Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Dr. Sculco, for giving me my quality of life back and performing an incredibly successful total knee replacement on this unusually young patient. These past six years dealing with seven prior surgeries and regenerative stem cell procedures first due to injury, and then life-threatening infection as a complication from lupus, have been so hard on my physical and mental well-being. Now, I can finally start feeling and living like a real twenty-something. Thank you for not being afraid of my complicated case and my young age to give me this surgery, and going in with such confidence and compassion that is often hard to find. I am currently 3.5 months out of surgery and doing the unimaginable; fully functional, lifting weights, and now attending graduate school in New York City where before, I could barely make it up a set of steps or walk around the block. I'm honored to have been treated by the Surgeon-in-Chief Emeritus of this world renowned hospital and I am truly blessed. Cheers to a new life, a new knee, and being pain free.
