Knee Replacement SurgeryStreaming Video - 2011
Bob had been a lifelong athlete until knee trouble began to keep him off the basketball court. Like millions of aging but still active adults, he confronted the pain when it started restricting his daily activities, too. This program examines deterioration of the knee joint and the options for partial or total replacement when nonsurgical interventions fail to bring relief. Medical experts outline the basics of the procedure along with its risks, stressing the importance of sticking to a post-operative rehabilitation plan. In addition, a hiker discusses her decision to have surgery-now much less invasive than when the procedure was first developed-and how it eventually improved her life.
