It’s Wound Care Awareness Week 2017!

Wound Care (2)

Over 6.7 million people in the United States are living with chronic wounds. Due to the lack of awareness of advanced wound care, the vast majority of these people do not receive the treatment they need and deserve. With this being said, we are excited to announce the fourth annual Wound Care Awareness Week. This week is dedicated to raising awareness of advanced wound care and its benefits to every patient living with chronic non-healing wounds. Through this effort, we will raise awareness of the chronic wound problem and help community physicians identify patients who may benefit from advanced wound care.

The EmergeOrtho Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Center is an outpatient clinic based at North Carolina Specialty Hospital. This center has been open since 2013 and provides directed and specialized care for problem wounds that do not respond to a typical treatment plan. These type of injuries might include: Diabetic foot ulcers, venous stasis ulcers, pressure ulcers, non healing flaps and grafts, wounds resulting from past radiation therapy or injury, and persistent wounds associated with bony infection.

The Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Center has many comprehensive treatment plans which are unique for each patient to coordinate maximum healing in the smallest amount of time to help the patient return to their normal activities. Some therapies that may help a patient include: improving medical comorbidities and nutritional status, advanced dressing care, aggressive debridement programs, negative pressure wound therapy, arterial revascularization procedures, reversal of venous insufficiency, application of dermal skin substitutes and hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

Dr. Burns is a graduate of Davidson College and the Wake Forest University School of Medicine. He is board certified by the American Board of Surgery and has worked in general surgery for 12 years. He lives in Chapel Hill with his wife and two children.

EmergeOrtho at Physician Assistants in Orthopaedic Surgery Conference!

Kuremsky (1)

 

EmergeOrtho at Physician Assistants in Orthopaedic Surgery Conference!

 

This weekend Physician Assistants in Orthopaedic Surgery hosted Extremities in the Carolinas, a subspecialty conference for PA’s practicing in Orthopaedics.  Dr. Marshall Kuremsky was invited to speak on two topics, Compressive Neuropathies of the Upper Extremity, and Distal Biceps and Triceps Tears.

The conference took place in Charlotte, NC, the city where Dr. Kuremsky spent his Internship and Orthopaedic Surgery Residency, at Carolinas Medical Center (CMC).  In fact, he was introduced onstage by a Physician Assistant who had worked with him at CMC.  During his residency, at Carolinas Medical Center, Dr. Kuremsky was selected as a Chief Resident in Orthopaedic Surgery.  He went on to become the only orthopaedic surgeon in the state with double Board Certification in Hand Surgery and Sports Medicine, and with this expertise he addressed the group of 250 Physician Assistants on Saturday.

Dr. Kuremsky treats upper extremity injuries in all age groups, with clinical interests including wrist and elbow arthroscopic surgery, elbow replacement, elbow ligament (“Tommy John”) reconstruction, labral and rotator cuff shoulder repair, endoscopic carpal tunnel release, and wrist ligament reconstruction, in the Apex, Brier Creek, and Raleigh locations of EmergeOrtho.

As the official organization for PA’s practicing in orthopedics, Physician Assistants in Orthopaedic Surgery (PAOS) created this conference as an opportunity for surgeons and other experts to speak on the most requested topics in Orthopedics.  Dr. Kuremsky was one of twenty specialists sharing the latest techniques, current literature, and pearls of wisdom for PA’s practicing in orthopedics.

Sam Dyer, PA-C, has been a Physician Assistant with Triangle Orthopaedics, now EmergeOrtho, for almost 20 years, and runs the Orthopaedic Urgent Care in Chapel Hill.  Last year he was elected the President of PAOS, and in his tenure has been working to increase CME opportunities, including video, and building membership of PA’s and student PA’s.

Clifford Daub, PA-C, DC, and Jonathan Prentice, PA-C, also attended the conference.  Cliff specializes in the Spine and sees patients in Durham with Dr. David Musante.  Jonathan works with Dr. Ralph Liebelt seeing Hip, Knee, Spine, and General Orthopaedics patients at the Durham office of EmergeOrtho.

In the Triangle Divison of EmergeOrtho, over fifty Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners care for patients in Orthopaedics, Rehab Medicine, Bariatrics, and Bone Health.  They work closely with the physicians in clinic and in surgery.  The ten Orthopaedic Urgent Cares in the greater Triangle area are staffed by these providers, enabling patients to pay a specialist copay as a more efficient, less costly alternative to the ER.

According to the American Association of Physician Leadership, nationally there are 416 PA’s for every 1,000 Orthopedic Surgeons.  Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners are important providers in EmergeOrtho’s mission to deliver patient-centered care.

Injury Prevention: Reduce Risk of ACL Tears in Pre-Season

Warmer weather means pre-season starts soon for many sports.  The pre-season is an impactful time for injury prevention: eight to ten weeks of proper conditioning can reduce risk of an ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) tear by 60-90%!

Shepherd Rosenblum MD recently wrote an article for a recent Healthcare Guide with The Franklin Times, “Understanding and Preventing ACL Injuries.” He shares that of the 250,000 surgical ACL repairs each year, most injuries are non-contact.  This means cutting, twisting, and landing are risks for tears – and opportunities for pre-season training.  Increasing agility, balance, strength, and core strength with neuromuscular training enables athletes to improve their alignment and protect their knees.

ACL Sports Medicine

Dr. Shepherd Rosenblum is a board certified, fellowship trained orthopaedic surgeon specializing in Sports Medicine, shoulder, hip, and knee arthroscopy and reconstruction, and

cartilage repair. He has expertise in treating a wide variety of sports-related injuries, as well as problems related to degenerative conditions such as rotator cuff tears, ligament and cartilage problems of the shoulder, elbow, hip, knee, and ankle. Dr. Rosenblum has been in practice since 1995, and has great experience in helping his patients to return to health and activities as quickly and safely as possible. He relies on a variety of techniques, emphasizing conservative management whenever possible, but Dr. Rosenblum is also able to offer the most advanced, minimally invasive surgical techniques available to his patients.

To schedule an appointment with Dr. Rosenblum or any of our Orthopaedic Surgeons, please contact us at 919-220-5255.

Dr. Viens’ Research Highlighted! Lateral Ankle Ligament Sprains, Secondary Reconstructions, and Allograft Reconstructions

If you get the Journal of the American Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons, you probably saw Dr. Viens cited in the cover ad!

After his residency in orthopaedic surgery at Duke University Medical Center, Dr. Viens pursued a fellowship in orthopaedic surgery of the foot and ankle at The Steadman Clinic and Steadman Philippon Research Institute in Vail, Colorado.  Originally published in the American Journal of Sports Medicine, his fellowship research is still referenced frequently today.  The two-part study was about treatment of lateral ankle ligament sprains and various techniques of secondary reconstructions, and allograft reconstructions.  These conditions are of particular interest to Dr. Viens, whose expertise from his fellowship has been further enhanced by his subsequent years specializing in Foot and Ankle at EmergeOrtho.

In addition to this article, he has co-authored publications in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research, Foot and Ankle International, Journal of Arthroplasty, and Journal of Surgical Orthopaedic Advances.  He also co-authored the introductory chapter of the latest AAOS/AOFAS textbook on ankle replacement with his fellowship mentor!

National Women Physicians Day

Women Physicians

 

Celebrate Today and Pave the Way for Tomorrow – National Women Physicians Day

To recognize, honor, and celebrate female physicians and their contributions to healthcare, February 3rd has been declared National Women Physicians Day. This date also marks the birthday of Elizabeth Blackwell, the first female physician in the U.S., who opened the door for the hundreds of thousands of female physicians who came after her.

Communities around the nation are asked to observe this holiday to celebrate how far we have come as a society in empowering females to choose careers in medicine, and to recognize the progress we still must make to support the development and equality of women in medicine. Female doctors are an integral part of our patient-centered healthcare system, yet today females only make up a third of the physician workforce. In a traditionally male-dominated field, female physicians often face challenges that their male counterparts do not, including unequal pay, gender bias, sexual harassment, and a workplace that tends to be inflexible to the needs of women who wish to have families and a medical career.

During National Women Physicians Day, efforts will center around honoring the physicians who paved the way for women in medicine, increasing awareness of the sacrifices and obstacles female physicians must overcome, inspiring the future generation of female physicians and pushing our society towards greater equality of the sexes within this field.

 

Physician Moms Group (PMG) was founded in November 2014 by Dr. Hala Sabry in an effort to bring together women physicians, who are also parents, so that they can collaborate and support each other while sharing their medical expertise in an open forum. The PMG mission is to provide resources, a platform to network, and an opportunity to share information with like- minded individuals. The PMG network includes over 65,000 women physicians of all specialties across the globe. For more information, visit mypmg.com.

EmergeOrtho PA Receives National Recognition

Johns Creek, GA, Jan. 11, 2017 – Krista Kathleen Bartlett, PA-C, who is employed by EmergeOrtho, has been nationally recognized for earning a specialty credential called a Certificate of Added Qualifications (CAQ) from the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA).

Bartlett was recognized for earning a CAQ in Orthopaedic Surgery, a distinction earned by meeting licensure, education and experience requirements and then passing a national exam in this specialty area. She is one of only four Certified PAs in North Carolina to earn a CAQ in Orthopaedic Surgery since the program’s inception in 2011.

“Certified PAs are prepared and proven providers who contribute real value to the healthcare of this nation,” says Dawn Morton-Rias, Ed.D, PA-C, president and CEO of NCCPA. “They graduate from demanding masters-level programs, pass a rigorous certification exam, and maintain certification at the highest level through continuing medical education programs and retesting throughout their careers. Certified PAs increase access to care for patients in every specialty and clinical setting, including those that are historically underserved.”

CAQs are offered to certified PAs in cardiovascular and thoracic surgery, emergency medicine, hospital medicine, orthopaedic surgery, nephrology, pediatrics and psychiatry.

 About the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants

The National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA) is the only certifying organization for physician assistants (PAs) in the United States. The PA-C credential is awarded by NCCPA to PAs who fulfill certification, certification maintenance and recertification requirements. There are more than 115,500 certified PAs in the U.S. today. For more information, visit www.PAsDoThat.net.

copy-of-copy-of-emergeortho-news-3

JANUARY 3, 2017 – EmergeOrtho is opening a new 30,000 square foot building in Brier Creek this week to provide comprehensive Orthopaedic and Specialty care to Wake County.  Located at 7850 Brier Creek Parkway, the location will offer Orthopaedics, Sports Medicine, General Surgery, Bariatric Surgery, Bone Health, Physical and Occupational Therapy, and an after-hours Orthopaedic Urgent Care. The Brier Creek office will be comprised of experienced, board-certified providers who have been treating patients at other Triangle locations of EmergeOrtho, formerly Triangle Orthopaedic Associates.

“We formed EmergeOrtho to preserve the private practice model, a standard of care that puts the patient first.  We are proud to expand our services in Wake County with this new, state-of-the-art facility,” says Dr. Thomas Dimmig, acting president of EmergeOrtho.

The location of the new office furthers EmergeOrtho’s dedication to patient-centered care by further simplifying outpatient surgery.  The Brier Creek clinic is located adjacent to Triangle Orthopaedics Surgery Center, a 10,000 square foot single-specialty surgery center dedicated to Orthopaedics.  Patients scheduled for outpatient procedures will be able to have pre-op appointments, surgery, follow-up care, and physical rehabilitation in one convenient area.

The new office is also near another EmergeOrtho facility, a partnership with D1 Sports, located at 6330 Mount Herman Road providing physical therapy and sports medicine.

EmergeOrtho has 49 office locations in 21 counties from the mountains to the coast of North Carolina.  The name change came in August of 2016 as four physician-owned practices joined  in a common mission of delivering innovative, streamlined, patient-centered care, empowering patients to emerge stronger.
