In this episode, we focus on the impact on care resulting from meniscal allograft research conducted by Dr. Steven Arnoczky.

Prior to his tenure at College of Veterinary Medicine at Michigan State University, Dr. Arnoczky was on staff at Hospital for Special Surgery where Dr. John Marshall inspired him to research injuries and treatment of the ACL.

Although he made his career as a veterinarian, Dr. Arnoczky is well known among orthopaedic surgeons. In 1984, he received an OREF Research Grant to evaluate the structural, physiological, and biomechanical character of cryopreserved meniscal allografts transplanted into knee joints to learn if they could potentially be used to replace a damaged or removed meniscus, minimizing degenerative joint changes that happen with a meniscectomy.

Watch as Dr. Arnoczky discusses how his body of work has impacted clinical practice and, most importantly, how it has improved patient outcomes.
