Dr. Joseph M. Cohn M.D.'s Expert Contributions
  • Will I be able to swim again after ankle replacement?

    The usual recovery is 6 weeks on crutches non weight bearing, followed by 6 weeks of weight bearing in a walking boot with PT focused on regaining range of motion and strength. At the six week point, I usually allow my patients to begin pool exercises, but being careful with push-offs during lap changes. Hope this helps and best of luck in your recovery! READ MORE

  • My knee grinds when I climb stairs. What can be done?

    The best way to address your concern is with standing X-rays of your knees with multiple views taken to assess carriage wear and the presence of arthritis. It sounds like you may have cartilage wear under the knee caps. Depending on the severity, you may eventually require knee replacement but you should investigate all non operative management first. Hope this helps. READ MORE

  • Recovery for knee meniscectomy?

    If it is a simple menisectomy, I allow my patients to be weightbearing as tolerated the day of surgery. Range of motion exercises are begun the day of surgery. You should avoid kneeling on the affected knee for two weeks to allow the incisions to heal. Most patients are able to resume their activities at 4-6 weeks after surgery. It is not uncommon to experience some swelling up to 4-6 months after surgery. Hope this helps. READ MORE

  • Stabbing knee pain when lying down sleeping

    There are several possible causes for this. Meniscal pathology or a symptomatic plica or most common. A physical examination of the knee will be helpful and an MRI would be indicated to further evaluate soft tissue injury. Hope this helps. READ MORE

  • Recurring hip pain

    If the pain is anterior and there are mechanical symptoms like clicking or a sensation of giving way, it could be a labral tear. Sometimes, tendinitis about the hip can be the cause. A good history and physical with two views of both hips could help. An MRI may be indicated. READ MORE

  • Broken tibia, fibula and hole in ankle, surgeon suggesting amputation

    The prosthetics today are excellent. I have patients that participate in a number of sports including climbing, skiing, tennis, and running. The down time is usually about 6 weeks to get the incision to heal and then prosthetic placement starts to shape the stump for the prosthesis. Hope this helps. READ MORE

  • Inner thigh hurts when walking fast

    It sounds like possibly tendinitis of the adductor tendons. A history and physics cal exam with X-rays will probably delineate the cause. You may try pre work out stretching with focus on the quadriceps tendon and adductor tendons. Many good exercises can be downloaded off the internet. Hope this helps. READ MORE

  • I have chronic knee pain

    After exhausting all nonoperative management including oral medication, activity modification, injections (either steroid or hyaluronic acid), I recommend patients consider knee replacement. Other options which are not covered by traditional insurance are stem cell therapy or platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections. A standing X-ray of your knee would best assist in which treatment is best. READ MORE
