John H., 90 years young at the time of his knee surgery
Problems with my knee started in 1950 with a football injury. Over the years, once in a while, my knee popped out and back in again. Recently, it got to the point where I couldn’t ride a bike because my knee could not go all the way around. I had to do something, and so I attended orthopedic seminars on knee replacement surgery, including seminars on MAKOplasty® partial knee replacement surgery with Dr.Thomas Hoerner. I scheduled appointments because I had questions, and finally in September 2016, I had a partial knee replacement. My surgery was at 8 a.m. and I was out of the hospital by noontime the next day. Truthfully, I had no pain at all following surgery. The only discomfort was when we were working on increasing the amount of motion in the joint, and even then the discomfort was from tightness. My experience with Dr. Hoerner was very good as was my care at Holy Family Hospital.
Three years ago I had a hip replacement in Boston. I didn’t want to back to Boston. It’s much more convenient to have it done here, and I thought Dr. Hoerner had a much better method with MAKOplasty®. I am very satisfied with the procedure and I have recommended Dr. Hoerner to others.
