I does do you specifically our next guess died doctor Brian McKean who is the Boston Celtics team doctor for those that don't know. He's also the sports medicine specialist at New England Baptist hospital. He's got a he had trial going on right now and he needs some people. To have meniscus injuries in the rejoining him is because I think Boston is yet again gonna move medicine forward here. No they haven't been this is injury doctor. I want you guys have me. I'm in the best and you read these he you know Borchardt or considered to be elected but many and the you know. And this standard of care nowadays is to get an MRI to confirm that that this study. Is really designed for excessive patient switchers many many many felt that law and amount of applications that. Here's feminist which is oh so common. And they have are prosecuting. And admiration towards her dream you know that they volatile and most patients do wonderful. But this doesn't patients as a law it is fractures and other so war. They're not mentally as well as books you know once. They have a little that are writing Wednesday that doctor always tells us and look any. Just. Stay strong you know completely done if you always you know they'll run on it. And the patient canyon around and they they'll doctor in doctor consider that not bad enough to have a joint replacement. And that's not good enough data from puppy and needs extra you know biological procedure so that kind and is well I don't know man play. And the invasion that potentially has.

Because of his patient population which is much more common completely airlines get all wrapped point five ourselves typically can't we candidate he's gonna take it out. I think you have sir you continued pain. And together until we get quarter home bracing and tell them I'll highlight of the very frustrated because this implant. HD basically this is an actor like a wedge or cushion. But made of plastic metal grades I think that you actually put into the day to the record straight for sure drug use different sides and to keep with the plan and and you know I think my first patients about a year out now out of alignment and body can't wanted to have an American out. And so along our early results search for or no encouraging. Extraordinarily encouraging. So what's recovery time on something like this doctor. It's an outpatient surgery will want to get saying little it takes about 45 minutes to go Jamaica little decision and like literally pop and almost a plastic cap from a come on you know a large cranberry geez can't or something tells me that survived and he is insurgent anime is different side and they did an excellent fit for bad.

It's you can plant or can preserve. Patience on this and then all of our power play until later light up right now I would look at it sort of globally as a staged surgery and it would try to avoid something in the future but this that your your follow now in Europe the second the first patiently German.
