NYU Langone Orthopedics
Complex Case Spotlight
A woman in her 50s presented to the NYU Langone Hospital—Brooklyn emergency department after a work-related fall. She reported severe pain in her right hip that had persisted for months and x-rays revealed lesions on her spine. Physicians diagnosed her with multiple myeloma with involvement in the spine and pelvis, and surgeons performed a percutaneous stabilization of her spine using bone cement. Instead of the traditional Harrington procedure, which carries a high complication rate, a team led by Karim Masrouha, MD, assistant professor of orthopedic surgery, performed one of the first surgeries of its kind in the New York metropolitan region.
