Practice Makes Perfect

The newest edition of the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery contains an article titled “Effect of Surgical Caseload and Revision Rate Following Total and Unicompartmental Knee Replacement”. The aeticle is based on the results of 500,000 patient records from England and clearly shows that high volume surgeons attain the best results following partial knee replacements (uni) and total knee replacements.
In other words, the SINGLE most importatnt determining factor to maximize the result of the surgery is to select a knee surgeon who does the most procedures. Dr. Sobeck and myself perform more total knee arthroplasties than any other surgical group in our valleys, PERIOD.
If you have knee pain and have been told that you require a joint replacmeent surgery, the best thing you can do is get a second opinion with us at the Los Angeles Orthopaedic Institute.
We are looking forward to maximizing your result and having you return to an active, pain free life.
Keep Moving!!
Dr. Sisto
