Artificial Knee Replacement - Patient Experience

Total joint replacement for athletes

When it comes to total joint replacements, traditional advice is: Don’t exercise too much. Don’t run. The fear is that the joint replacement will come loose or wear out. It’s possible that this advice to limit activities actually increases the number of failures. Our advice is to exercise more than you have in years. Focus on total body muscle building and weight optimization. You can likely return to most sports when you are fit enough to protect your joints.

Outpatient Total Knee Replacement Patient Story - 1 week post surgery

Our patient is understandably emotional as she tells the story of how, just one week after her total knee replacement, performed as an outpatient procedure, she can imagine a new direction for the rest of her life.

Already up and walking and working hard with the physical therapists, she says,"If I hadn't come I would have continued to compensate for my bad knee and slowed down and assumed this was the price of getting old. Now I am thinking about a whole new world of things that I couldn't have done before."

"The old phase is 'a new lease on life' and that is what I have."

At The Stone Clinic, knee joint replacement, both partial and full, has now found a home in the outpatient setting. This means patients don't have to go to hospital. The leap was made possible by a combination of factors. These include the availability of enhanced computerized surgical planning, the use of human-guided robotic arms, and novel ways of preventing the pain of surgery from getting to the brain of the patient

Outpatient Total Knee Replacement Patient Testimonial - 1 wk post op.

Total and partial joint replacement has finally moved out of the hospital. Our patient was pleased to have avoided a hospital for her total knee replacement. Hospital infection rates are higher than outpatient settings, and are more difficult to treat. Hospitals are also large, inefficient and expensive because they have to cater to a wide range of ill people, deal with multiple layers of unionized staff, and doctors of all specialties.

Makoplasty-partial-knee-replacement
Knees do not necessarily wear out evenly, sometimes one part of the knee is perfectly fine while another part is completely destroyed. If only part of the knee joint is worn out, why replace all of it?
Mind, Body, Gut Connection
Gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free…all these variations of diets originally designed to address irritable bowels are exploding—apparently, because people’s bowels are now explosive. Celiac, diverticulitis, irritable bowel syndrome, and their relatives are being diagnosed more frequently than ever. As a society, Americans are becoming both more mindful and more stressed. Could these be linked through the gut?
