On Sunday, April 3, 2016, Michael P. Bolognesi, MD, chief of the Division of Adult Reconstruction at Duke, performed knee surgery on Duke and United States Olympic coach Mike Krzyzewski.
When interviewed by ESPN, Dr. Bolognesi said, “The technical aspects of the case went as we had hoped, and Coach Krzyzewski is doing well. We will try to get him up walking today, as we will let him put as much weight as he tolerates on the implant right away.”

Researchers Turn to Canine Clinical Trials to Advance Cancer Therapies
JAMA. Published online March 30, 2016. doi:10.1001/jama.2016.0082
About 6 million dogs are diagnosed with cancer each year, and more than half of dogs older than 10 years will develop cancers such as osteosarcoma, lymphoma, or melanoma (http://1.usa.gov/1OAxijB
). But the heartbreaking diagnosis for dog owners is a treasure trove of potential data for oncology researchers. In clinical trials at academic research centers across the country, veterinarians and physicians are studying how pet dogs respond to cancer therapies and analyzing the genetic makeup of these tumors. Although medicine and veterinary medicine, for the most part, have been viewed as 2 different worlds, with little exchange of information between the two, that is beginning to change.
