Dr. Gabriel Levi Featured on WGN's Living Healthy Chicago

 


Orthopedic Surgeon & Patient Interviewed for WGN Program

Illinois Masonic orthopedic surgeon Dr. Gabriel Levi and his patient Katie Carson were interviewed today for WGN’s program Living Healthy Chicago.

In 2011, Katie suffered a severe tibia and fibula break while playing soccer. When she saw that her leg was bent at nearly a 90-degree angle, she thought she would never walk again. She was brought to Illinois Masonic, where Dr. Levi inserted an intramedullary rod. Two days later, Katie was able to weight bear. Six months later, she was able to run a half marathon!

WGN interviewed both Katie and Dr. Levi at Illinois Masonic for the story. They also captured some B-roll footage of Katie running in the park outside the CAC! I’m including a few behind-the-scenes shots below.

Many thanks to Dr. Levi and Jequeatta for sharing this wonderful story with us! If you’d like to tune in, the segment, which will be part of a bone health show, will air on WGN on Sunday, Oct. 11, at 11:30 am.

Clinical utility of ultrasound guidance for intra-articular knee injections: a review

Intra-articular corticosteroid and hyaluronic acid injections provide short-term symptom amelioration for arthritic conditions involving structural damage or degenerative changes in the knee. Conventional palpation-guided anatomical injections frequently result in inaccurate needle placement into extra-articular tissue and adjacent structures.

Joint injections and aspirations are used to reduce joint pain and decrease inflammation. The efficacy of these injections is diminished when they are placed inadvertently in the wrong location or compartment. The purpose of this study was to determine whether the use of varying sites or imaging techniques affects the rate of accurate needle placement in aspiration and injection in the shoulder, elbow, and knee.
