A MESSAGE FROM THE SURGEON-IN-CHIEF Thomas P. Sculco, MD As I reflect on the 2008–2009 academic year, I am pleased to report that the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery has made important advances on a number of fronts. Progress in our patient care, research, and educational efforts is the result of superb teamwork among the physicians, scientists, and many health professionals who serve the patients of Hospital for Special Surgery. It is also the product of an intellectual environment that fosters individual initiative, collaborative relationships, and a noticeable esprit de corps.

As a specialty institution with a tremendous orthopaedic patient volume—over 22,600 surgical procedures and more than 93,000 patient visits to the Department’s 12 orthopaedic surgery services in 2008—Hospital for Special Surgery affords us the opportunity to focus on all aspects of care of the musculoskeletal patient and to be innovative in our approach to research —from ideas that are pursued in the laboratory, which inform new treatments, to the clinical research that allows us to evaluate conventional surgeries and alternative procedures to achieve maximal outcomes. The magnitude of our caseload also provides our residents and fellows with outstanding training and experience in a diverse range of orthopaedic procedures.

IMPROVING CARE OF PATIENTS

In 2008, the Hospital’s patient volume grew by 13 percent, and the quality and end result of our care as documented by benchmarks and outcome measures continued to be outstanding. To be able to maintain quality while accommodating this significant increase in cases in our new OR facilities is an important accomplishment. During the past year, the Hospital restructured its quality process, enabling us to be more responsive to identifying trends in patient care and service, and to be able to more quickly implement programs to improve performance. Our rates for infection, pulmonary emboli, deep vein thrombosis, myocardial infarctions, and other measures of safety and quality are monitored very carefully. In 2008, the Hospital’s overall surgical site infection rate was reduced from 0.35 percent to 0.26 percent compared to a national rate of more than 2 percent; overall pulmonary embolus rate decreased from 0.48 percent to 0.25 percent; and overall deep vein thrombosis rate showed a reduction from 0.96 percent to 0.43 percent. We continue to work on reducing our infection rate to an absolute minimum, and our best practices in infection control have positioned us as a hospital that is likely to have the lowest infection rate for orthopaedics in the world. In addition, through the Hospital’s Center for Musculoskeletal Perioperative


2008 Surgical Volume

Medicine, our orthopaedic surgery patients—many of whom present with complex comorbidities—are screened by our rheumatologists and internists prior to surgery, helping to ensure the best possible outcomes. We were pleased to welcome Michael J. Klein, MD, as the Director of Laboratory Medicine and Pathologist-in-Chief. Dr. Klein, who is internationally renowned for his work in the surgical pathology of bone and joint diseases, succeeds Peter G. Bullough, MD, who retired as Director and Chief after 40 years of service. Dr. Klein comes to us from the University of Alabama, where he was the Director of Surgical Pathology. At Special Surgery, technology is playing an increasingly important role in the provision of high-quality care. With the installation of CliniCIS in mid-2007, many benefits accrued to clinical practice in 2008 from the availability of electronic patient orders, test results, medication alerts, and chart documentation. A Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) is now accessible in our ORs and physician offices, and a new state-of-the-art instrument tracking system has been implemented in central sterile supply. We were very pleased to once again be named the top hospital in the nation in orthopaedics by U.S.News & World Report in its 2008 “America’s Best Hospitals” issue. Hospital for Special Surgery also ranked fourth in the nation for rheumatology. For the 18th

consecutive year, the Hospital has been top ranked in the Northeast for orthopaedics and rheumatology. The Hospital also sustained its first place position in New York State for Joint Replacement Surgery and received the Health Grades Joint Replacement Excellence Award. These honors are a testament to the expertise of our physicians and health professionals and a dedication to continually advance the care we can provide to patients. RESTRUCTURING RESEARCH FOR CLINICAL RESULTS

At the core of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery is a commitment to pursuing basic, translational, and clinical research. Our scientists understand the problems that arise in the clinical arena and our clinicians are adept in scientific investigation. Their collaborations enable us to translate discoveries much more rapidly and efficiently into improvements in patient care. In an era in which the National Institutes of Health (NIH) had less funding to provide for research, HSS increased its federal grant portfolio by 14.6 percent over 2007, with awards totaling $22.4 million. Total active awards for 2008 totaled $32.7 million, an increase of 14.2 percent or $4.1 million over the previous year. For the past two years, the Hospital has been moving forward with an ambitious plan to integrate its basic, translational, and clinical research efforts to allow us to maintain scientific excellence into the

future. Our objective is to create a platform for insuring the translation of basic science findings to patient care. To accomplish this, we have created an interdisciplinary model for supporting the physician-scientist career path at Special Surgery, thus providing a critical link for transforming clinical observations into testable research hypotheses and translating research findings into medical advances. Among our interdisciplinary translational research programs is the Osteolysis Translational Center, which is designed both to increase our understanding of osteolysis and identify candidate targets for therapeutic intervention. An osteolysis tissue repository and clinical data registry has been developed that will help elucidate the risk factors and molecular markers for osteolysis and lead to the development of diagnostic tools and treatments for osteolysis. Another translational research team is addressing bone structure and function, with a particular interest in bone healing, including fracture repair, response to implants, spine fusion, and defect healing. Recently, the Hospital created a major research program aimed at osteoarthritis. The Osteoarthritis (OA) Initiative is an integrated basic, translational, and clinical research program that will concentrate on identifying risk factors for OA, prevention or reduction of inflammation at the onset of the disease, medical intervention to slow its progression, and surgical solutions when other means have been exhausted. In addition to building a translational program, we have created a core facility for epidemiology and biostatistics that

is providing clinical trial study design consultation and assistance with questionnaire and database development. This effort is part of our Musculoskeletal Repair and Regeneration Core Center, funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which is dedicated to providing services to further support the coordinated efforts of clinicians, scientists, and engineers. The Research Division was successful in obtaining two NIH Shared Instrumentation Grant awards, allowing the purchase of a musculoskeletal imaging microcomputed tomography (microCT) scanner and a high resolution confocal microscope. The microCT scanner provides a resolution of less than 40 microns, which provides visualization, measurement, and quantification of the structure of bone and expands our ability to determine the geometry, architecture, and material properties of musculoskeletal tissue. The confocal microscope provides high resolution optical imaging that improves our ability to study multiple cellular and in vivo processes. I am pleased to announce that funding has been completed for the Richard S. Laskin, MD Chair in Musculoskeletal Education, which honors the memory of Dr. Laskin, a valued member of the HSS staff for 17 years who passed away early in 2008. The Chair supports two areas of particular interest to Dr. Laskin: the Hospital’s Arthroplasty Registry and the HSS Journal. The Arthroplasty Registry—a component of the Center for Education and Research on Therapeutics—records and tracks detailed information about the thousands of joint replacement surgeries that our orthopaedic


surgeons perform each year. Funded by a multi-year grant from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, CERT is a collaborative effort with Weill Cornell Medical College to address questions regarding clinical outcome measurements, including pain and activity level, variations, and economic impacts of total joint surgeries. Patients will continue to be registered throughout the five-year grant, with an expected enrollment of 20,000 patients. This will make the registry one of the largest joint replacement registries in the world. The Arthroplasty Registry is one of more than 25 patient registries established by the Hospital, uniquely positioning us to conduct clinical research while evaluating how best to apply the most recent innovations in orthopaedics and rheumatology. The HSS Journal: The Musculoskeletal Journal of Hospital for Special Surgery, has just printed its eighth issue. This peer-reviewed publication, which was launched in 2005, disseminates pacesetting bone and joint research studies, clinical pathways, and state-of-the-art techniques to the broader musculoskele-

tal community. Charles N. Cornell, MD, Clinical Director of Orthopaedic Surgery at HSS, was named Editor-inChief in 2008 following the death of Richard L. Laskin, MD, founding Editor. In 2008, the HSS Journal was accepted into PubMed Central (PMC), a digital archive of biomedical and life sciences journals maintained by the National Institutes of Health, a precursor to full PubMed indexing. In 2005, Jo A. Hannafin, MD, PhD, Orthopaedic Research Director, and Chisa Hidaka, MD, Assistant Scientist, created a formal mentorship program with the goal of attracting the best and brightest medical students to clinical orthopaedics and orthopaedics research early in their medical training with the hopes that they will become the next leaders in the field. Students from Weill Cornell Medical College, Dartmouth University, Pennsylvania State University, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Columbia University, George Washington University, and University of Michigan, to name a few, have taken part in the program. Of the students who were in the first

Outreach Overseas Members of the HSS community are involved in volunteer projects serving areas with limited access to medical care and working to raise the level of musculoskeletal care across the globe. Among them are Oheneba Boachie-Adjei, MD, who has traveled to Ghana and throughout West Africa since 1998, when he established F.O.C.O.S.—The Foundation of Orthopedics and Complex Spine. In June 2008, Frank A. Cordasco, MD, went to Ghana to perform various orthopaedic procedures, including total knee replacement on a woman with long-standing arthritis (photo below). Dr. Cordasco (center) was assisted by an orthopaedic resident (left) and scrub nurse (far right) from Ghana, and Panagiotis Koulouvaris, MD (foreground, left), a former HSS fellow. “It was an afternoon case,” says Dr. Cordasco. “The water had run out. We scrubbed with bottled water, and at one point we lost power during a thunder storm before the generators kicked in.”

Dr. Boachie (far left), accompanied by his scoliosis fellow, Satyajit Marawar, MBBS (middle row, sixth from left), and a volunteer team of HSS physicians, nurses and physical therapists, has just returned from his 25th trip to West Africa. In the past decade, volunteer teams have evaluated thousands of patients from different parts of Africa and performed hundreds of corrective orthopaedic procedures in Ghana. 5


program and have now finished medical school, two have been accepted into orthopaedic residency programs, one is pursuing a year of research at HSS and then will be applying for an orthopaedic residency, and one student was stimulated to pursue an interest in bone tissue engineering. EDUCATION ENDEAVORS

Our orthopaedic residency and fellowship programs continue to be highly competitive. This June, eight orthopaedic residents and 36 orthopaedic surgery fellows were recognized at the Hospital’s 121st graduation ceremonies. In July, we welcomed eight new orthopaedic residents from a pool of more than 500 outstanding applicants. All eight positions were filled with talented and diverse candidates coming from the prestigious medical schools of Brown, Case Western Reserve, Columbia University, Georgetown, Harvard, New York University, Vanderbilt, and Weill Cornell. We continue to expand our international educational initiatives. Under the leadership of Eduardo A. Salvati, MD, and Alejandro Gonzalez Della Valle, MD, and in collaboration with the Hospital’s International Learning and Training Center, we hosted an educational

program on reconstructive surgery featuring presentations on ACL reconstruction with bone tendon bone autograft and shoulder arthroscopic anterior stabilization for 120 orthopaedic surgeons from Spain. The program included two live surgeries transmitted from the OR—a total hip replacement and a knee replacement with computer navigation. In 2006, we founded the International Society of Orthopaedic Centers (ISOC) to facilitate the exchange of ideas and best practices to affect improvement in orthopaedic care on a global scale. Member institutions are specialty orthopaedic hospitals or large orthopaedic departments within a hospital, which perform more than 5,000 total orthopaedic procedures per year and have an orthopaedic staff of more than 20 surgeons who conduct research and training. In October 2008, the ISOC held its second meeting at the Schulthess Klinik in Zurich. During this meeting, members developed a consensus paper on challenges facing us in orthopaedic care and initiated four task forces: Education/Fellowship; Outcome/Clinical Studies/Registries; Implant Retrieval; and Information Exchange/Website.

A Global Alliance The second meeting of the International Society of Orthopaedic Centers—a collaborative group made up of 14 organizations in 11 countries—took place in Zurich, Switzerland in October 2008. ISOC members hail from Belgium, Chile, China, Germany, Italy, Mexico, The Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The third ISOC meeting is planned to take place at Istituto Ortopedico Rizzoli in Bologna, Italy in spring 2010.

INFLUENCING INNOVATION HSS surgeons, in collaboration with the Hospital’s biomechanical engineers, were among the earliest developers of prosthetic implants, creating joint replacements for the hip, knee, ankle, shoulder, elbow and wrist, as well as devices for enhancing spine fusion and improving spinal stabilization. One-third of all artificial joints manufactured worldwide are derived from designs created here. We continue to improve upon surgical techniques and implant technology to offer patients the greatest opportunity to return to normal function and the highest probability for long-term success of prosthetic joints. We also have been involved in the development of novel imaging protocols, the design of revolutionary fiber optic probes for distinguishing healthy and diseased cartilage during surgery, and computer modelling to solve biomechanical problems in the knee, ankle, and shoulder joints. In the 2008-2009 Annual Report of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, we highlight our more recent bench-to-bedside investigations, collaborations, and clinical advances, which are leading to improvements in the health and mobility of patients with musculoskeletal conditions the world over.

In the four years since its inception, the Adult Limb Lengthening and Deformity Service has experienced substantial growth in clinical volume and research activity. Internationally recognized for its clinical achievements and research and educational initiatives, the Adult Limb Lengthening Service continues to advance innovative approaches to address complex limb deformities resulting from trauma, congenital conditions, or musculoskeletal diseases. In 2008-2009, we explored new biological approaches to limb lengthening using adjuvant treatments to improve and hasten bone healing, which is essential to limb lengthening procedures. Our surgeons have seen positive results with percutaneously injecting concentrated stem cells from a patient’s bone marrow directly into new bone growth to stimulate the healing process time by as much as 25 percent with great benefit and low morbidity. The more quickly the bone heals, the earlier the external fixator frames can be removed and the patient can resume full weight bearing. We continue to collaborate with the Foot and Ankle Service in ankle distraction procedures, the most conservative option for preserving the joint. During surgery, a hinged external fixator designed and developed by our surgeons is applied across the ankle and the arthritic joint is pulled apart. Our

surgeons are using both bone marrow stem cells as well as platelet derived growth factor isolated from a person’s peripheral blood—another biological agent—which are injected into the

joint to stimulate cartilage regeneration in the distracted joint. We recently published very positive outcomes in Foot & Ankle International. The LATN (lengthening and then nailing) and LAP (lengthening and then plating) hybrid techniques, procedures developed at Hospital for Special Surgery, incorporate staging with external fixation to lengthen the bone over time, followed by the insertion of an internal fixation device such as a rod or plate to complete the process without the need for an outside fixator. The technique has proven to be very successful and is currently being employed by surgeons around the country. Working with the Metabolic Bone Disease/Musculoskeletal Oncology Service, our surgeons are pursuing research that examines two stem cell concentration systems to determine which one produces the highest number of bone forming units. Other research underway includes computer navigation and fixator-assisted femoral osteotomy for correction of malunion after periprosthetic femur fracture, and tibial deformity correction with the IlizarovTaylor spatial frame.

In 2008, the Adult Reconstruction and Joint Replacement Division—comprised of the Hip Service, Knee Service, and Surgical Arthritis Service—performed more than 7,000 surgeries, predominately hip and knee replacements, hip and knee revisions, and hip resurfacing. In 2009, the Division held its second annual research retreat with the goal of organizing its active research programs into major thematic groups. The retreat included representatives from the Department of Biomechanics and the Research Division, and physicians from the Hip, Knee, and Surgical Arthritis Services. Participants identified areas of common research interest and explored research collaborations that would achieve the greatest impact and results. Projects currently underway include: Osteoarthritis Initiative The OA Initiative is an unprecedented collaboration of our clinicians, basic scientists, and clinical researchers, undertaken to examine factors associated with the development of osteoarthritis and potential interventions to prevent this degenerative joint disease. Perioperative Issues Our clinicians are exploring patient care issues that include the optimal way to reduce the risk of blood clots following total joint replacement surgery, medications and implants used, and improving ways to rapidly mobilize patients for a safe discharge. Bone Restoration Researchers are studying ways to minimize bone loss around implants and to develop restorative techniques using new proteincoated implants, as well as systemic drug therapies, including parathyroid hormone and other agents. In the Hospital’s Osteolysis Laboratory, clinician-scientists

continue research to understand the body’s response to artificial joints, and the mechanism triggering the development of particulates, such as the bits of polymers, ceramic, and metal that wear off implants over time. Physicians are seeking answers as to why in some patients that process initiates an extremely aggressive reaction resulting in bone loss, yet in other patients, there is no reaction. The goal is to identify patients who might be at risk for these responses and determine how to modify that reaction by using a biologic agent. Registries and Outcomes The Hospital’s Arthroplasty Registry, which is a comprehensive database that records and tracks detailed information about the thousands of joint replacement surgeries that take place at the Hospital each year, is expected to ultimately become one of the largest joint replacement registries in the world. In addition to storing information about perioperative health status, implant types, and patient demographics, the registry tracks a variety of clinical outcome measurements over time, including pain and activity level. By following the functioning of joint replacement patients over long periods, our surgeons hope to determine which surgical practices and implant models are most effective. The Adult Reconstruction and Joint Replacement Division is facilitating the Center for Education and Research on Therapeutics (CERT) – a multi-year grant from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality that is dedicated to addressing questions regarding outcomes, variations, and economic impacts of total joint surgeries. In addition to looking at trends for complications, CERT has been expanded to examine issues such as patient expectations and factors affecting

outcomes in patients who have had hip, knee, or shoulder replacements at Hospital for Special Surgery. The Division’s comprehensive Hip and Knee Replacement Registry continues to collect data to address questions of performance, the interplay of perioperative variables and medical co-morbidities, as well as the functional outcomes of joint replacement, hip replacement, knee replacement, and how patients respond to different bearings, materials, implants, and surgical approaches. HIP SERVICE Hospital for Special Surgery is one of the largest centers for hip problems in the country. In 2008, the Hip Service continued to experience remarkable growth, performing an unprecedented number of surgeries—including primary and revision replacements, hip resurfacing, and arthroscopic procedures. Our surgeons, collaborating with biologists and bioengineers, were among the earliest developers of prosthetic implants. They continue to improve upon surgical techniques and implant technology to offer patients the greatest opportunity to return to normal function and the highest probability for long-term success of the prosthetic hip. In addition, our surgeons continue to develop new procedures, including minimally invasive hip arthroscopy, for patients who have hip conditions that do not require a total hip replacement.

In 2008, the Hip Service, in collaboration with the Sports Medicine and Shoulder Service, embarked on the establishment of the Center for Hip Pain and Preservation, an interdisciplinary center that involves

Douglas E. Padgett, MD Chief , Hip Service

both adult reconstruction and sports medicine surgeons. The Center will seek to learn more about the interplay between how the joint moves in its natural environment and the abnormalities that initiate the cascading effect that results in loss of cartilage and the development of osteoarthritis. The Center will also provide a unique opportunity to follow a younger patient population and enroll these patients in a hip preservation registry to determine if interventions done earlier in life impact and influence whether or not patients will later develop degenerative hip problems. Information recorded will include physical data and morphological data, and the shape and orientation of the hip joint. Newer novel imaging techniques will help our physicians understand not only the quantity of cartilage, but also the quality of the cartilage, and in time, we hope to answer what impact that has on a patient’s hip condition years later. The Hip and Knee Registry continues to support a number of clinical trials underway. Recent studies have reported on results of the use of ceramic hip replacements, as well as the Service’s Fast Track program, which facilitates a quicker discharge from the Hospital.

KNEE SERVICE The Hospital’s Knee Service performs approximately 2,500 knee replacements each year and has helped to advance standard-setting developments in knee implants and knee replacement surgery. The Knee Service has been involved in the evaluation of the partial or unicompartmental knee replacement, which may promote faster recovery by removing and replacing only the most damaged areas of the knee. Our surgeons continue to explore who the best candidates are to benefit from this technology and approach, and why some benefit from partial knee replacement and others do not. Our surgeons also continue to investigate less invasive ways to perform knee replacement and help design and evaluate newer implants that allow for higher levels of function. Recent research looked at tibial post wear in posteriorstabilized knee replacements and venous thromboembolic disease after total hip and knee arthroplasty. Knee Service surgeons continue to work with the Hospital’s Department of Biomechanics conducting assessments of various materials and designs in knee replacement based on analysis of the plastic posts on hundreds of specimens from the implant retrieval archive—the largest in the world— which has provided opportunities for implant design changes.

They have also evaluated newer ceramic surfaces in knee replacement, showing they may improve the performance of the implant system with lower wear rates of the plastic and less scratching of the femur. Working with an industry partner, the Knee Service and the Department of Biomechanics are participating in the development of the newest design of knee replacement incorporating information for improvements derived from clinical and implant retrieval data. The new design will facilitate implantation, result in less wear of the plastic post, and improve function. Our orthopaedic surgeons are also beginning to use computer-designed patient specific instruments in surgery. Utilizing pre-operative MRI and long x-ray images, we are able to develop a computerized plan of the surgery and design instrumentation that is custommade for that patient with precise sizing and more accurate alignment of the implant. The surgery can also be done more efficiently and is potentially more accurate. The Knee Service, in collaboration with the Sports Medicine and Shoulder Service, has established a joint educational program for fellows to optimize their unicompartmental knee replacement research effort.

SURGICAL ARTHRITIS SERVICE The Surgical Arthritis Service is a multidisciplinary program for the treatment of patients with severe inflammatory arthritis. It is one of the few programs in the country where orthopaedic surgeons and rheumatologists together provide comprehensive care for rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune diseases, including juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, and Paget’s disease. Patients benefit from the interdisciplinary approach taken by the Service’s physicians and surgeons, who work with a dedicated team of medical and orthopaedic residents and fellows, nurses, physical and occupational therapists, and social workers. In 2008, the Surgical Arthritis Service spearheaded efforts in joint registries in order to track implant performance and patient satisfaction, and to critically analyze the impact of the surgeries performed. Our physicians also continue to study surface replacements in the hip to analyze their durability and longevity. Our surgeons constantly seek to improve minimally invasive techniques, as well as develop better pathways for patients regarding pain management, faster discharge, and quicker recovery following hip, knee, and unicompartmental procedures. We are also working

on the kinematics of elbow replacements and finite element analysis with the ultimate goal of designing an enhanced elbow replacement. This process involves studying implants that have failed and learning why they have failed, as well as examining those implants that have succeeded. Other research focuses on studying implant fixation and exploring more novel articulations; exploring computerassisted navigation methods for more accurately performing joint replacements; reducing blood loss after knee replacement using a fibrin gel; and studying a patient’s blood count before surgery to determine how much blood might be needed during surgery. Results have shown that if a patient’s hemoglobin is over 12.5 the likelihood of needing a transfusion is 3 percent, thereby eliminating the need for autologous blood donations in patients with this level. In addition, we are designing implants specifically for children and adolescents with specific problems including hemophilia and juvenile RA. Currently, our surgeons must rely on adult or custom implants for children. Our goal is to design better implants specifically for children who have growth patterns and bone alignments that are unlike those of adults.

The Foot and Ankle Service provides expert treatment for the broad range of foot and ankle conditions that can occur at any stage of life, from non-operative conditions to the most complex trauma and deformities. In addition to performing more than 2,000 surgeries in 2008, the Service’s team of eight orthopaedic surgeons pursue an active basic and clinical research program, seeking to improve techniques for treating the often challenging disorders of the foot and ankle. In collaboration with the Adult Limb Lengthening and Deformity Service, our foot and ankle surgeons are actively pursuing the treatment of significant arthritis and cartilage injuries in the ankle joint by injecting concentrated stem cells to determine the benefits of this technique. In another cartilage and bone repair technique, we continue to evaluate improved measures for the treatment of osteochondral lesions, including implanting bone and cartilage graft harvested from the knee into the ankle. Working with researchers in the Leon Root, MD, Motion Analysis Laboratory, our surgeons are studying the best way to achieve even pressure across the ankle joint by looking at the pressure patterns that defects create and how well they are resolved by implanting bone and cartilage plugs so that pressure is evenly distributed. Our surgeons are also studying whether fusion is an effective method for treating

severe trauma to the metatarsal tarsal joints in the midfoot. With pins or screws to hold the ligaments in place, the joint can still become arthritic and uncomfortable. Some patients do better when the joints are fused because they do not lose significant motion and the fusion creates a stable midfoot. Follow-up is ongoing to determine which approach is preferable. The Foot and Ankle Service continues to search for new treatments to stimulate bone growth and healing. Selected patients with poor bone healing have been given Forteo, a recombinant form of parathyroid hormone that stimulates the cells that build bone. Other agents— bone morphogenetic proteins that stimulate bone and cartilage growth or stem cells that are spun from peripheral blood—are delivered directly into the site during surgery. The Foot and Ankle Research Center, established in 2005, manages more then 18,000 patient records with scored and analyzed research data with up to 10year follow-up on all categories of surgical and nonsurgical patients. The database enables our surgeons to document details of surgical interventions during cartilage repair and to compare them with clinical outcomes. In 2008, our surgeons contributed to the design and development of a new total ankle replacement system, which is expected to be available by the end of 2009.


HAND AND UPPER EXTREMITY SERVICE 2008 Total Surgical Volume

 135 Inpatient Surgeries  1,674 Ambulatory Surgeries

The orthopaedic surgeons of the Hand and Upper Extremity Service are highly skilled in reconstruction of brachial plexus and peripheral nerve injuries, arthroscopic repair of complex ligament tears, fixation of pediatric and adult wrist, hand and forearm fractures, complex tumor resection, microsurgical repair of blood vessels, and reconstruction of complex elbow injuries. In collaboration with the Leon Root, MD, Motion Analysis Laboratory, our hand surgeons have developed novel motion analysis technology, for the first time, to map motion in the upper extremity with respect to the trunk. The team has developed a battery of tests to assess functional ability and that help to better define patient outcomes. Funding from the National Institutes of Health has enabled kinematic mapping of the “dart-thrower’s” wrist motion, a complex pattern of motion that is unique to humans and critical for efficient performance of many occupational and recreational tasks. By mapping the arc of a dart-thrower’s motion using markers affixed to the hand and the forearm, the parameters that allow wrist motion can be calculated. The data will provide important information so that surgical procedures can be tailored to better facilitate patient function. A two-year Research Grant from the Orthopedic Research and Education Foundation (OREF) is funding collaborative work

by a team from HSS and Brown University to correlate functional performance and motion following simulated and actual surgical reconstruction of the posttraumatic wrist. These advancements have sparked collaborations with industry on the development of an innovative wrist prosthesis designed to benefit active individuals with wrist arthritis. Hand surgeons are making great strides in resecting bone and soft tissue sarcomas of the hand, forearm, and elbow, preventing local recurrence and metastasis, and performing reconstruction to restore optimal function. They are also pioneering the concept of thumb salvage and have recently completed a study showing that reconstruction following resection can result in acceptable functional outcomes with a low risk of complication. Our surgeons are increasingly using percutaneous and other less invasive approaches to fix scaphoid and finger fractures, for arthroscopic release of tendons in tennis elbow, and for arthroscopy of the fingers, wrist, and elbow. The goal is to diminish the size of incisions and limit the amount of additional trauma so that recovery can be expedited. Our Service, which established the Hospital’s first patient registry, now has nearly 1,000 patients enrolled in nine different registries, including those for thumb arthritis, distal radial fractures, and brachial plexus injuries.

The Metabolic Bone Disease/Musculoskeletal Oncology Service brings together a consortium of basic scientists, clinical diagnosticians, and medical disciplines focused on the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis, Paget’s disease, and related bone disorders, and offers a comprehensive program for the treatment of bone and soft tissue tumors. In 2008, the Service helped launch the Medicine Orthopaedic Trauma Service (MOTS) in collaboration with our Orthopaedic Trauma Service and with NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center to provide comprehensive care for patients presenting with fragility fractures. The program aims to reduce medical and surgical complications and improve management of medical comorbidities. The Metabolic Bone Disease Service pursues a wide range of research activities with a common focus of preserving the quality of bone or enhancing bone healing. Studies include applications of existing drugs to new areas to develop alternative treatment methods for osteoporosis and other metabolic bone diseases. In particular, our clinicians are looking at the utility of anticatabolic drugs now used for treating stable osteoporosis for preventing bone loss in the setting of a new fracture or in circumstances where bone healing is needed. In collaboration with centers across the country and with industry, we are establishing a random-

ized trauma trial and a randomized spine fusion trial using selected agents, including teraparitide—currently the only agent that is readily available in the United States—to build bone, enhance bone volume and bone synthesis, and improve bone healing. The Metabolic Bone Disease Service is also working both with experimental models and in clinical trials using factors or pathways responsible for bone production to identify agents that block the chemicals responsible for interfering with these pathways—the next step towards developing enhanced bone production. Our physicians are also about to embark on a clinical trial investigating the use of a ceramic containing bone morphogenic protein injected directly into the hip, which is expected to increase bone mass by up to 30 percent at the site thereby decreasing hip fractures. The Seymour Cohn Metabolic Bone Registry collects and analyzes patient data sets to identify methods to prevent and repair fragility fractures. Some 230 participants have been enrolled to date, and seven families, each with three generations of family members with fragility fractures, have been indentified. These findings have led to the development of a pilot study to identify possible areas of the human genome that may contribute to decreased bone quality seen in some patients with multiple fractures.

The Orthopaedic Trauma Service cares for patients with complex orthopaedic trauma, both acute and subacute injuries, including the upper and lower extremities, pelvis, acetabulum and other bones and joints, isolated fractures/ dislocations, and poly-trauma. Additionally, our surgeons treat non-unions and mal-unions including cases requiring deformity correction. The Service continues its ongoing efforts in the treatment of fractures in the elderly, who present significant challenges not only in their medical status, but also in bone and soft tissue quality and ability to heal. Stabilizing a fracture and at the same time ensuring that the patient can ambulate in order to prevent the limb from becoming nonfunctional requires a better coordination of care among multi-specialties. To that end, we established the Medicine Orthopaedic Trauma Service (MOTS) in March 2008. MOTS is designed to ensure that geriatric patients, particularly those with hip fractures, receive quality care through the collaboration of the Department of Medicine at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center and the Orthopaedic Trauma Service. The goal is to operate on the patient within the first 24 hours to minimize the risk of “fracture disease,” as well as to identify and manage all other medical issues, comorbidities, postoperative

care, rehabilitation, and follow-up. To address fractures in the elderly, our surgeons are using the latest devices, including locking-plate and fixed-angle screw technologies, to improve fixation and durability of implants in poor or deformed bone. With locking technology, stability can be maintained while bone healing occurs. We are also exploring the use of synthetic or cadaveric bone, bone matrix, bone growth factors—including bone morphogenic protein—and hormonal treatment, such as parathyroid hormone, to enhance bone healing. The Orthopaedic Trauma Service is currently developing a comprehensive center for the evaluation and treatment of non-arthritic hip pain. The center will encompass clinical evaluation, nonoperative management, surgical treatment, and postoperative management. A major research emphasis has focused on fractures and a number of our studies are looking at historical controls of conventional surgery versus the more modern minimally invasive techniques. We are learning that perhaps the future of fracture care should be less invasive and not necessarily minimally invasive. The quality of the reduction, especially in the joint, is key. The ultimate goal must be perfect restoration of articular injuries both in the joint surface itself and then restoring the length, alignment, and rotation of the limb.

The Pediatric Orthopaedic Service provides focused expertise in the treatment of rare and common musculoskeletal disorders in infants, children and adolescents, including orthopaedic complications resulting from physical disabilities, traumatic injuries, and neuromuscular and acute musculoskeletal conditions. Areas of particular emphasis include limb length discrepancy, cerebral palsy, spinal deformity, hip dysplasia and toritcollis, and fracture management.

Our pediatric orthopaedic surgeons continue to explore the use of the vertical expandable prosthetic titanium rib (VEPTR), a relatively new device that has shown positive results in patients with early onset scoliosis. Growing rods are attached to the spine and affixed to vertebrae at the top and bottom and can be expanded over time using a mechanism that allows the lengthening to be performed in an outpatient surgery. The approach minimizes spinal deformity and allows lung development to occur to preserve a normal life span for the patient. VEPTR was developed initially for use in children with congenital spine deformities associated with rib and chest wall deformities, and today this minimally invasive approach is also used for both primary spine deformities, as well as primary chest wall deformities that require reconstruction.

In 2008-2009, the Service pursued an active research program that includes studies on measurement of bone density in the pediatric population; genetic and orthopaedic aspects of collagen disorders; and management of idiopathic scoliosis.

In other advanced techniques, our surgeons are utilizing growing inter-

natural, safe and gradual correction of limb alignment. Minimally invasive plates crossing the growth plate inhibit growth on one side of the growth plate to allow for self-correction of limb deformities and avoid the need for more invasive osteotomies.

In 2008, the Pediatric Orthopaedic Service established a Fracture and Injury Hotline—1-877-HSS-1KID—for referring physicians, offering 24-hour urgent and emergent care for all major high-energy trauma cases. Our staff coordinate patient transfers to either the Pediatric Ambulatory Care Center at Hospital for Special Surgery or the Pediatric Emergency Department at NewYorkPresbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, where our orthopaedic team retains admitting privileges. In 2008-2009, the Pediatric Orthopaedic Service continued to make significant progress in the design and planning for


SCOLIOSIS SERVICE

The Scoliosis Service has earned worldwide recognition for its work in the correction of complex pediatric and adult spinal deformities, including pediatric and adult scoliosis and kyphosis, neck and lower back disc herniations, spondylolisthesis, stenosis, and fractures. The Service has established clinical pathways to provide early and efficient discharge for patients undergoing deformity surgery. This process includes education for patients and clinical staff on perioperative care. Our surgeons are advancing the treatment of adult lumbar scoliosis with minimally invasive methods such as the extreme lateral technique, which obviates the need for a large anterior incision, minimizes disruption to surrounding tissues, and decreases the morbidity associated with open fusion approaches. Patients are shown to recover more quickly and with a shorter hospital stay. The Scoliosis Service continues to implement endoscopic procedures for thoracic deformities that allow access to the spine through the chest cavity. We are also advancing surgery for progressive early onset scoliosis with severe curvature using a modified and improved dual-rod technique that achieves correction through the implantation of growing rods, thereby avoiding major fusion surgery, which carries the risk of stunted growth. For the younger patient with early onset scoliosis, we have been employing the titanium rib cage device

for patients with severe congenital scoliosis rib cage deformity and thoracic insufficiency syndrome. The Scoliosis Service is now employing pedicle screw systems to treat thoracic adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. This type of internal fixation device provides three-dimensional correction of spine deformity and has eliminated the need to perform conventional procedures such as rib resection and thoracoplasty. With the pedicle screw constructs, surgeons not only correct the scoliosis, but derotate the rib cage and improve the rib hump leading to better rib cage performance. Hospital stays are reduced and patient recoveries are faster. Patients also do not experience problems with breathing, and our surgeons believe they will be able to return to full activities more quickly than with either the hybrid or the hook wire screw construct and thoracoplasty approach. The Scoliosis Service is an integral part of the Hospital’s Spine Care Institute, and has also contributed to the formation of the Integrated Spine Research Program. One of few scoliosis centers with a physician-scientist on staff, the Scoliosis Service is currently working to develop fusion models with biologics and tissue regeneration to better understand spine fusion in patients. In 2009, Dr. Oheneba Boachie-Adjei, Chief of Service, was named President of the Scoliosis Research Society.

The Spine Service provides expertise in the full range of cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine disorders, including degenerative conditions, spinal deformities, infections, tumors, and metabolic diseases.

Association based on two-year outcome studies of patients who had surgery, compared to those treated only with nonsurgical methods, showed significantly better improvement in their pain, function, and satisfaction.

A major initiative in 2008 was the further development of the Spine Care Institute, a multidisciplinary center of clinical excellence, research, and education in operative and non-operative spine care.

Other prospective randomized clinical trials have included non-fusion technologies, specifically in lumbar and cervical total disc replacement. This has resulted in the development of specific registries of patients who have undergone these procedures. In addition, the Spine Service is designing a clinical outcomes instrument to better assess patient disability secondary to spinal disease.

Progress continued on the formation of the Integrated Spine Research Program in which both the Spine Service and Scoliosis Service will collaborate on clinical trials and together build a clinician-scientist program dedicated to advancing spine research. The program seeks to improve understanding of the basic biological processes associated with spinal disorders and their associated pain syndromes, and to explore new methods and technologies for treatment. These include the use of an artificial disc and nucleus, and regenerative medicine techniques to reverse the process of disc degeneration. The Spine Service participates in a number of prospective randomized clinical trials, the most significant of which has been the NIH-funded Spine Patient Outcome Research Tool (SPORT) study, a multicenter randomized clinical trial of surgical and non-surgical approaches to the treatment of disc herniation, stenosis, and degenerative spondylolisthesis. Reports published in The New England Journal of Medicine and the Journal of the American Medical

Our physicians are also pursuing methods to enlist a patient’s own tissues to produce growth factors—either through platelet-enriched plasma or concentrated stem cells taken from bone marrow—to improve fusion. In collaboration with the Hospital’s Department of Biomechanics, the Spine Service has continued with research in orthobiologics specifically related to bone healing in animal fusion models. Our clinician-scientists have studied bone morphogenetic proteins, demineralized bone matrices, and betatricalcium phosphates. The Spine Service has also been involved with the Department of Biomechanics in a program for retrieval analysis of total disc replacement arthroplasties that have been explanted. Research in gene expression is also underway to understand the degenerative cascade that could lead to new methods of intervention.


SPORTS MEDICINE AND SHOULDER SERVICE

The Sports Medicine and Shoulder Service—one of the largest sports medicine programs in the country— provides a multispecialty, interdisciplinary approach to the care of school-aged, recreational, college, and professional athletes. In 2008, the members of the Service had approximately 60,000 patient visits and performed more than 7,600 surgical procedures. With this volume of cases, we have been able to acquire a tremendous amount of information on the outcomes of surgeries for sportsrelated injuries, which is being used to improve techniques. This effort is being further advanced with the recent establishment by the Service of patient registries in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) surgeries, cartilage injuries, and shoulder instability and rotator cuff injuries. During the last 15 years, members of the Sports Medicine and Shoulder Service have spent much time and effort on improving ACL reconstructions— particularly with regard to reproducing the normal functioning of the knee. In a subset of patients where the traditional approach did not result in a repaired knee that was as stable as a normal knee, our surgeons devised a solution that involves approaching the femur from the front of the knee, allowing the surgeon to control the positioning of the graft. Clinical and biomechanics studies are now ongoing to determine optimal femoral tunnel placement.

David W. Altchek, MD

The application of computer-assisted navigation to ACL reconstruction is also under investigation. Models of the ACL have been created to help understand kinematics in the normal and injured knee, in the ACL injured knee, and after various types of ACL reconstruction. The Service is also testing ACL reconstructions to determine which type of procedure best reproduces the intact normal knee, and ways to precisely determine the angle of the new graft. Our surgeons are also collaborating with the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine to better understand factors that affect outcomes after revision ACL reconstruction. In patients, particularly women, with patellar instability and multiple knee cap dislocations, our orthopaedic surgeons are now performing medial patella femoral ligament reconstruction, which has revolutionized care for these patients. To help address overuse syndromes, our clinicians have begun using platelet-rich plasma therapy—injecting the patient’s own platelet cells, which contain growth factors, into the tendon injury to rekindle a healing response. Research is an extremely productive component of the Sports Medicine and Shoulder Service. In 2008, the Service

reorganized its research effort to focus and pursue in-depth studies in knee ligament stability, shoulder stability, rotator cuff tendon healing, and articular cartilage repair. Its activities span the spectrum from biological studies and biomechanical perspectives to translational and clinical research. In the area of basic science research, the Service has an active collaboration with the Hospital’s Laboratory for Soft Tissue Research, where scientists are looking at the influence of trauma on the articular cartilage in the knee, with particular interest in factors that lead to the development of osteoarthritis. A number of basic science studies are underway looking at the biology of meniscus transplantation healing and working with novel synthetic materials for meniscus replacement. With the support of a $1.4 million, fouryear, National Institutes of Health (NIH) RO1 grant, researchers are also investigating cellular and molecular processes, including growth factors such as bone morphogenic protein, in ligament healing with particular attention to the affect of mechanical load on biology. An additional $1.1 million, three-year NIH RO1 grant, now nearing completion, has focused on investigations to determine how to stimulate ACL repair or regeneration at the cellular level. These projects seek to optimize ligament healing or accelerate repopulation of the ACL graft

with normal cells, permitting refinement of current ACL reconstruction techniques to promote recovery and determine a scientific basis for the design of postoperative rehabilitation. In addition, members of the Sports Medicine and Shoulder Service, in collaboration with the Department of Biomechanics, are investigating knee ligament mechanics and shoulder mechanics with a state-ofthe-art robotic system. In conjunction with the Hospital’s Leon Root, MD, Motion Analysis Laboratory, Service members are examining muscle function in patients with rotator cuff disease. Service members are also looking at how to facilitate recovery from rotator cuff repair at a basic science level, investigating the role that stem cells may play in regenerating rotator cuff muscles. The first phase of the stem cell study, which was conducted with colleagues at Colorado State University, has seen very promising results in experimental models. The goal is to bring that research into the patient population with a future expectation of injecting the damaged muscles with a patient’s own stem cells to facilitate the healing process. Our orthopaedic surgeons have been involved in a number of innovative improvements for shoulder replacement, and have developed the first bimodular total shoulder system available in the United States.

At Hospital for Special Surgery, insight provided by experienced and talented orthopaedic surgeons and scientists, and innovations in musculoskeletal medicine developed through their lead, have been the hallmarks of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery throughout its rich and dynamic history. The Hospital’s bench-tobedside collaborations continue to generate discoveries, technologies, and techniques that enhance the care that can be provided to patients with orthopaedic injuries and disorders the world over. The ingenuity and skills of our surgeons and scientists are applied to every type of orthopaedic procedure—from arthroplasty to complex trauma surgery; evidenced in the research setting—from biological investigations to clinical trials and major studies of outcomes; and incorporated in our residency and fellowship programs—from training in a bioskills laboratory to providing protected time to pursue research.
