MAKOplasty Partial Knee Replacement is Changing Lives at Hillcrest

What do you do when pain takes you away from your job and doing what you love? Unfortunately, that is the case for millions of Americans living with chronic and persistent knee pain. It is debilitating, forcing some to earlier retirement, withdraw from hobbies and trying to find a new way to live as their mobility continues to decrease. Knee pain has led to 4.7 million replacement surgeries in the U.S. as patients seek to reduce pain and restore function, according to recent data. At Hillcrest Medical Center, a new, less invasive knee replacement surgery now available – MAKOplasty partial knee replacement – gives patients an option with less recovery time to help them get back to work, fun and life. Here are a few patients sharing their story.

Tamie McDermott is a nurse and spends up to 14 hours on her feet. It is a job she loves, but one she thought she may not be able to do when her knee pain got to the point she could no longer stand for hours or even several minutes at a time. When Tamie discovered MAKOplasty partial knee replacement at Hillcrest, she knew she had to learn more. Watch her story here: //hillcrestmedicalcenter.com/blog/career-nursing-nearly-sidelined-k...

Georgia Ladd has collected sentimental items for her garden over several decades. She can tell you a story about each one. Georgia works throughout the year to create a space she and her family can enjoy together. It is a hobby she truly loves. However, bending down and getting on her knees to care for her garden became too difficult when her knee pain continued to worsen. Within six weeks of MAKOplasty partial knee replacement surgery, Georgia was back in the garden watering and clipping away at weeds.
