Thank you for giving me back the greatest joy in my life


 

Thanks to Dr. Honkala, the Joint Care Center, Rehab Unit and Outpatient Physical Therapy at Jefferson Regional Medical Center, I am pain free.  I am able to walk with my grandson and ride a bike for 30 minutes each day without pain.  I can go up and down steps without pain and I feel like I have been given a new lease on life.  I am looking forward to walks, amusement parks, and vacations with my family and this will all be possible because I am pain free and more active than I have been in the past two years.  Thank you for giving me back the greatest joy in my life, quality time with my family.

I need to have my other knee replaced soon and my plan is to come to Jefferson again.


 

When it came time to have my first knee replacement, knowing that my health insurance allows for my choice of many facilities, I chose Jefferson Regional Medical Center.  Living in Elizabeth Township, Jefferson offers easy access for me and my family. 

The preparation provided by the hospital was very helpful. The “total joint class” that was held at JRMC prior to my surgery was wonderful.  On hindsight I am so pleased that I attended.   They told us what to expect in the hospital and gave us helpful hints about home recovery. I recommend this as a not-to-miss class. 

The day of surgery went smoothly, from the preop time through the recovery room.  I believe that the surgical department at Jefferson is one of the best from a patient’s perspective. The nurses and staff working in the Joint Care Center were more than helpful and very approachable.  They made me feel like a person who happened to have surgery rather than a disease with a face.  The physical therapy department had great expectations for me and was very encouraging.  It worked because my knee is so much better now!  On the day of surgery there was no way you could have convinced me I would be going home in a few short days, but with everyone’s care and encouragement I was very ready to go home on time.  

I need to have my other knee replaced soon and my plan is to come to Jefferson again.
