Just a brief note to express my sincere gratitude to you, Susan and your entire team at The Leone Center for giving me back my life.
There was a time when I couldn’t start my day without a 5 mile run; there was a time when every Saturday and Sunday began with 2 hours of tennis; there was a time when I never thought about walking or climbing a flight of stairs, but as you know, those years gave way to the slow deterioration of both my knees. One corrective procedure led to another and then another until my lifestyle changed completely.
Happily, I was able to play some golf, not very well I might add, but that too soon became a chore. Needless to say, I was not a happy camper! Then, through word of mouth and after visiting a few other specialists, I met you! I knew right away I was in the right place with the right doctor, your demeanor and the way you explained my situation and your method of knee replacement gave me the confidence to proceed.
I can’t believe it’s been only been 4 months and here I am basically pain free and no longer afraid of going up or down stairs. While jogging is a thing of the past I’m back at golf, lousy as ever, and may even try some tennis again. They say 70 is the new 40 and, thanks to you, I’m living proof that it’s true. I am forever grateful!
