I had been in constant pain for over ten years. I had a really bad accident that left me with meniscus tears and ligament damages in both knees. I at the time thought I had a good surgeon who did injections, nerve blocks, and multiple surgeries on both knees. I ended up seeing MANY different doctors, numerous therapies, more injections, and eventually it left me crippled. I was in constant pain, on heavy painkillers, and I could not walk far. I had the worst time getting up off of chair, this made my life very hard. I could no longer enjoy the things I used to. I could not even go to the beach, the sand would be unbearable. I was 48 going on 100! I became very bowlegged and was so embarrassed. My mom told me she learned of this doctor who is supposed to be the best on the island, he did knee surgery on her boss, and worked with a friend of a friend and he is very brilliant. I did ask around, my PCP and Rheumatologist, and dermatologist all knew of him and said he is a really good doctor, they said I would get good care but I would pay out off pocket with the hopes of getting reimbursed later, I could easily find another doctor that could do a knee replacement, but the pain and agony I was in, I WANTED THE BEST OF THE BEST! I could not afford not to have the best of the best. When I met Dr. Kane, he understood me, he got me, he described my life, I had no quality, after all it is the quality of our life not the quantity that we all strive for right? I broke down in his office and cried, Dr. Kane and his staff are very compassionate, they are very caring. They have so much experience and knowledge, I knew I finally found my miracle worker. I will be honest, a double TKR is not a walk in the park, the first 3 days were the worst. Dr. Kane has connections as well, he brought his A Team to the operating room. From the anesthesiologist, assistant surgeons, nurses and staff, I was in excellent hands. I was sent to the Rehab hospital to help me with my recovery, and even there, I received the best care. I will forever be grateful for all the care I received. I have no regrets. My legs, both legs are straight! I can now walk without grabbing a shopping cart, rail, or crutches and I can enjoy the beach again. I went back to work in 3 weeks! To see my before and after xrays, what a difference.
Dr. Kane, Jane, and Wendy - I love you and will forever be grateful for giving me my quality of life back! Thank you for taking such good care of me!
