HIGH IMPACT PAPER: MacOrtho publishes in Nature Reviews

Published: March 11, 2016

We are happy to announce that Drs. Moin Khan, Femi Ayeni and Mohit Bhandari in collaboration with a international team published in the scientific journal Nature Reviews Rheumatology! The evidence based review provided new perspectives and understanding on the current state of surgery for femoroacetabular impingement syndrome.

“The evidence to date is by no means conclusive. Whether hip arthroscopy works, and for whom it works, remains a highly debated issue in our field,” says Bhandari, Professor of Orthopedics at McMaster’s Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine.

First author of the review, Dr. Moin Khan adds: “Newly graduating sports medicine focused surgeons want to use the latest evidence-based approaches to differentiate themselves. Good data is needed to help them decide what procedures work, and which ones don’t.” Khan is a Clinical Fellow of Orthopedic surgery at McMaster’s medical school.

To evaluate the surgery Drs. Femi Ayeni and Mohit Bhandari are conducting a clinical trial to carefully test the effect of major arthroscopic intervention against a simpler procedure for hip arthroscopy.

The publication has received significant media attention with over fifty national and international news outlets running the story including CHCH news, Science Daily and the McMaster Daily News.
