Knee Patient

Steve W. — Total Knee Replacement

Hiking the mountains of North Carolina was what Dr. Biggs promised I would be able to do — after a total knee replacement. And, on August 31st, less than four months post total knee replacement, I did exactly that. After much needed physical therapy, continued self-paced range-of-motion exercises, and strength training, I have proof of the success of my new left knee. Now that I can climb just about any mountain in North Carolina, I need to find time to work on my golf game!

Ed — Total Knee Patient

Prior to the implants, my wife and I took a 16-day ground tour of Turkey. I walked on every possible type of ground, steps washed away by time. Each day my knee pain increased to a point that pain medication was little help. I promised my wife that when we returned to Fort Myers, my first stop would be to an Orthopaedic Surgeon. After much research I chose Dr. K. Biggs.

I met with Dr. Biggs, and after x-rays and examination it was concluded that the total knee was the proper procedure. My first knee was replaced on June 14, 2007. The left knee was replaced on August 1, 2007. My therapy on both knees proceeded and total full use was accomplished.

My wife and I just returned from a 73-day cruise around Africa. We visited many countries, walked each tour without pain. Each day on the ship for breakfast and lunch I climbed up and down 6 flights of stairs to continue to strengthen both knees. On one tour we rode camels in the Sahara Desert. I wish now that I had replaced the knees much earlier.
