Today—October 13, 2016

NBC's Today Show follows Al Roker's knee replacement surgery at Hospital for Special Surgery. Mr. Roker recently had surgery with David J. Mayman, MD, hip and knee surgeon at HSS.

"You are in a generation of people who have been told all their life to stay active, stay fit, go to the gym, work out, so people are wearing their joints out earlier and not wanting to give up those activities," Dr. Mayman said.

The show also cuts to Mr. Roker live from his hospital room doing physical therapy with Wai-Kwong Hui, physical therapist at HSS.
