don't think anyone decides to have knee replacement surgery until they
dread every step. My pain not only affected me, but also affected my
family and friends because we could no longer enjoy activities we used
to do together. After speaking with my physician, Dr. Johnson, about
joint replacement surgery and the possibility of returning to the
activities I loved, I started looking forward to living again. Because
of my knee replacement, I am able to garden again go to places like Sea
World, and take 3 mile hikes! I cannot say enough about the excellent
nursing staff, occupational and physical therapists, or the dozens of
others who worked with me before, during and after my surgeries. The
knee replacement class I attended completely prepared me for what lie
ahead and Dr. Johnson's approach to pain management was phenomenal. It
is comforting to know we have such an excellent hospital so close to
home. Thank you, for giving me my life back!
suffered from osteoarthritis pain for many years before pursuing
surgery because I kept hoping the problem would eventually get better. I
finally decided to seek the help of Dr. Johnson after the pain became
severe enought to make me give up on my position as a docent at a local
art museum because I could no longer walk or climb stairs. After having
both of my knees replaced, I am pain free and back to doing the
activities I love. Not only am I able to lead museum tours, go to the
gym, take long walks and swim again, I have also lost 35 pounds due to
the increased mobility I gained from the procedure! I cannot say enough
about my physician, his post-surgery pain control plan, or Parker
Adventist Hospital. Dr. Johnson is such a caring and wonderful person
who explained everything I needed to know about the procedure, and the
post-operative physical therapy he recommended was worth every minute of
my time. The hospital is top-notch, and the staff is wonderful! My
advice is to not put surgery off as long as I did. I could have been
healthier and enjoying life years ago!
