Both Knee Replacement Patients Doing Brisk Walk
I was pleasantly surprised to meet one of my patients, whom I had operated for both knee replacement a few years ago, doing a brisk walk in the park. Normally general perception is that knee replacement is the last resort, a salvage surgery, for osteoarthritis of the knees. People keep on postponing the surgery until they are unable to walk even after taking painkillers.
I always tell my patients that knee replacement will not increase the quantity of your age, but it will definitely improve the quality of your life. This patient is an affirmation of my belief and conviction. May she be bestowed with a long and healthy life.
