Robert says, "Even if you've been through a joint replacement before, there is a lot to know. Working with Dr. Hugate on this book about hip joint replacement surgery and knee joint replacement surgery was an education in and of itself and now that I've been through it all again recently in April of 2013, I found myself referring back to the handbook throughout this latest journey."
