I couldn't sleep at night because the pain kept me awake....Now, I can sleep at night. That's the biggest thing.

After 12 years of living with knee pain that greatly limited her life, Greta had a bi-lateral knee replacement at Community Hospital South, near her home. Orthopedic surgeon Kevin Julian, MD, worked with her other physicians to determine she was a candidate to have both knees replaced at the same time. Of her experience at Community Greta says, "They made me feel like I was their only patient; that I was a hundred percent the only thing that they cared about."

After successful surgery and rehabilitation at the hospital and at home, Greta is pain free for the first time in 12 years. She says, "I can tell you that even though there's nothing fun about surgery, it was not the worst days I ever had. Most of the days in the past 12 years were worse than anything I had after surgery."

Soon after surgery, she and her husband vacationed to Gatlinburg, TN and hiked numerous trails.

She encourages anyone who has knee pain to take action and get the surgery done now: "I just can't imagine what I've missed in the past 12 years."
