MAKOPlasty Partial Knee Replacement Patient Story - 5 weeks post op

Share this post

Our life long athlete patient travelled from Norway to have a partial knee replacement in both knees.

He had been told by many surgeons in his home country that that his only option was a total knee replacement. He was told to accept that he was getting older and to appreciate other things in life. He refused to accept this and so researched online and found The Stone Clinic. When he met Dr. Stone, he asked him what would be the limitations of the procedure. “He looked at me and said, "What limitations" and that really made me believe that that was the right thing for me." 5 weeks after the procedure he is very happy. "It is very important to me that I can live my life the way I want to." 'I recommend anybody that has been told that nothing can be done, talk to Dr. Stone - come and check it out for yourself".

“Push through the pain.” “No pain, no gain,” we were told in our youth. These are outside voices – but listening to your body and knowing when to stop is the key to diminishing self-inflicted injuries and lengthening your sports career.
