Joint Re­place­ment Surgery In­for­ma­tion Class

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

If your knees and/or hips are be­gin­ning to hurt, you are not alone. As the Baby Boom gen­er­a­tion moves full-speed ahead into their se­nior years, joint re­place­ment is be­com­ing one of the fastest grow­ing med­i­cal pro­ce­dures. A num­ber of peo­ple con­sid­er­ing joint re­place­ment surgery at­tended a joint re­place­ment class at North Coun­try Hospi­tal on Tues­day, Jan­uary 29. Thomas Var­ney MD (seen in the photo), an Orthopaedic sur­geon at North Coun­try Ortho­pe­dics in New­port, ex­plained the pro­ce­dure. Other mem­bers of the North Coun­try med­i­cal team pro­vided in­for­ma­tion, not only about the pro­ce­dure, but what to ex­pect fol­low­ing the op­er­a­tion. Peo­ple in­ter­ested in learn­ing about when the next joint re­place­ment class is planned, please con­tact North Coun­try Ortho­pe­dics at
