We are now offering a webinar (conference call discussion) for those of you needing a hip or knee replacement. Learn from other patients and patient advocates of their patient experience and knowledge in the area of implant devices, and the research that needs to be done as an empowered patient.
Becoming further involved in all phases of your health also includes the device selection process. You don’t have to leave it up to your surgeon to choose what goes into your body, you can collaborate and work together, and know what questions to ask about the joint replacement process, including the components.
