Podcast Summary

Long Beach Memorial is shifting the culture of knee replacement surgery. Rather than wait until the entire knee is completely arthritic, the trained MAKOplasty® orthopedic surgeons are using MAKOplasty® to help people sooner, by doing partial replacements, rather than waiting for a total replacement in a few years.
