Arthroscopic knee surgery is common, but is it warranted? Today we are joined by Sydney-based Orthopedic surgeon and researcher, Dr. Ian Harris.
Dr. Harris discusses the evidence-practice gap regarding the use of arthroscopic knee surgery and provides insight into how we can improve the system. We discuss one of Dr. Harris’ research papers – in which there was a strong recommendation AGAINST the use of arthroscopy in nearly all patients with degenerative knee disease.
