Hello from New York! We are with Dr. Pablo Gelber, who is in Barcelona, Spain. Dr. Pablo Gelber is an Associate Professor of Orthopedic and Trauma Surgery at the Autonomous University of Barcelona. He practices in several hospitals in Barcelona. We are going to discuss complex knee injury problems, especially sports-related knee trauma. Professor Gelber is particularly focused on helping patients avoid so-called “metal solutions” after knee trauma, and we will discuss this in our conversation. We will talk about the rehabilitation aspects of knee trauma treatment too. Let me now do a quick review of Professor Gelber’s biography.
