“I reached my goal of being able to walk normally and dance normally and move about my regular life. I’m only 61. I expect to be dancing for at least another 20 years.”
Prior to surgery, MaryEllen did a lot of dancing and hiking. In fact, she even taught two Scottish country dance classes. Over the years, she developed pain in her knees and eventually, the pain became so severe she couldn’t walk, dance, or get out of a chair by herself. MaryEllen tried many treatment options to relieve the pain, including cortisone shots and hyaluronic acid injections.
Six weeks after seeing her doctor about her continued pain, MaryEllen received a ConforMIS iTotal® in her right and left knee. Just days after surgery she was off her walker and she is now back walking and dancing normally.
