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.

In this interview, Dr. González Della Valle shares his insight and approach to this problem.
