Cathy - Knee Replacement

I’m an extremely active person. I love to ballroom dance, exercise, chase my kids around and play tennis. You name it, I love to do it!

I suffered multiple knee injuries because of all my activities and had two knee surgeries prior to Dr. Crovetti. I’ve had countless injections on my knees until finally my right knee was bone-on-bone and had severe osteoarthritis. My doctor at that time told me there was nothing else they could do for me and you’re just going to have to live like this. I had asked about knee replacement and was told absolutely not, I was not a candidate for that. I left completely crushed and felt hopeless and didn’t know what to do until a friend recommended Dr. Crovetti.

I made an appointment and he immediately put me at ease. He made me feel comfortable. He reviewed my medical history and said ‘Let’s schedule it and get your life back!’

The Coronado Surgery Suites, the staff, the food and the private rooms were amazing! My husband was able to stay with me the whole time and it was all great.

About four months later I started dancing again and few months later, ran my first 5K. I can now run around with my kids and go to theme parks all day with virtually no pain.

Two years later, my left knee started to go – which I knew was going to happen based on my prior injuries. I went right back to Dr. Crovetti and he treated it passively for about a year with injections until they stopped working. We scheduled another knee replacement and here I am eight months later and I’m brand new again!

I have my life back thanks to Dr. Crovetti. I can do everything again. Most importantly being with my family and be active and not sit on the sidelines observing. I’m forever grateful to Dr. Crovetti for giving me my life back – not once, but twice!
