Dr. Duerr’s In the News

  • Dr. Duerr’s  In the Media Sports Medicine
  • Dr. Robert Duerr discusses advanced knee surgeries at Mercy Clinic that may be alternatives to knee replacement. Patients that have had a sports injury such as an ACL or meniscus tear may also have knee cartilage injuries that can lead to painful symptoms several years later. Surgeries such as the osteochondral allograft and obtaining a cartilage biopsy that used to grow new cartilage can delay knee replacement surgery until retirement age.
