Yoga and Bilateral Knee Replacement
An Interview with Kathy Reddington
Listen in on a conversation between Mary Elliott (X10) and Kathy Reddington. Kathy (70) is a yoga instructor who found herself in the unenviable position of needing two knee replacements. With the consent of Dr. Brian McCardel 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.

About Kathy: ‘I am a mother of two, and a grandmother of five. I’m a retired art teacher in the State of Michigan, and a practicing artist. My undergraduate work was done at Western Michigan University. I completed my graduate and post grad at Michigan State University. Definitely a Spartan!! I was active for many years skiing, walking, hiking, teaching aerobics, wind surfing, tennis etc. My first knee injury was 12 years ago left knee scope – I was told I would need a replacement in the future. In October 2018 my right knee blew out unexpectedly. And I was on crutches until my surgery January 17, 2019. I chose bilateral surgery because I knew I did not want to entertain two knee surgeries one after the other.’
