Patient discussion about minimal

Q. How successful s minimally invasive surgery for knee replacements?

A. Approximately 300,000 knee replacements are performed each year in the United States. and it said that 90% of the people who had a total knee replacement report an improvement in their function. i searched the CDC statistics for failure of the surgery and couldn't find any info about it. but as i said- it's a very common surgery. my grandmother had a hip joint replacement due to arthritis, it helped.
here is something that might help you to prepare for the surgery:

good luck!!

Q. how do i keep my baby as minimal as passable exposed to the out side world threats? like decease and other things

A. It might seem like a caring attitude, but I'm not sure it's neither possible nor absolutely necessary - babies do get sick, usually only mildly and transiently, so trying to prevent all the cases of fever would be quite impossible.

What you can do, is to maintain the regular infant welfare visits, give him or her the necessary vaccinations (one of the most important things you can do for your child), make sure your baby eats well, regarding both the amount and type of foods, and generally keep a good hygiene: make sure to wash hands after you go to the toilet and before you handle your baby, don't expose him or her to other sick infants etc.

However, all this is just a general advice - if you have specific question you may want to consult your doctor (e.g. a pediatrician).

Take care,
