Jo’s Knee Replacement – Complete Recovery

Josephine got back to normal quickly after a total knee replacement surgery by Dr. Jason Cochran

LANSING, Michigan — Jo is an avid tennis player. Over time arthritis kicked in and her game was compromised. It was time for knee replacement and she turned to Dr. Jason Cochran.

After surgery in the hospital Jo’s range of motion was very poor. When she got home her bending was only 60º. That was the starting point. On the X10 she jumped to the “head of the class” on range of motion, was walking stairs, and was at 121º range of motion at only 15 days post surgery.

135º Range of Motion After Knee Replacement

BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Michigan — Jamie was planning for the usual 3-6 months of recovery from his total knee replacement with Dr. Perry Greene.

Stairs, riding a stationary bicycle, bending… back to normal.

Knee Replacement for Athletes

STAMFORD, Connecticut — Knee Replacement for athletes (current or former) is increasingly common. High school or college athletes, or amateur athletes in their 20’s/30’s can put tremendous demands on their bodies. And the knees usually do most of the “heavy lifting.”

Jim has “played” at a high level of performance all his life. Baseball. Boxing. Golf. Basketball. Tennis. He’s an athlete who is accomplished at many sports. He is a successful entrepreneur. He has great kids and a fantastic wife! So what’s the problem then?

Preparing for Surgery

Living alone and facing knee replacement surgery poses some unique challenges that could impact the recovery process. This cannot be underplayed since recovery is largely dependent on the support of a network of people, both professionals and social. While we might assume that there are professional networks in place into which we can be linked through – doctors, social workers, and in many cases insurance companies, unless we have a wide network of family and active friendships – people who live near you and whose schedules allow an easy inflow of support – there can be problems.

More Hurdles

There is some part of our psyche that allows us to believe in silver linings. So having “escaped” my erstwhile rehab facility one week after getting there, I felt that I was on my way to a seamless recovery because I had paid my dues. Well more fool me, I did not factor good old Murphy and his law.

Dr. Eddie El-Yussif and X10: Darnell’s Recovery

CLINTON TOWNSHIP, Michigan — Darnell needed a lot of assistance to get around. For five years the condition of his knee continued to deteriorate. While he approached a knee replacement with apprehension he was very happy that he went ahead with the operation at Henry Ford Medical Center with Dr. Eddie El-Yussif.

His only regret was that he did not do the surgery earlier.

Bird Hunting in Iowa No Longer Possible

BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Michigan — Jim is still an Iowa farm boy at heart, if not in practice. He continues to enjoy trips back home to Iowa hunting birds and enjoying the fresh air.

All this joy of the outdoors was at risk because of a bone-on-bone condition in Jim’s left knee.

A Knee “Rehabbed”

Greg had a knee replaced by Dr. Perkins who was recommended by Greg’s family physician. Dr. Tom Perkins performs orthopedic as part of the team at Crittenton Hospital.

Greg had hoped that he might just be able to continue with shots in his knees “forever” without having to go ahead with surgery.

DeClaire and X10: Louis’ Knee Recovery

Louis and his wife winter in Florida. That means golf, golf and more golf. So Louis timed his knee replacement with Dr. Jeffrey DeClaire very carefully. Maybe he was a bit conservative in his estimation of his recovery time. The fact is he was up, walking normally at two weeks. Active range of motion at the doctor’s office: 125 degrees. Passive range of motion on the X10: 135 degrees. These are numbers you would not expect to see at 6 months based on all national studies of patient range of motion results after knee replacement.

DeClaire and X10: Gary’s Knee Revision Recovery

The first surgery did not work out. Unfortunately it sometimes happens. It is no fun placing blame when something as important as a knee replacement is unsuccessful: the surgery itself, a poor rehab plan, the body’s natural and sometimes rapid creation of scar tissue. What Gary had to deal with for two years before he met Dr. DeClaire and got it right, was no fun at all. Now Gary is back. His knee works like it is suppose to.

Knee Replacement Depression

Post Knee Replacement

We’re working on a theme this month, which is “mobility is everything.”

MO·BIL·I·TY /mōˈbilətē/

If you have it you most likely take it for granted. Take a walk. Take a hike. Ride a bike. Go bowling… you get the idea. But if you do not have it these seemingly simple ideas may feel like impossibilities. Dreams. Wishes for a future that may never come.

For those who recover well from knee replacement these activities become a possibility again.

Pressure Modulated Knee Rehabilitation

The X10 is a Pressure Modulated Knee Rehab machine (PMKR). It is the only device of it’s kind.
Early after surgery the X10 moves your leg for you, to the edge of your comfort zone. The device allows you to quickly expand your range of motion and find your limits each day. The X10 pushes your limts gently, but steadily, toward your ultimate goal. It constantly monitors your knee’s tension and tightness during exercise. It encourages you to make progress when you are ready, but does not push you when you are not.
