Back to Full Stride : Knee Replacement Surgery( Visual )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bob had been a lifelong athlete until knee trouble began to keep him off the basketball court. Like millions of aging but still active adults, he confronted the pain when it started restricting his daily activities, too. This program examines deterioration of the knee joint and the options for partial or total replacement when nonsurgical interventions fail to bring relief. Medical experts outline the basics of the procedure along with its risks, stressing the importance of sticking to a post-operative rehabilitation plan. In addition, a hiker discusses her decision to have surgery-now much less invasive than when the procedure was first developed-and how it eventually improved her life
Colon cancer, prevention & treatment( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This show looks at the arc of colon cancer -- from screening options and education, to the stages of cancer, to treatment options, to a new horizon of treatment and prevention - through the eyes of three patient/interview subjects and the health and medical experts that are our guides through each story. In some cases those medical experts are the actual physicians treating our patients. In other cases they are experts who can offer a look at the bigger picture of this disease.
