Knee Replacement Gone Bad

A woman went to have a uni-compartmental knee replacement, and immediately upon waking from surgery was in extreme pain in the back of her knee. Despite the orthopedist's reassurances that everything was fine, and that physical therapy would solve her problem, the pain continued for the next four months. Follow-up x-rays revealed that the original hardware was not put in the correct position during the original surgery. As a result, this patient had to undergo corrective surgery to remove all of the hardware and then put in a total knee replacement to fix the problem. The tragedy was that this was totally preventable if an x-ray had been taken during surgery. Watch the video to learn more. Continue reading

We needed the assistance of someone who knew what they were doing. We can spend probably 10 times the amount of time today, creating 2 videos – let alone 50. So, I think when it boils down to it having someone like yourself who knows what they’re doing, has a system in place, and can really kind of work with you to get the videos flowing, get the content going – I think it’s definitely the way to go. I think you’d spend just too much time – too much energy – in trying to do it yourself.
