“Dr Mark Hutchinson, professor of Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine at the University of Illinois Medical Centre, and star of the 3 million times viewed BJSM physical examination videos [bit.ly/17UykR2] gives Karim Khan an update on examination and management of acute knee injuries.

He shares his experience in interpreting physical signs, imaging indications, and the advantages of early sideline diagnosis.
