AMSURG Partner Dr. Douglas Garland Explains Why You Might Need Joint Replacement Surgery

AMSURG partner Douglas Garland, M.D., Surgery Center of Long Beach, wrote an article for the California-local publication Long Beach Post about joint replacement surgery and why patients may want to consider it.

“Joint replacement surgery is often indicated as a ‘last resort,’ but that doesn’t mean you need to suffer needlessly,” Garland said. “Advancements in joint replacement technology for hip and knee replacements such as wear-resistant materials make prostheses more durable and longer lasting.”
