Operation Walk Boston 2017 - Clinical Day 2 (March 3, 2017): First Full Surgical Day/Follow-up Clinic

The first full surgical day set us off for a busy and productive start. We started with morning rounds followed by a full day of surgery. We did 18 joint replacements in 12 patients, including 6 bilateral knee replacements. The day was very rewarding for both patients and staff. There were lots of triumphs today!
