It’s no secret that knee and hip replacements change lives–just ask one (or more!) of my patients who have undergone a procedure. New joints can get you back into the activities you feared were long gone due to Osteoarthritis or other symptoms of aging. As a result, getting a “new” knee or hip has almost […]

Preserving vs. replacing a damaged joint
