Patients Should Expect 'Long Life' from their Joint Replacements!
Date:9/8/2010

GLEN COVE, N.Y., Sept. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- In response to the news that DePuy Orthopaedics, the manufacturer of an artificial hip system, issued a recall of its ASR product line after data indicated a higher than expected need for device replacement surgery five years after the initial procedure, Dr. Eugene S. Krauss, chairman of the Department of Orthopedics and director of the Orthopedic and Rehabilitation Institute at Glen Cove Hospital, a member of the North Shore-LIJ Health System, states:

Do it once. Do it well...and allow the patient to return to an active and long life."

Dr. Krauss continues, "If you want the best outcome, three factors must be in place: 1. A highly experienced surgeon who is part of a comprehensive joint program. 2. A surgeon associated with a Health System that enables him to use the highest quality implants made in America. 3. A post-operative Rehab program with therapists who will place the patient back on the road to recovery. The most successful outcomes are achieved by combining the best surgical team, a comprehensive rehabilitation program, and a motivated patie
