New Patient Story

I was told I was too old for joint replacement and a risk factor. Well, I am aging faster because I am almost unable to walk without the fear of falling down because of a very bad knee. What is further amazing was that Deaconess Hospital had no qualms about doing surgical procedures putting a metal implanted device in my heart. It seems that a knee replacement would be much less risky.
