A landmark study from Baylor Medical School used this headline for their report “Study Finds Common Knee Surgery No Better Than Placebo.” The New York Times article about this study calls it a “sham procedure.” This study challenges the usefulness of arthroscopic lavage or debridement surgery finding the effectiveness no better than that of placebo surgery. An additional study including 180 participants found that people who had no surgery (placebo surgery) did better than those who had cartilage removed or flushed out.
These studies and our clinical experience suggests surgery is usually only needed when there is a torn ligament, yet there are over 650,000 knee cartilage surgeries done every year- each one costing about $5,000. Do you want to see that math? That is $3,250,000,000 in unnecessary surgeries. Don’t you think there is a better way to achieve knee pain relief and ultimately be able to spend that money on something more enjoyable.
