After serving as a firefighter for 27 1/2 years, it’s easy to see how I would start having joint problems - more specifically in my knees. The gear I had to wear, the rigorous training, and the overall demands of the job wore my knees out. In the last 15 years the pain has gotten consistently worse.
I had gone down other routes to try and help my knee arthritis -- anti-inflammatory drugs, injection therapy, and even modifying my everyday activities. But nothing was a permanent solution and the pain had gotten so bad until September 2018, when I came to Andrews Sports Medicine to see Dr. David Moore.
After a thorough discussion with Dr. Moore, we decided I would undergo a partial knee replacement. On September 12, 2018 I went into surgery and came out feeling like a brand-new man!
To give you a timeframe on how well my healing went, my surgery was on a Wednesday. The walker I had been using to help myself get around was put up that Saturday and my wife and I were back in the gym doing CrossFit together that Monday morning!
I now live a pain-free life and I appreciate Andrews Sports Medicine so much for helping me get that back.
Dr. Moore did such a good job that I highly recommend Dr. Moore to anyone who could use him!
Thank you, Dr. Moore and the team at Andrews Sports Medicine!
