Dr. Oz talked about a hidden source of knee pain. He called down an Assistant of the Day named Diana, who was very excited to help. Diana said she gets knee pain sometimes, because she tore her ACL a few years ago in a marching band performance. She never had the surgery to fix it.

Dr. Oz: What is a Baker’s Cyst?

Dr. Oz said some people develop problems due to wear and tear on their knees like that. Most people have a nice, even crease in the bend of the knee. But one in three people with knee problems had a lump there, distorting the even line. This is a common problem called Baker’s Cyst. Most people have never looked at their knee bends.

    Hi Dr. Oz,

    I can no longer print your notes because you no longer attach the Easy Print function. I print your notes to give them to a friend of mine, who teaches in the p.m. and does not know how to use a computer.

    Thank you,
    Carol Jackson
