Dear Doctor Sculco,
On September 27, 2017 you performed bilateral knee replacement surgery on me. Thank you very much for all of your time & efforts! You and your team made the entire experience very pleasant & relaxing for me. For the people who had heard horror stories about complications & pain, I can honestly say that everything went extremely smooth & I did not feel any pain! I lived with pain and inflammation for 20 years which progressively became worse until I saw you. You found all my cartilage gone in both knees and deformed with bowing at the knee. I had been living on anti-inflammatories & pain killers for the past 9 years just to get through the day.You have given me a life back that I had forgotten about.
More importantly to me, earlier in June of 2017, you also replaced my daughter Brittany's knee. After an ACL replacement followed by 7 additional surgeries due to infection, my 23-year-old daughter was left with a knee worse than mine & completely bone on bone. Nothing hurts a parent more than watching a child live in complete pain day after day, especially when one cannot do anything to change it. You were an answer to prayers & an angel sent from above. After seeing other doctors who refused to help us, somehow we found you and you saw her immediately. You were willing to take such a young patient that had a bad history with her knee plus having Lupus that others in your profession ignored. Needless to say, the surgery was completely successful with a remarkable recovery! Words alone could never begin to express my wife’s & my thankfulness & gratitude for what you did for Brittany. You gave her back her life! She was crippled by the old knee & you restored her quality of life! Thank you so very very much for helping our family!!!
