Share this post

A ski injury at 19 led to Julie having to have her meniscus removed. 30 years later she had developed severe arthritis in her right knee. She couldn't straighten her knee. " I was bone on bone and I couldn't even walk my dog." Many surgeons told her she needed a total knee replacement.
