LIFE WITH KNEE PAIN – OPTIONS

Sherry knew that she needed help for her knee.  X-rays showed bone on bone degeneration in her right knee.  She had tried non-invasive injections and ibuprofen to mask the pain, but after suffering for four years, Sherry scheduled the big one: A FULL KNEE REPLACEMENT.

Although she knew she needed a surgical solution, Sherry was disappointed with the realities of a full knee replacement.

She knew:

  • she would endure a long intense recovery,
  • she would lose natural supporting ligaments and stability, and
  • that statistically she faced possible full knee replacement failure.

But then she heard about Avnew Health and ROBOTIC-ASSISTED PARTIAL KNEE RESURFACING.

Avnew Health is a care coordination company that would allow her to:

  • save money,
  • be treated to a first class medical tourism experience in the US, and most importantly
  • have her knee restored using medical technology by a top specialist.

An Avnew Health care coordinator showed Sherry that she had more OPTIONS than those offered to her locally.  Avnew Health offers access to the latest in robotic-assisted technology, experienced surgeons, through medical tourism.  Sherry sent her x-rays to Avnew to see if she could be a candidate for the partial knee resurfacing that 60% of those undergoing a full knee replacement are eligible for.  She was!  Sherry’s partial knee resurfacing would be confined to her lateral compartment.

Her procedure would allow her to:

  • keep supporting ligaments,
  • rebuild the damaged portion of her knee, and
  • restore her natural range of motion.

Sherry chose a robotic-assisted partial knee resurfacing with Avnew Health and cancelled her full knee replacement.
