Didn’t Have to Wait – A Patient Story

“I can’t say enough how glad I am to have had Dr. Kassman do my left knee replacement.  I had seen an orthopedic surgeon in Canada who told me that I wouldn’t have more than 90 degrees of flexion and would never be able to kneel on my knee, plus I had a wait time of almost a year to have the knee replacement.  To say the least, I wasn’t happy at all with that so I did some research and found Dr. Kassman. 

It’s been 8 months since my knee replacement and I have more flexion in my replaced knee than I had before the surgery and more flexion in my replaced knee than my non-replaced knee.  I can also kneel on the replaced knee and, although it feels a little weird, I have no pain when kneeling. 

I did all the exercises every day and sometimes twice a day for the first month as Scott, the physiotherapist, suggested and I feel that really made a difference in my quick recovery.  He is truly a gem.  The surgical center was wonderful and sure appreciated the attention to cleanliness.”
