The Athletes Shoulder, Leading Edge Surgical Repair 

For UW Medicine physician Dr. Winston Warme, it's the time he spends in the lab that truly makes a difference to his patients. Warme develops innovative new surgical procedures to help his patients heal quickly and with enough mobility to continue their active lifestyles after surgery. Follow along as Dr. Warme, an orthopaedic surgeon at UW Medical Center's Bone and Joint Surgery Center, uses new techniques to help two very active athletes with broken collarbones get back in the game.

Treating Meniscus Tears

It's estimated that knee injuries account for one-third of all medical visits in the United States. Physicians with the University of Washington Medical Center work to correctly diagnose and individually treat patients with a wide array of knee injuries, including torn ligaments, runner's knee and meniscus tears. After telemark skier Andrew Etringer heard a telltale "pop" in his knee, he visited sports medicine specialist, Dr. Brian J. Krabak. A brace and strengthening exercises were the right course of action for Andrew's bruised meniscus. Competitive tennis player Adam Rogers needed surgery to treat the acute meniscus tear in his knee. Dr. John "Trey" Green performed arthroscopic surgery to ensure Adam would be able to keep his active lifestyle, and physical therapist Dr. Susanne Michaud helped Adam regain mobility and return to the tennis court.
