Fix vitamin D prior to surgery
This article from The ClinicalAdvisor.com might be of interest to you if you (or a loved one) will be undergoing orthopedic surgery in the near future. The article discusses that insufficient levels of Vitamin D can impede bone healing post operatively. Note that the levels of "sufficiency" in this article are considered to be 30 ng/mL ---- my own phyisican prefers his patients to be at an optimal level of 70-100 ng/mL---as always, check with your health care practitioner.
