Dr. William Joseph Bose MD's Expert Contributions
Achievement of a good outcome after an orthopaedic procedure such as knee, hip or shoulder replacement, fracture repair, rotator cuff repair, or hip arthroscopy requires that the extremity moves immediately after surgery. We call this “early mobilization”. But, when the patient has pain,...
Many, many factors come together to obtain an excellent outcome for the patient after orthopedic surgery. Patient expectations and attitudes, and medical diseases all play a role. However, the skill of the surgeon also plays a significant role. Research has shown time and time again that if a...

99% of rib fractures heal without surgery and cause no long-term problems. Unless the lungs are punctured, generally people with rib fractures are not kept overnight in the hospital. The treatment is time and mild pain medication. Unfortunately, no brace or cast has been found an effective treatment, and in fact they cause complications like pneumonia. Encourage him to breath deep even though it may hurt, because it is the best way to avoid pneumonia. Hope it helps!! Dr. Bose READ MORE
Without seeing the X-rays, I can't give a definitive answer. However, we do surgery on broken hand bones when the bones are not aligned properly. The plate and screws will hold the bone aligned and still while the fracture heals. Hope it helps! Bill Bose READ MORE
Osteochondritis of the knee (called OCD) is when a small part of the bone dies and the underlying cartilage flakes off. The treatment is surgical. It can vary depending on the stage of the disease. Often, we will drill holes into the defect to stimulate blood flow and healing. More extensive procedures like grafting new bone into the lesion may be necessary. Hope it helps, Dr. Bose READ MORE
Usually not. Tennis elbow comes from forceful gripping. Gripping a tennis racket, hammer, weed trimmer, etc. Hope it helps! Dr. Bose READ MORE
There can be many many causes of shoulder pain. The most common cause however is something called impingement syndrome.

First, I'm sorry to hear about your back. Without knowing the particulars of your case, it would be difficult for me to answer your question. However, if the surgery is successful and you rehab properly, you could get back to playing. Whatever you do, don't rush it. Back surgery takes a long time to heal, but if you rush it, you may screw it up even more. Best of luck! Dr. Bose READ MORE
Lots of parents ask this question and most don't like the answer. He has an "overuse" injury. Try giving him Ibuprofen once or twice a day. Give him the dose on the bottle, or if he's over 100 lbs, give him 2 advil twice a day with food. However, the best way to decrease his pain or "tension" in his legs is to reduce his sports playing time per week. Hope it helps, Dr. Bose READ MORE

Yes, hip arthritis can cause pain and stiffness. Try taking 600 mg of advil with supper. I bet it helps. If not, see an Orthopaedic Doctor. READ MORE
Treatment begins with rest, meds and then Physical therapy once the pain improves. Epidural shots may be required occasionally. If none of the above work over a 6-9 month period of time, then surgery may be the answered. For activites, let pain be your guide. If it doesn't hurt, then its ok to do. READ MORE

Advil - up to 3 tablets 3 times a day with food. Also she should get some mild exercise. Unexercised muscles fatigue quickly and get sore. READ MORE

My 80 year old mother recently fell and fractured her ankle. How long should it take for her to recover?
Bones take 6-8 weeks to heal. Her recovery may be a little longer due to age and rehab. Total 3 months. Hope it helps! Bose READ MORE
Yes, you should see an Orthopedist especially if the symptoms are getting worse. Your symptoms could be any of a list of 15 things. Everything from an acetabular labral tear to a hernia to a pinched nerve in your back. An Orthopedist can try to figure which one it is. Hope it helps!! Bose READ MORE
Pain around the wrist in the absence of trauma can be caused by many things. However, the most common things are carpal tunnel syndrome or a tendinitis. I would take ibuprofen 600mg 3 times a day with food and buy a wrist brace and wear it as much as possible, even when sleeping. If, after 2 weeks, you're not better, see an orthopedic surgeon. Hope it helps, Bose READ MORE
Yes. However, injections of steroids into joints should only be done 2-3 times a year. The amount of pain relief and the duration of pain relief is highly variable from patient to patient. Hope it helps, Bose READ MORE
Probably. There is no proven answer, but in general it may take 10-20% longer than in healthy younger adults. READ MORE
The most likely problem is lateral epicondylitis or tennis elbow. This comes from repeated forceful gripping with the hand. Treatment is to avoid gripping, a tennis elbow strap (by one at a sports store) and advil or aleve. If you don't get better in a few weeks, see an Orthopedic Surgeon. Hope it helps, Dr. Bose READ MORE
This is serious business. If he had a true knee dislocation, this is limb-threatening injury with a possible vascular (blood vessel) injury. You should follow your doctor's instructions EXACTLY. Full recovery may take up to a year and require several surgeries. HOWEVER, he probably only had a patella dislocation. Although a bad injury, it is not limb-threatening. Here, recovery is in the 3-4 month range, provided that the knee cap does not dislocate again. Taking the cast off MAY mess up the recovery, so if the doc says wear it, then wear it. Hope it helps, Bose READ MORE
Yes, it is possible. Most falls as you described are just bruises or strains and resolve over 2-3 weeks. However, sometimes a fracture or disc injury can occur. If your pain does not improve quickly, then see an orthopedic surgeon. Hope it helps, Dr. Bose READ MORE
I recently recovered from a fractured finger. But after removing the cast, the finger still seems swollen. What could be the reason?
Fingers take a long time for the swelling to come out of them. As long as you're not having pain and the finger has good motion, don't worry about the swelling. READ MORE
She should be pain free by now. The limp is probably due to muscle weakness, which should improve over the next 3-6 mths. If the pain persists for another month, get the surgeon to check her out. It probably is just a tendonitis, nothing serious. READ MORE
If it was an ACL reconstruction, and he's not a professional athlete, I would wait one year before returning to any sport that involves planting the foot and cutting to a different direction. READ MORE
Most likely due to overexertion of the soft tissues from the run. If it improves after a couple of days with rest an ice, it's not serious. READ MORE
My brother has been diagnosed with tennis elbow. According to you what will be the best course of treatment?
Ice it. Stretch it (google it to see how), take advil (the prescribed amount) and get a tennis elbow strap. Wear the strap whenever you are using the arm to grab things. If it doesn't get better in a couple of weeks, have an Orthopedic Surgeon look at it. READ MORE
When the pain occurs, put ice on them for 20 minutes 4 times a day. Also take advil or aleve during episodes of pain. READ MORE
My knee is feeling tender and is slightly red. There is also some pain when I bend it. Should I use ice or heat?
Probably something called chondromalacia patella. Avoid squatting and excessive stair climbing, and take the recommended amount of advil for a few days. Ice is good. If it doesn't get better, have an orthopaedic surgeon look at it. READ MORE
No. You should be able to get around on crutches for the first week or two after the injury. Then you can begin to put some weight on the leg. Be sure to elevate and ice the ankle for the first two weeks. READ MORE
It can be cured. Most people recover from Sciatica with proper treatment in 3-6 mths. Only a small percentage of people require surgery. You'll need to have an x-ray and an MRI for accurate diagnosis. READ MORE
Get the hip x-rayed at least every 2 years. If there is signs of an impending problem, the doctor will tell you. If your mother lives long enough it may have to be redone, but the hip may last as long as 20 years. READ MORE
It is a birth defect where the bones of the foot are not formed properly. In mild forms it can be treated with casts or bracing. More severe cases do require surgery to align the foot properly. READ MORE
Recovery from back surgery varies widely from patient to patient. However, if 3-4 months pass and your pain is not decreasing, it would be cause for concern. Be sure to see your surgeon regularly during the post operative period. READ MORE
Yes. Shin splints are due to too much running too quickly. Rest is the cure. Resume activities slowly as long as there is no pain. Hope it helps READ MORE
Try to stay away from narcotics, it will only make things worse in the long run. Keep active. It seems best to become sedentary to avoid pain, but that will only make your joints more stiff and painful. Try to walk, and remain active and keep your joints active. Take anti-inflammatory medications. You will have to take them every day, because if you don't, the blood levels of the drug will fall and become ineffective. Occasional injections into joints can be helpful to reduce pain when they are severely inflamed. Hope it helps, Dr. Bose READ MORE
On the contrary. Weightlifting stresses the bones, which causes them to become stronger. Dr. Bose READ MORE
As you might suspect, the diagnosis could be any of 25 possibilities. If you were to see a doctor, they would want to know the exact location of the pain and what activity you are doing when the pain comes on. Most likely, it is a tendonitis of some sort. Pay attention to what activity you are doing when the pain occurs and avoid it. Try taking advil - 2 tabs 3 times a day. It will probably go away. Hope it helps, Dr. Bose READ MORE
What we know is that women who are post-menopausal (loss of estrogen), low in vitamin D and who do not do weight bearing exercises (walking) are prone to bone loss. Hope it helps, Bose READ MORE
Treatment for hammer toes without surgery is difficult, and often doesn't work. However, you can try these hammer toe splints: Make sure you wear shoes that allow for plenty of room for the toes! Hope it helps! Dr. Bose READ MORE
It's possible if the fracture healed out of alignment. Best to see an orthopedic surgeon and get an X-ray. Most likely it's totally not related. Bose READ MORE
The doctors did the correct thing. Follow their instructions and let it heal. It will take 2-3 months. Probably OK to do quad exercises, but make sure because not all femur fractures are treated exactly the same! Dr. Bose READ MORE
Yes, healing is slightly slower. Dr. Bose READ MORE
I am experiencing slight numbness and some pain after my elbow fracture surgery. What could be the reason?
Totally normal. Either the little skin nerves or one of the main nerves around the elbow were bruised at the time of injury. The numbness should subside over the next few months. Bose READ MORE
Yes, once the pressure on the blood vessels and nerves has subsided (after the birth of your baby), the pain in your legs should go away. Dr. Bose READ MORE
My right ankle seems to be swollen but there is no pain. Should I try ice therapy to reduce the swelling?
If there was no trauma and no pain, then the most likely reason is that the valves in your veins are "leaky" and you are retaining fluid in the leg. Ice is okay, but elevate your leg above your heart when the ankle swells. If the problem persists, then have your doctor look at it. Dr. Bose READ MORE
I will assume you're a young person with no significant lumbar disease. Most likely your muscles are weak, and therefore overstrained. Do lumbar "strengthening" exercises at least twice daily for 6 months. You can google these exercises. Dr. Bose READ MORE
Unfortunately, there is no data with which to base an answer. However, constant repetitive wrist and hand motion may increase your chance of carpal tunnel syndrome or perhaps even mild arthritis of the fingers. Hope that helps, Bose READ MORE
It is very possible that the pain in your knees is being referred (coming from) your hips. It could also be possible that you have arthritis in your knees as well (hope not). Hope it helps, Dr. Bose READ MORE
Numbness in the foot can be caused by many, many things. If associated with back pain, it could be a pinched nerve in the back. I could be a pinched nerve somewhere in the foot - either tarsal tunnel or a Morton's neuroma. Diabetes can cause foot numbness, but it usually causes numbness in both feet. If these symptoms persist, you need to see an orthopedic doctor. Hope it helps, Dr. Bose READ MORE
Yes, arthritis does have a hereditary component, so you may be more likely to get it as compared to another with no family history. However, just because your parents or family members have arthritis, you may or may not get it later in life. There is no way to completely avoid arthritis, but a few things that can help are as follows: 1. Keep your weight down. 1 lb extra around your waist puts 3 lbs of extra pressure on your knees. 2. Avoid impact loading activities/exercises. Best are swimming and cycling. 3. Stretch - stiff joints are often painful joints. Stretch the hamstrings and hip muscles and lumbar spine as much as possible. 4. Vitamin D - take 5000 units per day. 5. Keep your muscles tone with weights, but avoid squats or lunges. Hope this helps, Dr. Bose READ MORE
Excess weight puts increased pressure of compressive forces on the cartilage in your knees and premature wear. For every extra pound on your waist, your knees feel 3 extra pounds. This extra pressure can lead to early arthritis and pain. Non weight bearing exercise such as cycling or swimming is best for your knees. Dr. Bose READ MORE
Yes, of course heel pain can be treated. First things first. What's the diagnosis?? Is it heel spurs? Achilles tendonitis? or maybe something else. That's what you need to find out first. However, as a general rule, most "inflammations" that come on after activity are treated with RICE - Rest, ice, compression and elevation. Also take advil - 3 tabs 3 times a day with food. Stretching can help - but only the correct stretching. Get a heel cushion - you can get one at Walmart. If it doesn't get better in a week, see an Orthopaedic surgeon to make sure you're treating the right thing. Dr. Bose READ MORE
You should go to a doctor or ER and have it X-rayed. It could be dislocated or fractured. Dr. Bose READ MORE
There are many things that can help maintain good bone health as we age. Weight bearing exercises (such as running) stress the bones and stimulate them to get stronger. Calcium supplements, 5000u Vit D daily and 20 minutes of sunlight on your face daily also will help keep bones strong. If you are female, after menopause, get a Vit D blood level once a year to make sure your Vitamin D levels are in the normal range. Of course, smoking, excessive alcohol and sedentary lifestyle will deteriorate bone quality. Dr. Bose READ MORE
Of course, the whole point of surgery is to relieve pain. Unfortunately, the only "cure" for knee arthritis is a knee replacement. However, since you are young, a knee arthroscopy **may** relieve **some** of your pain (no guarantee). I would try the scope first. If it doesn't satisfactorily relieve pain, then you may need a knee replacement. Dr. Bose READ MORE
A partial knee replacement is done when only one of the three parts of a knee has arthritis. They last 8-10 years and then are converted to a total knee. Total knees are done when there is arthritis in 2 or more parts of the knee. Dr. Bose READ MORE
Not always. If the fracture is in good position with no displacement of the subtalar joint surfaces, then non-surgical treatment is OK. However, no putting weight on it for at least 12 weeks!! Dr. Bose READ MORE
It means that there is rubbing between your patella and femur bone. If it's not painful, PT and avoidance of squatting and minimizing stairs is the way to go. If painful, meds, injections and PT are done first. If that doesn't work, then an arthroscopic procedure may help. Sounds like you are a long way from a knee replacement. READ MORE
If you are a pro or major college athlete, you'll miss 2 games. If you are a normal person 3-4 weeks. You can put weight on the knee immediately without doing damage, but it will be sore for 2-3 weeks. READ MORE
You can swim, but don't jump into the pool. Use the stairs. Recovery is 3 months. READ MORE
Could be many things. Anything from bursitis to a hip torn labrum to a lumbar spine issue. Exercise may be making it worse. Probably best to have an Orthopaedic doctor check it out READ MORE
Probably a strained muscle. Reduce walking speed and duration. Gradually increase after 2 weeks. READ MORE
Sounds like a terrible problem, sorry. If all else has failed, an amputation would relieve pain. People with a below-the-knee amputation do very well. They walk normally with a prosthesis, and most people don't even realize it. It takes a few months for the amputation wound to heal and mature enough to fit it with a prosthesis. READ MORE
Yes is the short answer. A knee replacement should straighten your knee and give you long-lasting pain relief. READ MORE
It's probably Osgood-Schlotter disease, which is no big deal. It does hurt, but is not dangerous. Read about it. Rest, anti-inflammatory meds, ice is the treatment. It could be other things, but that's a very common problem. READ MORE
If the patient is older (>50). inactive and the knee isn't giving out, then its okay to not repair. However, chance of arthritis goes up. Younger, more active patients usually require repair. Bose READ MORE
