Dr. Walker A. Wynkoop M.D.'s Expert Contributions
  • Is knee surgery advisable for a person who is 78 years old?

    It depends on the type of surgery. A large surgery with a long recovery period is not usually offered to someone described like your father. Smaller surgeries are: total knee replacement, usually, no; knee arthroscopy (called a knee scope), usually, yes. Your dad's family doctor is in a good position to help answer this question, I suggest you attend a visit. READ MORE

  • I have a bulge just above my backend on my lower back. What is it?

    In worst case scenarios, this is cancer, especially if it’s through the last 2 to 4 months and Hertz. Go see a surgeon for family practitioner. READ MORE

  • What is the treatment for musculoskeletal pain?

    Stretching and strengthening, usually under the supervision of a physical therapist is the best first line treatment. It’s a good idea to have your primary care provider evaluate him first though. READ MORE

  • I can notice a slight curve on my back. Is it scoliosis?

    Possibly. Scoliosis is actually a twisting of your back bones so if you bend forward, one side of your ribs will be higher than the other, by like an inch or more. Also, scoliosis happened when one is growing. Arthritis and osteoporosis cause some curving when you are old and older. Your family doc should be able to check, and I bet YouTube has a vid on how to check it out. Good luck! READ MORE

  • Is there a cure for bursitis?

    Bursitis is an inflammation of the bursa. There is no instant cure. General anti-inflammatories often help like ibuprofen, 200 mg tab, 2 or 3 tabs 3 or 4 times a day, assuming your kidneys function well. (Do not take if kidney problems unless you ask your kidney or family doctor first.) Cold compresses or an ice pack (melting ice in a zip lock - mix ice and water) can help. Rest the joint, avoid heavy use, but some use like walking 5 to 10 minutes is good. Cortisone injections from your family doc or a specialist can also help. It is unusual to have multiple joints with bursitis, so look for a cause. Maybe an irritating activity like kneeling causes knee bursitis. An unusual cause would be gout. Good luck! READ MORE

  • Can lifting weights in the gym cause my bones to become weak?

    NO! That is what makes bones strong. The amount of calcium gained by the time one is about 20 years old pretty much determines how the bones do in the future, especially for females. So, go for it! BTW, stressing bones with fast walking or running is even better for building bones! READ MORE

  • I have osteoporosis and a spine fracture. How long will it take for me to be fully cured?

    6 to 12 weeks to be mostly cured. And you will likely have some chronic pain or stiffness. READ MORE
