Hero Description:

Receiving artificial joints is a life-changing procedure. Recipients feel different, move differently, and learn new ways of living. Patients recover wanting to avoid future surgeries and maintain the health and integrity of their artificial joints. Outside of the exam room, patient compliance and lifestyle factors can trump any remedy, procedure, or medication. Butternut to Bionic is a patient advocacy resource to improve understanding and communication between healthcare professionals and patients. This conversational guidebook offers humor, candidness, and laymen terms. To empower recipients, the author shares her first-hand account with this procedure and emphasizes the importance of patient accountability and partnering with medical professionals.
