Tim recovered from Double Knee Replacement and then Double Manipulation Under Anesthesia using the X10 Knee Recovery System. In the process he gained extensive knowledge about how to get through a Bilateral Knee Surgery and get back to life.
Both of my knees were injured on 9/11. I was crushed in Tower Two when it collapsed. I had immediate surgeries, right after 9/11. On August 21, 2019, I had my left knee replaced.
