Most of my life, I have been active from sports in my youth to simply running and walking as I have gracefully gotten older. After a while, I began to feel the years of wear and tear on my left knee.
I had always been aware of Andrews Sports Medicine and the great work that they have done in working with athletes. Therefore, I scheduled an appointment and made the two-hour drive to Birmingham.
My initial appointment was with Dr. Samuel Goldstein, orthopaedic surgeon, who evaluated my knee and recommended that I see Dr. James Flanagan Jr., another surgeon in the practice, for a total knee replacement.
It has been a year since my knee replacement and I am already scheduled to have my right knee replaced. I was very impressed with the care I received from Dr. Flanagan, his team and the medical staff at St. Vincent’s Birmingham.
I am looking forward to the future in traveling to new places with my wife and hiking walking trails together with my new and improved left and right knees.
