Did you know that the mastectomy is an operation that’s hundreds of years old? Women were having mastectomies – breast removal – long before the advent of anesthesia, when the only thing a breast cancer sufferer could do was take a swig of brandy and bite down hard on her screams. Back then, surgery was a crude affair, the breast with its tumor carved off the chest with no thought for cosmetic appearance, muscle damage, or anything else. Those early 19th-century surgeons did the best they could – but it wasn’t good. Surprisingly, surgery remained fairly crude right up into the 1970s, with radical mastectomies robbing a woman not only of her entire breast and its skin, but the underlying muscle as well. A mastectomy could be crippling – and usually was. Enter the modified radical mastectomy (affecting just the breast itself, with very little chest muscle), which introduced a new era in breast surgery.

They are afraid that it will hurt even more after the surgery and that it will take a long time to recover. At least right now, they can walk without a walker. After surgery, the thought of using a walker or cane is enough to keep them away. Yet every year there are nearly one million adults who do have a total hip or total knee replacement. And that figure is expected to increase to four million in the next 20 years.

Surgeons from the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio divided a group of 103 total hip patients into two groups. One group (73 patients) had the traditional post-operative treatment after hip replacement. The second group (30 patients) tried a new rapid recovery program. The rapid recovery program combines several factors to enhance re...
