First of all you should undergo an MRI and find out what was done at arthroscopy; if it’s really an arthrosis of 1 degree, hyaluronic acid injections are possible and physiotherapy is not required. Anyway, you are always welcome to consultation for thorough examination. ( read more )

My mom suffers from gonarthrosis for the past three years. Despite treatment by injections the pain is still present. MRI revealed a meniscal tear in the posterior horn, the presence of small bony osteophytes on the patella, a small amount of fluid in the joint cavity (signs of exudative synovitis were detected) joint space is asymmetrically narrowed in the medial segment. The pain is ongoing but the knee remains flexible. Tell me, please, whether the surgery is contraindicated for meniscal tear in case of arthrosis? Is it possible to do an arthroscopic surgery on the meniscus in our case or it should be «major» surgery? And what would you advice concerning knee replacement for the patient in the age of 57? What is the life time of the artificial joint? ( hide )

It is necessary to make an X-ray of the knee in direct projection in standing position. If it turns out that there is no medial cartilage in the medial area, then the knee replacement is the only solution. The age of 57 is normal for the prosthetics. Modern artificial knee joint (when properly placed of course) will serve for a lifetime. You can make an appointment via phone ( read more )

Dr Sharin has been awesome in getting me back on my feet a surgery. He is super knowledgeable (obviously). I have learned a few things about my tendons muscles. Gold star to him!

I have always had a good experience at EMC and have found the staff and doctors to be knowledgeable + professional.  For the last 4 months I have been treated by Dr. Enikeev in the PT department and he has helped me immensely in my recovery after shoulder surgery.
