"After having major knee reconstruction surgery back in high school, I have been living with knee pain on and off for close to 40 years, and more recently the pain has been mostly ON, in fact ON constantly. It had gotten bad enough that my wife told me that it was time for a bi-lateral knee replacement because my once very active athletic/recreation life was becoming a lot less active.
Dr. Gallagaher had performed several knee scopes in the past 15 years to help me manage my knee issues and confirmed it was probably time to consider knee replacements.
While challenging, the surgery, postsurgery recovery, rehab, and follow-up checks were done very professionally with a very patient- centered approach that was appreciated. It was clearly reinforced to me through the actions and words of Dr. Gallagher that there was not a one-size-fits-all approach to the surgery or the post-op care. I was clearly treated and seen as an individual with my own knee history and my own challenges.
I am definitely living with much less pain and can be a whole lot more active. I am 10 and 1/2 months out from my surgery and am very pleased with the outcome!" -- William J.
