Artificial Knee Replacement - Patient Experience

Total joint replacement for athletes

When it comes to total joint replacements, traditional advice is: Don’t exercise too much. Don’t run. The fear is that the joint replacement will come loose or wear out. It’s possible that this advice to limit activities actually increases the number of failures. Our advice is to exercise more than you have in years. Focus on total body muscle building and weight optimization. You can likely return to most sports when you are fit enough to protect your joints.

Outpatient Total Knee Replacement Patient Story - 1 week post surgery

Our patient is understandably emotional as she tells the story of how, just one week after her total knee replacement, performed as an outpatient procedure, she can imagine a new direction for the rest of her life.

Already up and walking and working hard with the physical therapists, she says,"If I hadn't come I would have continued to compensate for my bad knee and slowed down and assumed this was the price of getting old. Now I am thinking about a whole new world of things that I couldn't have done before."

"The old phase is 'a new lease on life' and that is what I have."

At The Stone Clinic, knee joint replacement, both partial and full, has now found a home in the outpatient setting. This means patients don't have to go to hospital. The leap was made possible by a combination of factors. These include the availability of enhanced computerized surgical planning, the use of human-guided robotic arms, and novel ways of preventing the pain of surgery from getting to the brain of the patient

Outpatient Total Knee Replacement Patient Testimonial - 1 wk post op.

Total and partial joint replacement has finally moved out of the hospital. Our patient was pleased to have avoided a hospital for her total knee replacement. Hospital infection rates are higher than outpatient settings, and are more difficult to treat. Hospitals are also large, inefficient and expensive because they have to cater to a wide range of ill people, deal with multiple layers of unionized staff, and doctors of all specialties.

Avoid joint replacement
You are told you have knee arthritis. The advice the doctor gives you is to go home, rest your knee, take anti-inflammatory drugs, lose some weight, wait until you are older and then get an artificial knee replacement. This advice is awful. Here's why.
DNA-Language
What if we can learn to listen, understand, and respond to genetic communications? Could we have a genetic Fitbit and language translator? And, as gene editing techniques like CRISPR Cas-9 continue to become less inexpensive and more available, could we engage in a daily conversation with our personal genetic dictionary?
Steph-Curry-Ankle-Injury
The questions most often asked by athletes, coaches, trainers, and of course fans are, “What can be done to speed healing?” “What can reduce the re-injury rate—and are there permanent solutions?”
