Orthopedic Surgeon Touts Advancements in Knee, Hip Surgeries

The world of knee and hip replacements is in a new age, according to Morris Hospital Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Keith Rezin. Advancements have cut post-surgery hospital stays to such a degree that Dr. Rezin estimates approximately 30 percent of his hip and knee replacement surgeries are done on an outpatient basis. As he explains in this interview, patients have to meet the appropriate criteria for an outpatient knee or hip replacement, but treatments and surgeries in general have advanced to a significant degree. If you are experiencing knee or hip pain, we encourage you to take a moment to hear from Dr. Rezin how he can help get you out of pain and get you back to life.
