Dr. Thomas San Giovanni, Orthopedic Surgeon with Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Institute says there's constantly new equipment for surgeries. “Part of it is also the knowledge of the anatomy.

The specialist affirms It's important to know the technique, but also how to use the equipment and how to get around things to avoid.
