“Before my surgery, I was in constant pain. My quality of life was, like, 30%. I had to limit what I was doing. I was not able to fully participate in the kids' education. And it was just very difficult for me as a teacher. So I had to make a decision.
I found Memorial Hermann Joint Center through my PCP. I was very at ease. Just the entire atmosphere, it was very warm. It was the most amazing experience ever.
There was no pain.
I walked the same day as my knee replacement. And I've been walking ever since, so much so I am the new wellness coach, because I can do the exercises. I'm able to fully participate. I feel like, from the bottom half, I'm 20, and the top half, I love being 50.
I tell everyone to go to Memorial Hermann Joint Center, because you're a person and not a patient.”
