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.

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

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

Renewed Vows

Larry is 65 years old and is retired. He and his wife Karen are taking advantage of every minute of this new found freedom. The only thing getting in the way has been knee pain. The shots he took started wearing off faster and faster… then they just stopped working. And the pain just never went away. The last thing he wanted was to rely upon a cane after knee replacement.
