When Robert Reed, an active athlete for much of his life, developed arthritis in his knee, he thought he would need a knee replacement. Rather than replacing the knee however, doctors performed a newer surgery, called “partial knee resurfacing.” In this surgery, doctors remove and replace the damaged surface of the knee, rather than swapping out the entire joint.
This is accomplished through the use of metal and a high-density medical plastic connecting to the bone. Partial knee resurfacing surgery allows doctors to minimize impact and recovery time, as well as requiring less invasive follow-up surgeries should the knee become injured later in life.
Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum, MD, a specialist in the field and pioneer of minimally invasive knee and hip surgeries such as partial knee resurfacing, says that this surgery is a viable alternative to total knee replacement for nearly seventy percent of patients, including any patient who is experiencing osteoarthritis in only one part of the joint, as opposed to those with rheumatoid arthritis or other, more severe forms of arthritis.

This surgery also leaves options for patients who may need to return, allowing for less invasive surgeries later. In the case of a total knee replacement, patients whose knees fail require another costly, invasive knee replacement, rather than relying on existing, healthy bone and tissue to fill in the gaps.
Dr. Kirschenbaum is a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and was trained in hip and knee replacement and reconstructive surgery at the Rothman Institute. He developed instruments for partial knee resurfacing and holds several trademarks in the field. He now resides and practices in White Plains, NY.

The Fagali Airport, previously owned and operated by Polynesian Airlines, is located in Fagali, Samoa. This is a small village on the island of Upola approximately 5 kilometers southeast of Apia. It, at one time, was a grass-only strip that was paved and opened in 2002, only to be quickly de-commissioned in 2005 due to safety concerns. In 2009 Polynesian Airlines reopened it and resumed service. The controversial airline attracted criticism from both an environmental and safety stand point.
Few airlines have operated from the airport including: Polynesian Airlines and Somoa Air. Although small, the airline is very reasonably priced and a great way to travel to and from the island of Upola. Upola, a beautiful island, was formed by a massive volcano. 75 kilometers long and 1,125 kilometers wide, it stands as the second largest geographic area with a population of 135,000 people and is one of the most populated Samoa Islands.
One can use all of the commonly used travel sites to find easy and cheap flights to Fagali Airport. Depending on the time of year, flight prices and times will vary. The best place to stay once you have arrived to the island would be Apia, only a short distance away, this will provide the most variety of housing options at a cheap price.
The man, the myth, the advertising legend: Alexandre Gama’s name is known far and wide as one of the most prominent advertisers across the spacious lands of Brazil.
Alexandre was born in Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro in 1958. Today, Mr. Gama is 59 years old and has roughly 36 years of experience in the advertising industry under his proverbial belt.
Mr. Gama initialized his career in marketing after two years of working generally bad, dead-end jobs following his graduation from what is the American equivalent of high school by attending the Advertising and Communications program at the nearby Armando Alvares Penteado Foundation.
Even though Gama had not practiced conversational English extensively after graduating with this advertising degree, he still felt fully prepared to move to the Big Apple – New York City, New York – to work for one of the hottest ad agencies across the United States of America, Standard Ogilvy & Mather.
He started working for the major ad agency in 1982, then flew back to his home nation of Brazil eight years later. This eight-year stint would actually be the longest that Alexandre Gama ever worked for just one employer. That isn’t to say that Alexandre Gama didn’t have substantial hard and soft skills that made him a successful advertiser and marketer, because he very much did possess those characteristics.
In 1990, DM9 called his name as creative director and copywriter. Even though DM9 had only been formed by an inexperienced founder about one year before Mr. Alexandre Gama was able to hop on board, Alexandre was able to bag so many awards that he earned far more than any other person in the position of copywriter across the nation of Brazil. In 1999, Gama branched off to found Neogama, today one of the best ad groups in Brazil.
Throughout history, the American Institute of Architects has been working to make changes for people who are a part of the architectural industry. They not only provide them with the valuable resources that will help them become better architects but they also give them the inspiration they need to continue helping people who are aspiring to be a part of the industry. The American Institute of Architects helps people by giving them the educational opportunities they need, by allowing architects to connect with each other and by doing all of these things from convenient geographic locations.
Education is important to the American Institute of Architects because they know there will not be any new architects to join their organization until they are able to help other people with the issues they would typically have in the architectural industry. Through their open education source, the American Institute of Architects has been able to show people the different options they can get from the educational resources they have. They also do what they can to make sure everyone knows they have an opportunity to become architects based on the issues they would typically face in the industry.
When new architects are getting started, it can be difficult for them to get the assistance they need. It can be especially hard for them to find the clients they need when they are getting started. The American Institute of Architects is able to give them the help they need to get their first client. Even after they have gotten their first client, the American Institute of Architects is able to help them with different resources on their own. They can help them get all the clients they need through the valuable connections they have on their own. Everything the American Institute of Architects does for architects is so they will have a chance to make their own businesses better.
While the American Institute of Architects has always operated out of Washington, D.C., they continue to help more people by spreading out to different geographic locations. They want to be in places that are easily accessible to architects throughout the country. For the American Institute of Architects to do this, they have to keep expanding and helping other people with the issues they have. The idea behind offering different locations is so architects from all areas can get the support they need from the organization.
