BALDWIN BONE & JOINT ANNOUNCES A NEW FACE, NEW FOCUS

Dr. Rhett Hubley to focus on clinical services as BB&J welcomes Michael Chamblee, M.D. as its newest orthopaedic surgeon

DAPHNE, AL (July 20, 2017) – Longtime Baldwin Bone & Joint (BB&J) orthopaedic surgeon Rhett Hubley, M.D. is expanding his clinical services, focusing his talents on a non-operative, office-based practice. Ultimately, Hubley will transition to a non-surgical practice effective August 7, 2017.  The move coincides with the addition of orthopaedic surgeon Michael Chamblee to the practice.

“This is simply a transition. I’ll be in the office, seeing patients, available for same-day referrals,” Hubley said of the change. “I’ve worked in this community for more than 20 years and have gradually built a practice with a team of physicians who offer various specialties in the field of orthopaedics.  Now I’ve simply decided to restrict my practice to in-office work.” (Photo: Dr. Rhett Hubley)

Hubley explained that Dr. Chamblee, who will join the group July 31, will provide a new option for patients in need of surgery, particularly the hip and knee surgeries that have been his specialty. “We’ve got young surgeons coming in that are very capable,” he continued. “I’m going back to the clinical side.”

Michael Chamblee comes to the practice from the Meridian Orthopaedic Clinic in Meridian, Mississippi, where he has been practicing since 2011. He is a 2006 graduate of University of Mississippi Medical Center School of Medicine and completed his residency in orthopaedic surgery at UAB Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama.

 “This is a longtime, established practice of great physicians,” Chamblee said of BB&J. “I’m looking forward to joining their team.” Of his specialty, he explained, “Hip replacements are what I enjoy most. It’s good to see people get better and its very surprising how quickly they can recover. You can really make a difference in their quality of life.” (Photo: Dr. Michael Chamblee)

Many of his patients, Chamblee said, are active people experiencing debilitating pain from arthritis. “It can restrict their sports, hobbies and even normal activity. It’s very rewarding to be able to do a surgery and see them get back to those activities they love.”

Chamblee and his wife Brooke are looking forward to the move to the Eastern Shore with their sons Collins (7), Gray (5) and Elliot (4). “We spend a lot of time outside,” Chamblee said of his family time. “We like fishing and outdoor sports. And we’re looking forward to being a part of this wonderful, growing community and to getting involved in church and community activities here.”

TIP SHEET: Signs Your Running Shoes Need to Be Replaced

Running in old or worn-out running shoes can lead to running injuries. Over time, your running shoes lose shock absorption, cushioning and stability. When you run in worn-out shoes, it increases the stress and impact on your legs and joints, which can cause overuse injuries. One of the best things you can do to prevent running injuries is to replace your shoes at the right time. Here’s how you know that you need new running shoes:

  1. The mileage on your shoes is high.
    A good rule of thumb is to replace your running shoes every 300-400 miles, depending on your running style, body weight, and the surface on which you run. Smaller runners can get new shoes at the upper end of the recommendation while heavier runners should consider replacement shoes closer to 300 miles. If you run on rough roads, you’ll need to replace your shoes sooner than if you do primarily treadmill running. If you take good care of your running shoes, you may be able to get away with the higher end of that range.

  2. You’re feeling pain.
    If you’ve been feeling muscle fatigue, shin splints, or some pain in your joints — especially your knees — you may be wearing shoes that have lost their cushioning. When you’re feeling pain on both sides — both knees, for example — that’s often an indication that you need new running shoes.

  3. Your shoes fail the twist test.
    If you hold your running shoes at both ends and twist the shoe, it should feel firm. An old shoe or one that doesn’t have proper support will twist easily.

  4. Your soles are worn-out.
    One tell-tale sign that you need new running shoes is if your soles are worn-out. The soles last longer than the shoe’s cushioning and shock absorbency, so if the soles are worn down, it’s definitely time for new ones. You should never run in shoes that have worn-down soles. Save them for working in the garden or mowing the lawn!

  5. Newer shoes feel much better.
    Some experts recommend that runners rotate two pairs of running shoes. If you get a new pair of running shoes about half-way through the life of your old ones, they can serve as a reference to help you notice when your old ones are ready to be replaced. If you notice a big difference in the cushioning of the newer pair, then it’s probably time to retire the old ones.
