Because of my orthopaedic care, I can do anything I want to do!
As an orthopaedic surgeon who has done hundreds of knee replacements over the years, I thought I totally understood the very real benefits of such surgery. But it was only after I had my own knee replaced that I truly came to realize what a wonderful procedure knee replacement can be!
Before surgery I had gotten to the point that almost any activity was becoming more and more difficult. But what really prompted me to have surgery was when it was becoming so very painful to do one of the things I love most – play golf!
When it got to the point that I was really walking like an old man by the 14th or 15th hole I decided it was time to do something about it.
My knee replacement surgery was five years ago and I can truthfully do anything I want to do now – and without pain! And though my surgery did not make my golf swing any prettier, I can now play all day and never think about my knee! Truly a blessing!
