Overview

Readers get the facts they need to make informed decisions about hip and knee replacement surg-eries-the two most common joint replacements in America. Hundreds of thousands of Americans suffer from painful, deteriorating joints-and for many, surgery is their only option for relief. Now, Dr. Ronald P. Grelsamer gives readers all the information they need to decide whether hip or knee replacement is the right choice. From the history and evolution of joint implants to the significant differences between types of implants and surgeries, he arms readers with the need-to-know facts for a lasting recovery, including a step-by-step physical program to recover from surgery in the shortest time possible. Dr. Grelsamer also examines the risks and limitations, informing readers under which conditions surgery would actually be more damaging than beneficial.
