Chris Nowacki spends time with us discussing her husband’s bilateral knee replacement. Wallander (Wally) Nowacki was an Olympic cyclist early in his life. Finding himself in need of two new knees last age 65 he took the leap and did both knees at once.
Kathy (70) is a yoga instructor who found herself in the unenviable position of needing two knee replacements. With the consent of Dr. Brian McCardal Kathy did them both at the same time. One surgery. One recovery. It just made sense. A month later, after devoting herself to her recovery at home with The X10 Knee Recovery System™, Kathy got back to her yoga.
My surgeon agreed that using the X10 ONLY was fine since the results I was getting were so great. Smiles and happiness! The X10 was definitely the right decision as was my decision to do the bilateral knee replacement surgery.
It is called bilateral knee replacement. Two knees. At the same time. Usually it is performed by one surgeon; at times it is done simultaneously by two surgeons. And it is a massive trend in knee replacement nowadays.
Came home, started using it immediately a couple times a day. It doesn’t hurt because the machine knows when it’s putting too much pressure on you, and it will stop if it realizes that you’re getting too much pressure. It’s incredibly easy to use. I am so far ahead of where I would have been if I hadn’t found it simply because you don’t get any feedback on your own.
