This is hard for me to write. I’ve always known that my legs where crooked. I had such a desire to fix them. Over the last 15 years I’ve been to five orthopedic surgeons, and their solution to the problem was to wait for it to get worse and then get a knee replacement. The question that kept nagging me is why should I wait for something that is relatively healthy to deteriorate? I started research on the internet, and Dr. Rozbruch’s name kept coming up.
Out of sheer curiosity and frustration I decided to make an appointment with Dr. Rozbruch. I drove from Boston for the day. I figured, "What have I got to lose?" Dr. Rozbruch understood where I was coming from and explained to me that it will get worse with time if the knee is not aligned. I spoke with couple of his patients and I decided that I either correct my knees now that I’m younger and healthier or get a knee replacement when I’m older and the healing will be that much harder.
I did my surgery 3 months ago. The minute I woke up I had straight legs! The first six weeks were as expected, but then the next 6 Weeks were a little tougher. However, the improvements and mobility was super fast. Within 6-13 weeks I can walk 4 miles continuously, ride a bike, take a Barre class, and you can see that it’s only going to get better from here.
I decided to do both legs at the same time. Really not as bad as you think. Your body image and self confidence will sky rocket. If you have the stamina & desire to correct your knees, honestly this operation is not that as hard or painful as you might think.
