Orthopedic Sports Medicine

Surgeons at Chicago-based Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush received a grant from the National Institute of Health to research donor knee cartilage.

The NIH grant was awarded to sports medicine physician and professor Adam Yanke, MD, PhD, and professor Nozomu Inoue, MD, PhD, according to a May 25 news release.

Dr. Yanke and Dr. Inoue are co-principal investigators and will study the properties of donor knee cartilage to identify how to best match it with cartilage transplant patients. They will also evaluate the effectiveness of using less expensive and cumbersome imaging to study donor cartilage.
