Thousands of Total Knee Replacement booklets are purchased by hospitals and pediatricians across the U.S. to give to their patients. It is used in knee replacement preparation classes and by nurse educators. Because hospital and health care budgets are shrinking, Media Partners has decided to make the information available online. We hope it helps with tight education budgets! Media Partners, Inc.
In addition to learning about knee replacement, you can learn about knee anatomy and how to use that knowledge to understand why you had to have your knee replaced.
