The Blog:

As far as the various methodologies explained in the handbook go, every joint implant manufacturer has their own, proprietary path. We didn’t list these on purpose, as they are a biasing factor having much to do with commercial competition and corporate marketing. The basic principles of replacing a person’s hip or knee joint will remain the same into the foreseeable future, the implant must be placed correctly and it is imperative that it be a good fit. While trends, materials, and methods concerning total joint replacement continually change and evolve, the decision making processes, the cautions and limitations, and the reasons for considering such a life changing operation all remain the same. Moreover, while each person’s stay in the hospital will be somewhat different than described in the passages about the actual hospital stay (written by Mr. Holland based on his own experiences), many people have never been through such a profound operation as total joint replacement. The description of how it feels to go through this experience has been lauded by medical professionals and patients alike as being extremely helpful.
