Gary Rosenberger - Partial Knee Replacement
Gary Rosenberg’s mind was made up. Yeah, he was 62, but age
and a balky knee wouldn’t slow down this long-distance runner, cyclist, and
overall fitness fanatic.
Gary’s right knee was the problem. Minor surgeries and
cortisone injections weren’t working. It was harder to run and ride his bike.
He thought Visalia orthopedic surgeon Dr. Ian Duncan
“I was hoping he could just clean out the knee again and I’d
be on my merry way,” Gary said. “But Dr. Duncan showed me the X-rays of my
knee. It was bone on bone.”
Instead of a total knee replacement, whose long recovery would
have separated Gary from his bicycle for months, Dr. Duncan performed a partial
knee replacement. A patient exam and x-rays revealed arthritis was localized to
one area, so Gary was a good fit, Dr. Duncan said.
Three weeks after surgery Gary was back on his bike.
he rides over 400 miles weekly with no pain.
