Orthopedics Today—May 15, 2008

Douglas W. Jackson, MD, Chief Medical Editor of Orthopedics Today, interviewed Alejandro González Della Valle, MD, about gaining range of motion following total knee replacement surgery.

Postoperative stiffness can be prevented in the majority of patients; and, if detected early, it can be effectively treated. In this interview, Dr. González Della Valle shares his insight and approach to this problem.
