Santa Fe, New Mexico (PRWEB) July 31, 2013
New Mexico knee surgeon James Lubowitz, M.D. has recently launched a new website newmexicokneesurgery.com. The site provides educational information for patients who are seeking insight and practical knowledge on problems associated with the knee. Focusing on conditions related to the knee, this educational portal discusses ACL, multi-ligament, meniscal and other knee injuries along with highlighting innovative arthroscopic treatment options.
Multi-directional movement of the knee, the largest joint in the body, makes it extremely susceptible to injury. Dr. Lubowitz has completed multiple research studies on injury analysis, and innovative treatment techniques. At the 2013 Annual Meeting of the Arthroscopy Association of North America, he presented his findings on a less invasive ACL reconstruction technique. This technique resulted in equal knee stability with evidence-based less pain then other common techniques.
Dr. Lubowitz has been awarded the Arthroscopy award from Vitals.com. This award is given to America’s leading physicians who are proficient publishers on a specific disease or medical condition. He is in the top 15% of publishers on knee arthroscopy. Vitals.com has also awarded Dr. Lubowitz the compassionate doctor recognition. This is awarded to physicians who treat their patients with the utmost kindness and respect.
