Florida/Jacksonville, Medical Director of the Orthopedics Inpatient Unit for Shands Jacksonville, and Medical Director of Orthopedics for the Northside Specialty Care Center. He is licensed to practice Osteopathy in Pennsylvania and Florida, Dr. Patney has staff privileges at Orange Park Medical Center, St. Vincent’s Medical Center Southside and Memorial Hospital Jacksonville. He is a member of the: American Osteopathic Association; American Osteopathic Academy of Orthopaedics; American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons; Florida Osteopathic Medical Association; American College of Osteopathic Surgeons, and Duval County Medical Society. A husband and father of two, Dr. Patney also is a sought-after presenter, lecturer and instructor.

Treating Golf Injuries

newgolfimage

With excellent weather year round, the First Coast has thousands of golfers who take to the links every day. From junior golfers who are barely able to tote a bag to geriatric golfers who can shoot their age, golf’s hazards extend well beyond the bunker to thrown golf clubs and dangerous lightening strikes. Excluding injuries from an errant back-swing or feet dangling from a moving golf cart, lower back pain is the most common complaint among golfers followed by a sports injury to the elbow, wrist and shoulder.

Most golf injuries are believed to come from a lack of warm up, a misplaced swing that incorrectly strikes the ground or the repetition of poor swing mechanics. So, the best advice for golfers of all ages and skill levels is to decrease their chances of being injured by adopting a routine exercise program, stretching the right muscle groups prior to play and taking a few golf lessons from a professional. After all, most professional golfers have a swing coach, a sports trainer and spend much more time warming up prior to teeing it up.

The powerful rotation of the lead hip and twisting of lumbar spine can generate club head speeds of over 120 mph. This can put the back, wrist, elbow and shoulder in harm’s way for an overuse injury. Conversely, the exposure of walking or toting one’s own bag increases the risk of injury to the back, shoulder, ankle or knee. Although knee injuries are not as common to golf as some of the contact sports, once a golfer has a knee injury it is important to completely rehabilitate the injury to allow for a smooth transfer of weight from one side to the other.

As is the case with most sports injuries, overuse of a particular joint should be conservatively treated with rest, ice, compression and elevation. If problems persist, a physician can prescribe anti-inflammatory or pain medications for symptomatic relief. If you already suffer with a recurrent problem or would like to learn more about taking proactive steps to avoid a golf injury,  make an appointment online or call at (904) 269-1930. We can recommend a simple exercise program that will stretch and strengthen key muscles to reduce the risk of injury and increase your time on course.
