Irene Passani

Before her surgery, the pain in Irene’s knee was so agonizing that she couldn’t do many of the things she loved, which included running, biking, and kickboxing. Irene received a Conformis iUni partial knee replacement in her right knee. Post-surgery, Irene is back biking three to four times a week and kickboxing.

Rhianna Ryer

As a spin, dance and yoga instructor, Rhianna was used to a high level of activity before her arthritis became bone-on-bone. When she could no longer make it through a class, or even drive between studios without stopping to ice her knee, Rhianna discussed the option of a total knee replacement with her surgeon.

Cal Wood

Cal is a cattle rancher who struggled for 10 years with debilitating knee pain. His osteoarthritis became so bad that he couldn’t perform daily tasks – his pain on a “level from 1 to 10 was a 12”. After surgery, Cal is now able to enjoy his time on the cattle ranch and the golf course again.

Marilyn Dodd

Marilyn is an avid CrossFit enthusiast. After a car accident left her with debilitating knee pain, she was unable to do the things she wanted to do. Since her surgery, she has been able to return to her daily life without worrying about her knee pain.
