My surgery was the most amazing experience ever! In fact, two weeks after my first knee replacement, I called and scheduled my other knee replacement! Dr. Poole uses state-up-the art methods. Because of the 6 day pain block he administers, I didn't have the horrible pain I'd heard comes with full knee replacements. Because of a new healing method he uses, I hardly have scares that are noticeable. From the moment I met him, I felt listened to and taken care of and positive that this would be a good experience. And the night before the surgeries, HE called me to check in with me. HE called me, not an assistant. My husband and I were amazed! Who does that anymore? I have put up with bone on bone knees and severe pain for more than 20 years. It's been 8 months since my first replacement and 2 months since my second. I am now able to walk, ride a bike, do yoga and actually get up out a chair without pain! I feel reborn.
