If you are having your knee, shoulder or any other area operated on by an orthopedic surgeon, you may want to know what you need to do to prepare for the surgery. In other cases, you may just have general questions on orthopedics or on how to safeguard the health of your bones. Hi! My name is Jules, and as a teen, I had my first orthopedic surgery. Throughout my adulthood, I have studied every aspect of bones and ligaments, and I do a lot, including diet and exercise to keep them healthy. My goal with writing this blog is to help people avoid orthopedic surgeries and to help people who already have surgeries scheduled to prepare for them. I hope that you like these posts.
