Hip Implant Failure

Some implants for hip replacement surgery are being recalled and some are loosening prematurely. On this edition of Line One we will discuss these problems with Anchorage orthopedic surgeon Dr. Steve Tower and Dr. Michael Mayor, Dartmouth orthopedic surgeon and past chairman of the FDA’s Advisory Panel on Orthopedic and Rehabilitation Devices.

Learning from Failure

Failure is an essential part of the learning process, and learning how to handle failure appropriately without giving up or freaking out is all part of maturing. How can caregivers help kids to "fail" well? Studies show that kids who are praised for their effort instead of their intelligence are more likely to overcome failures and do better in school and life. The leading international researcher in this field, Dr. Carol Dweck, joins us as well as Dr. Maria Ippolito from UAA. KSKA: Tuesday, 1/10 at 2pm and 8pm
