Joint replacement affects 773,000 American each year, with total joint replacement becoming more common. Orthopaedic Associates of Zanesville specializes in joint replacement and we have even offered patients tips on what to expect from the surgery in previous blog posts.
Now, the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS) has teamed with the Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation (OREF) to sponsor a documentary on total joint replacement. The 52-minute film, called “Total Joint Replacement: A Patient’s Perspective,” provides an inside look at real patients that need hip and knee replacement surgery.
Portions of the free film are available to download on the AAHKS website. It has also recently been re-released in DVD format and is designed to increase awareness of joint replacement benefits.
