Dear Doctor Stolarski,
I would like to volunteer to be your Knee Replacement Poster Boy, at the tender age of seventy-one.
Seriously, I am writing to update you on my experience and recovery from a total knee replacement that you performed on August 25, 2011. My experience with you and your staff from the very onset was extremely positive. That included my office visits, pre-surgery visits, surgery, post-op. rehabilitation and physical therapy.
I was hoping that the surgery would enable me to return to a more active, pain-free lifestyle, that included tennis and golf. Within two months I was back playing golf, and within three months I was able to play doubles tennis. When I inquired about the possibility of downhill skiing, you gave me a green (yellow?) light that I should be able to, if I skied conservatively and avoided moguls.
Over the Christmas holiday Gust four months after surgery) I joined my sons and families in Utah for a ski vacation, not knowing if I would last an hour or a day. In fact, I lasted the full three days, each day skiing more aggressively and confidently. I was amazed at how well the new knee performed. It had been years since I had skied without pain, and had actually given up the sport a couple of years ago because the pain was too severe and the joint too weak.
In summary, I cannot thank you enough for all that you did for me. My new knee Is straighter and stronger than ever, and devoid of all pain----an affliction I had reluctantly accepted for fifty years, ever since I injured it in a serious automobile accident. Thank you for restoring the quality of my life, and please feel free to use this endorsement in any way that you deem appropriate.
