John M.

I had been seeing Dr. Asp for a good amount of time (15+ years) in which I was receiving injections. As mentioned, this went on for quite a long period of time. I did the injections as I was not mentally ready/prepared for the replacement. Finally, in the beginning of 2017, I had made the decision to begin the total knee replacement because I really couldn’t stand the constant pain. I scheduled my first replacement on my right knee (the worst of the two) and became totally ready. March came, I was anxious for the pain to be removed and ready for strenuous rehab and therapy to get up and about. I hit a snag in the therapy when I couldn’t get beyond the 80 degree bend due to a build-up of scar tissue. So a manipulation procedure was suggested and performed by Dr. Asp. Days later, I was pedaling full motion on the bike and my bend had increased to 105 degrees with continued physical therapy (Courtney was amazing). My bend was nearing 120 degrees and my straightening was near 0 degrees. With all this happening, I knew I could go through another surgery to have my left knee repaired and through the skillful hands of Dr. Asp and his team (and the grace of god) I am happy to say that I am totally pain free and walking without any limitations and much to the delight of my wife, Lisa. Thank you Dr. Asp and the entire team at TCO. I am always quick to call out your names to refer people. Thank you and best regards, John M.
