“I’ve had both of my knees replaced through St. Mary Mercy’s Center for Joint Replacement. I was suffering from rheumatoid arthritis and my knees were literally being attacked. They would fill with fluid, I would have them drained and would still be in a lot of pain.

I met David Mendelson, MD years ago when he repaired my rotator cuff.

With my knees, I was experiencing pain and stiffness. The arthritis had really destroyed the joints and Dr. Mendelson suggested knee replacement.

I attended a Center for Joint Replacement pre-surgical class in October 2010 where they discussed the surgery itself, what to expect, and the healing process. The class definitely helped put my mind at ease. I had my left knee replaced in November 2010, and it went better than I thought! The pain wasn’t as bad as I imagined and I was up walking later that night. It’s truly a great program.”
