This content was provided by Dr. Palutsis "Whether it's at national meetings, or conferences on Sports Medicine, Orthopaedic Surgeon Roger Palutsis, M.D., advocates for minimally-invasive surgeries and procedures that result in faster recoveries and cost savings for eligible patients. Many of Dr. Palutsis' patients return to work and active lives within a few weeks of surgery -- even after total hip replacements.
