Rebecca experienced debilitating knee pain She was forced to watch her family enjoy vacation time rather than be an active participant. Instead of hiking, swimming and fishing with her family, she spent her vacations in a chair. Taking care of her grandchildren became difficult.
Joint pain was affecting her quality of life.
She decided to see her orthopaedic surgeon, who recommended knee replacement surgery with the ATTUNE® Knee System.
The ATTUNE Knee System has helped her get back to living an active life Just two days after surgery, Rebecca was home from the hospital. Today, Rebecca is back at work and able to move around her garden and play with her grandchildren with confidence.
