MAKOplasty Partial Knee Replacement: Ultra Sports Athlete Excels - 1 year- post op

Share this post

25 years ago, our patient injured his knee playing rugby and had his meniscus removed. By the time he came to see Dr. Stone, he was bone-on-bone on his left knee and had had 4 surgeries. All orthopedists he went to see told him he would need a total knee replacement. Dr. Stone was able to help our patient avoid a total knee replacement by doing a MAKOplasty partial knee replacement. " For me this was the perfect surgery, I was only on crutches for four days" He was walking on his knee within a week and riding his bicycle within 2 weeks. As an ultra athlete, within two months he was doing 100 mile rides. Less than three months he was skiing - all without pain. Check out the video to learn more about what he's been up to within a year of surgery....including biking around Europe! " I can't say enough good things about this."

A question I am asked a lot is, “I hear clicking and popping in my knee, is this something that I should be concerned about?”
For Runners, a tragic side-effect of knee arthritis or injury is sometimes the end of their running career. But take heart—there are some very good alternatives.
The Golden State Warriors, and star Steph Curry, may seem like superheroes—but they’re human beings with human parts. He’s what their knees endure during each game, and why (barring injury) they're able to handle it with such finesse.
