At MultiCare, we believe that an informed patient will have a better understanding of how to get better and stay well. While our physicians, nurses and therapists spend much of their time explaining diagnoses, conditions, treatment options and recovery plans, we have found that it’s helpful to our patients to have ready access to all of that information. When you've got a question, check our Online Health Library.
Procedures like joint replacement or arthroscopic surgery are complex and detailed. It can be hard to picture exactly what your physician is talking about when he or she describes joint activity, bone movement, tissue damage and the like. This is when an interactive module, showing joints in action with careful explanations, can help.
