Knee Replacement: Got Her Golf Game Back

When pain in her knee and hips caused by an old car accident became intolerable, Michelle, age 53, was at her wit’s end. “The pain got to the point that it was even hard to walk,“ Michelle says. She and her husband gave up boating, and playing golf was becoming increasingly difficult. After a consultation with a surgeon—who told her that as long as she could still walk, he wouldn’t operate—Michelle was devastated. Then a friend suggested Virtua’s minimally invasive, quad-sparing joint replacement. Michelle was thrilled to be able to go ahead with the procedure. Today, Michelle is back to boating and swinging away on the course. And, she got an extra bonus. “Ever since I had my knee replaced, there’s less strain on my hips, and the pain there has gone away!“
