Dr. Kimball has been treating my left knee for more than a decade with excellent results. He scoped my knee twice and then a few years later a brace was fitted for stability. All of the treatments helped me continue to work my physically demanding job as a TV News Videographer, play golf, garden and exercise. We knew I would ultimately need a total replacement. But when? Dr. Kimball always told me I would know when it was time for a knee replacement. I knew. The quality of my life and work was suffering. It was time for my 57 year old knee to be replaced.
My wife and I talked with Dr. Kimball about the procedure and recovery. We were confident and prepared. We agreed that I would be a good candidate as an outpatient and trusted his advice. I was home in 24 hours. This allowed me a quicker recovery time and ability to start physical therapy sooner. I continue to stretch and maintain an active lifestyle in my daily routine with full flexibility in my knee.
I highly recommend the outpatient procedure. I know it helped me tremendously.
I went back to work, with NO restrictions after only 7 weeks. I had to be at full strength to do my job and I was. I am required to work in every situation and terrain you can image with a video camera, tripod and gear, covering the news. I am occasionally tired and sore after a long day but now I feel ready to go again the next day when in the past it would take several days to recover.
I was playing golf within 6 months and I’m back to gardening. I have no problems doing ANYTHING.
