Surgery can be very scary. For a lot of people, they want to avoid it at all costs. When it comes to joint replacements a lot of patients want to know what other options there are. Or if they should try something pre-surgery.

Will injections like cortisone help?

Are stem cells going to regrow my cartilage?

Will taking turmeric, glucosamine or something else help?

Is it safe to exercise?

Am I just getting old and should stop doing everything?

In this episode of our special three-part series we sit down with Orthopaedic Surgeon Dr Stuart MacKenzie and discuss the options to consider before getting a hip or knee replacement. What’s worth your time, money and energy. What is a waste and what is potentially doing you harm.
