WOW! ! That is a huge improvement in time. I had a replacement knee in 2001 & was in hospital for two weeks. Three months later back to playing lawn bowls at top level.

WOW-GREAT NEWS!!! My dad's Knees are bad & it's time for him to have Knee replacements, But he won't go get them done due to the Hospital Stay & then the amount of time he has to stay off his feet at home. He's just the type that DON"T like to depend on ANYBODY for help... HOPEFULLY, FINGERS CROSSED, this does /will work. TY Nancy for sharing. Can't wait to share the Great News w/ him this Morning.. :):)

This is one medical breakthrough which has a lot of merits. Cutting hospital stays are good for everyone in the long run. Home is the best place to heal.

YAY, I will need this pretty soon. I knew if I could just hold out, procedures would get more and more user-friendly.

Sending a Green Star is a simple way to say "Thank you"
You cannot currently send a star to Nancy because you have done so within the last week.
I'm sending you my Love instead.

Let's hope this discovery spreads all over the world to the people who need it and doesn't remain a privilege for those in the "first" world that just happen to be richer or better informed.
