Lisa's Knee Replacement Surgery

Lisa underwent knee replacement surgery, performed by Dr. Richard Illgen. Here's her story:

Lisa at workMy PT says he's never seen anyone recover as fast as I did. Most of the credit goes to my surgeon, Dr. Illgen, who has a stellar reputation. The other determining factor was doing my exercises! For two months before surgery, I did the recommended exercises for knee replacement and added another 20 minutes of core exercises.


After surgery, I followed the recovery plan exactly, stayed mobile and exercised. Voila! I can walk again! Up and down stairs and around the block like a normal person. I can carry more than 10 pounds again without my knee collapsing.


Having my knee replaced is the highlight of this century - so far. Good luck! And do your exercises.
