Northwest Medical Center "Hip and knee replacement surgeries are one of the biggest success stories of medicine," says John A. Maltry, M.D., [Tucson Orthopaedic Institute surgeon and] Medical Director of the Joint Replacement Program at Northwest Medical Center (NMC). "Millions of people worldwide have been restored to a comfortable, active lifestyle as a result of these life-changing procedures.

"It is important to us to make sure our patients improve so we actually have them describe their functionality before and after surgery," says Dr. Maltry. "The goal is for patients to achieve a 60 percent improvement in their ability to complete simple movement such as walking, sitting, rising out of bed and standing up after sitting.
