Dr. Anz lectured to a group of physicians, therapists, and athletic trainers from across the United States at the 32nd Annual Injuries in Baseball Course. The course is annually hosted by the American Sports Medicine Institute, chaired by Dr. James Andrews, and was held this year in Atlanta Georgia. The goal of the course is to educate physicians, therapists, and athletic trainers on injuries which are common within baseball as well as preventative, non-operative, and operative treatments.
Dr. Anz’s talk focused on the patellofemoral joint and included discussions on patellofemoral pain syndrome, patella instability, patellofemoral chondromalacia, and traumatic injuries of the patellofemoral joint. After a discussion on the standard of care for these injuries, Dr. Anz ended with a look of what is on the horizon for patellofemoral cartilage injuries.
