This week: Same-day knee replacement surgery, a diaper bank and what is the body's interstitium?
Some patients can safely undergo surgery to have their knee joint replaced and go home the same day, says Dr. Timothy Damron, the vice chairman for orthopedic surgery at Upstate. Patients who are relatively healthy and motivated may qualify for the one-day procedure, he explains on “HealthLink on Air.”
Also on this week’s show: the function of the interstitium, plus the evolution of the diaper bank.
Tune in this Sunday, May 6 at 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. or "HealthLink on Air."
