This week: a new tool for hip and knee surgeries, and a prostate cancer support group

Dec 3, 2014

Orthopedic surgeons are using a new tool at Upstate University Hospital which helps them precisely install replacement parts for hips and knees.

“This robotic arm is connected to a series of computers that allows the machine to recognize where, in a three-dimensional space, the tip of that arm is located,” describes Dr. Robert Sherman.

Also this week: Ray Straub and the American Cancer Society’s Jason Warchal discuss the Men to Men prostate cancer support group, and editor Deirdre Neilen presents the 14th annual issue of the Healing Muse, Upstate’s literary journal.

In addition, psychologist Rich O’Neill provides a “Check Up from the Neck Up” essay.
