Knee Replacement: Back to Work and Play

Sharon, age 62, is a design consultant for a custom home builder. “I’m out in the field walking through homes under construction all the time. So obviously I have to climb ladders,” Sharon says. When the arthritis pain got so bad that it limited her lifestyle, Sharon elected to have each of her knees replaced with Virtua’s minimally invasive, quad sparing technique. Three weeks after her second replacement, she was back at work and back to doing the things she loves like gardening, dancing and walking on the beach. She says, “There’s just so much that I can do now that I couldn’t do before. It’s like I’m a different person.”
