Robotic-Assisted Knee Replacement And Other Joint Solutions

With 40% of referrals from primary physicians related to joint and musculoskeletal health, being able to actively enjoy life without aches, pains, and movement difficulty is a major concern in health care today. At the same time, orthopedic surgeons are moving into increasingly sophisticated procedures to help people with joint issues maintain a healthy, active lifestyle.
