He gave me my life back… …It’s been incredible. My surgery went perfect.
It’s a godsend. It’s like you win the knee lottery—you can’t imagine a better gift to be given than a surgeon’s time. They open the doors and say ‘We got the cost, you just focus on getting well.’
Dr. Rathjen is the nicest, most compassionate man I’ve ever met; I could tell he really empathized with my situation and his whole call was to restore my quality of life.
There’s pain involved for sure, but I could tell the first time I put weight on my knee that the pain wasn’t the same I’d had, it was just the surgery site—I’m a totally different person now.
