There's Something About a Good Surgeon

Feb 12, 2007

I have always been fortunate in being relatively healthy.  I have always been relatively skinny too.  I served in the Army for four years out of highs school and that seemed to help keep my metabolism running high.

I run several miles a week now and try and stay in good shape.

The issue is that I am getting older and my knees are starting to worry me.  I have run, climbed, hiked, rode, jumped, fallen, crashed and experienced many other wear and tear types of activities that I suspect may some day catch up with me in the knees.

My mother-in-law has had two Knee Replacement surgeries and I know from her accounts that it is a difficult experience. Fortunately, the methodologies and treatments are improving all of the time.   As I getolder and wiser I am trying to take better care of my knees and avoid the activities that can harm them.

I have also looked more thoroughly into a site for Gustafson Orthopaedics, one of our sponsors for this articele.  They provide some excellent orthopedic patient education and even some good video explanations of procedures.  With their information and my new found wisdom, I am hoping to take better care of my knees to avoid future joint problems and complications that might require surgery.  However, I also know that very good service is available and I have less anxiety over the treatments necessary to help patients with knee injuries or problems.
