Hip and Knee Team Published in JBJS for Perioperative Pain Control Study

July 9, 2018

Columbia Orthopedics hip and knee team Jeffrey A. Geller, MD, Chief of Hip and Knee Reconstruction; H. John Cooper, MD; and Roshan P. Shah, MD, Director of Complex Adult Hip and Knee Reconstruction and Co-Director of Minimally Invasive Hip and Knee Replacement, were published in The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery (JBJS) for their article “Adductor Canal Block Compared with Periarticular Bupivacaine Injection for Total Knee Arthroplasty: A Prospective Randomized Trial.” This randomized controlled clinical trial of 150 patients compared the efficacy of adductor canal blocks (ACB) and periarticular anesthetic injections (PAI) for pain management in total knee arthroplasty. The research concluded that ACB alone is an inferior method for perioperative pain control but there was no significant differences in pain control between PAI alone and ACB+PAI.
