NBC "Nightly News" anchor Brian Williams, who suffered a sports knee injury 30 years ago, is up and walking 24 hours after undergoing a total knee-replacement procedure. Williams is just one of the more than 645,000 patients who receive total knee replacements each year, which is double the combined number of cases for hip, ankle, wrist and shoulder replacements, according to this video. The cost of the procedure varies based on the patient's condition, age and area of residence, but the replacement parts could last for up to 30 years.
