Lawrence Orthopedic Surgeon Chats About Arthritis, Joint Replacement and More

 

by Karrey Britt, LJWorld reporter

Douglass Stull, MD, Orthopedic Surgeon at OrthoKansas 

Dr. Doug Stull, an orthopedic surgeon in Lawrence at OrthoKansas, answered a variety of questions regarding aches, pains and joint replacements during a live chat today on WellCommons.

During the chat, Stull said that he performs between 30 and 40 shoulder replacements a year, and the surgeries take about two hours. He also provided a personal opinion about glucosamine and chondrotin supplements.

To see a transcript of the hourlong chat, visit WellCommons.
