After HSS surgery for a revision of a partial right knee replacement (the partial was not performed at HSS) to a total knee replacement (TKR) in 2015, and after a left knee TKR at HSS in 2016, I began playing PickleBall.

I continue to play PickleBall about five times per week and have progressed to playing in tournaments, most recently the New Jersey Senior PickleBall Olympics. I also compete in tournaments in Naples, Florida and plan to register for the PickleBall US Open in April 2020.

I would not be able to achieve this level of exercise and fun at age 74 had it not been for the two TKRs performed by Dr. Westrich at HSS.
