I had a left knee replacement in September 2020 and my right knee was done in September 2022. Both knee replacements were completed by Dr. Owen O’Neill. First of all, his team is exceptional! His care team called me at home to address questions I sent via email. His care coordinator, Ann, is the best in the business! They had fast replies to my questions, even when I stated it wasn’t an emergency. After my left knee surgery, I was hitting golf balls in the garage after two months and golfing in Florida after three months. With my right knee, I am playing pickleball and golfing in the simulator after two months.
As those of you who have had knee replacements know, it’s a tough few weeks but it’s well worth it! Stick to your physical therapy. I doubled up on PT at home, going above what they advised, and bought a cheap stationary bike to improve my range of motion. I’m looking forward to walking 18 holes again in the summer. If you’re thinking of getting knee replacement, don’t wait! I can’t recommend Dr. O’Neill, Isabel and Ann enough! They’re the best. I should mention, I’ve seen some ugly scars when people have a knee replacement, but my scars are barely noticeable because Dr. O’Neil uses glue instead of staples. That’s just another reason to choose him!
