Knee ReplacementStreaming Video - 2009
Patients living with knee pain now have several ways to find relief. This program analyzes the problem of knee joint pain and the latest treatments for it. Illustrating the importance of regular movement even when pain is present-rather than inactivity, which allows joint muscles to weaken-the program looks at minimally invasive procedures that have proven helpful. Case studies include the story of a cyclist who opted for SYNVISC, or knee-fluid replacement injections, and a woman who underwent gender-specific knee replacement of both knees. Expert interviewees include Dr. Anthony Unger from the George Washington University Hospital and Dr. Craig Bennett, chief of sports medicine at the University of Maryland Medical Center.
