CHRONIC PAIN IN BOTH KNEES
PHYSICIAN: KENT WOO, MD
For several years I had been living with pain in both of my knees. My doctor had tried different oral medications and injections it would be very short term relief if any. Not to mention the fortune I’ve spent in over the counter pain relief remedies. Last year the pain became unbearable and I knew I needed to see an orthopedic doctor.
Two years ago my husband, Charles, had a hip replacement done by Dr. Whelan. As boys they had been neighborhood friends. So we asked him and his staff which doctor to see regarding my knees. Dr. Kent Woo was highly recommended not only by a colleague but several of our friends were patients and sang his praises.
My first appointment was in December, 2012 with Dr. Woo and immediately he knew surgery was the only option there was to relieve the pain. He recommended to do total knee replacements one now and the other in six months. I asked if I would be a candidate to have them both done at one time and he assured me that would be possible.
My bi-lateral total knee replacement surgery was February 25, 2013 at Optim Medical Center-Tattnall in Reidsville, GA. The care and excellent service I received was awesome. I was amazed with finding a place where everyone was so compassionate and professional. That is rare in today’s society.
My recovery and therapy have been remarkable and I am able to walk again without pain. I am so thankful to Dr. Woo and the entire staff of Optim Medical Center-Tattnall of Reidsville for making my experience so great. I highly recommend Optim for all your orthopedic needs.
