On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program (8/24), the studio will be full with three orthopedics experts. Mark Morrey, M.D., will join your host Tom Shives, M.D., and co-host Amy McIntosh, M.D., to discuss joint replacement and regenerative medicine specifically for the joints. As joint replacement surgery becomes more common, more patients are considering if the procedure is right for them. Is it that simple? We’ll find out and discuss what may be on the horizon for fixing troublesome joints.
Myth or Matter of Fact: You have to be over 60 to be considered for hip or knee replacement.
Note: You can listen to the program LIVE Saturdays at 9 am CT on I Heart Radio via KROC AM. The show is taped for rebroadcast by some affiliates. On Twitter follow #MayoClinicRadio and tweet your questions.
