Golden Athletes and Recovery from Joint Injuries

Dr Harjeet Singh, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon

Golden Athletes and Recovery from Joint Injuries

In last month’s 29th SEA Games, we were all amazed by sportsmen and sportswomen at their prime, performing feats that many of us wouldn’t even imagine. Today for our monthly show with Dr Harjeet, consultant orthopaedic surgeon, we will focus on athletes and acute joint injuries. Not just any athletes, but athletes competing at the international level when they are in their 60s, 70s or even 80s. How can older athletes excel at an age when our bodies are supposed to be deteriorating? And how would recent advances in joint injury treatment prevent progress to osteoarthritis?
