Fred Carpenter - See his Joint Center story


Fred Carpenter – Joint Center patient story

I'd say my life was really great up until my 50s. And then I started experiencing knee pain.

Then last fall, my wife and I went up to visit our grandkids. We were on a long walk and I couldn't finish the walk. And I sat down and said, OK, it's time.

I have a friend who's an orthopedic surgeon. And when I asked, who would you recommend, he said the Memorial Hermann Joint Center. I would give Memorial Hermann-- the whole system-- the highest marks. From the very beginning to the very end, it was really focused on helping the patient to-- no pun intended--but to walk through it.
