knee replacement

A rural doctor can offer state-of-the-art medicine and a more personalized approach than typically found in a bigger city, according to Dr. Robert Ostrander, and his son, Dr. Geoffrey Ostrander. The father and son are both graduates of Upstate Medical University who share a family practice in the Finger Lakes village of Rushville.

They explain the vital role rural doctors play in their communities and expand on how life isn't as remote or technically backward as some might think.

Also this week: knee and hip replacement options, and college students' misuse of stimulants.
