Frances Ward – Knee Revision and Replacement

IMG_0043
I want to say how thankful I am to have Dr. Burrow as my surgeon. I had suffered with arthritis in both knees for several years. Unfortunately, at the time I decided to have my right knee replaced, I went to another surgeon at a different Orthopedic Group. What an awful mistake. That physician botched my total knee replacement in a 45 minute surgery.

After doing some checking around, I was referred to Dr. Burrow. After getting x-rays and being examined by Dr. Burrow, he informed me that he could do revision surgery and replace everything from the previous surgery. Dr. Burrow made no guarantee, but told me that if I would do my part after surgery, he would do his part to repair my knee. He made me feel very confident that he could help me.

On April 29, 2014 , Dr. Burrow performed the revision surgery. Months after the surgery, I experienced an extreme amount of scar tissue, which I am prone to. Because of the buildup of scar tissue, I was left with a limp, back and hip pain. Again with no guarantee, Dr. Burrow informed me what he could do, and the rest would be up to me. On March 21, 2016, Dr. Burrow removed the excessive scar tissue. After going through physical therapy, I can finally say that I have my life back to normal, I can extend and bend my knee, with no more limping.

Not only did Dr. Burrow repair my right knee, but on September 1, 2015, he did a total knee replacement on my left knee. I spent one night at Mary Immaculate Hospital before going home. From the time I got home and began working with the Physical Therapists, I did not have any problems with my left knee.

I am so thankful to have Dr. Burrow as my surgeon. He is not only a gifted surgeon, but he cares about his patients. I would recommend him to anyone I come in contact with, that is in need of an excellent and gifted surgeon.
