This content was provided by Dr. Jacobs When I worked in a material science laboratory that dealt with medical devices, that's when I became hooked on orthopedic surgery. Because I saw how important the materials that are used - for example in joint replacement - have such a critical impact on the outcomes of the surgery. In my area - in adult reconstructive surgery - a patient will come in typically after years and years of pain and disability involving their hip or knee. And then to see them back a few weeks after surgery, where their pain is gone, and because their pain is gone, their activity level is increased. These are some of the most grateful patients that exist in all of medicine - where you really, you can really see the impact you've had on their life.
