Walking Out After Joint Replacement

Imagine going for hip or knee replacement surgery and walking out of the hospital that very same day. This could now be possible, thanks to technical and technological advances, leading to early recovery and fewer post-surgical complications. We get consultant orthopaedic surgeon Dato’ Dr Siva Kumar Ariaretnam, from Subang Jaya Medical Centre, to explain how he has refined his surgical technique, and adopted cutting-edge tech, to help patients get back on their feet within hours.
