Partial Knee Replacement surgery patient 2 years post-op

My name is Greg, I'm 70 years old and I had a partial knee replacement with Dr. Stone on the medial compartment of my left knee. It's been two years now since I had the surgery and I'm extremely happy with the procedure. I mean, I'm back to what I did before I had the surgery. I'm doing climbing. I went hiking last summer. I did 17 miles in one day off-trail and at 6,000 vertical feet. So, I had no problem at all doing that. I followed it up with quite a few mountain climbs in Glacier Park, which is my favorite place in Montana that I live right across from. So I'm just perfectly happy with this. It took a while. I mean, I had to work at it. I did everything I was told to do and I persisted at it and now, at the two-year mark, I'm just very happy.

We want to keep our patients active for life and follow-ups are critical in achieving an optimal outcome from any surgical procedure. Greg returned to The Stone Clinic for his 1-year follow-up on a Partial Knee Replacement procedure and wasn’t quite at his desired level of full flexion. Dr. Stone and the PT team assessed Greg’s challenges and sent him back home with a new exercise regime that helped Greg obtain that last bit of elusive flexibility. Returning again for his 2-year follow-up, Greg now feels stronger than he was before his injury and is back to enjoying long hikes and intense mountain climbs. We are thrilled we can play a role in helping Greg, and all our patients, return to the activities they love.
