Pain free after knee replacement surgery

David Allan


David: When I was younger, I had a football injury. I kept ignoring it and ignoring it. Pain kept getting worse, worse. It got to the point that I was in so much pain that I could hardly sit on the couch without literally crying.

I ended up at Summa Health and met Dr. Pfefferle. He recommended total knee replacement on my right knee.

The staff at Summa Barberton, where I had my surgery, was unbelievable. I can't say enough about them, they're five star.

The kind of person Dr. Pfefferle is you would consider him one of your family. There are doctors you like, I love Dr. Pfefferle.

As far as the pain goes, I had a nerve block, a pain ball, and eventually, it's going to be a narcotic-free surgery.

Ten months after surgery, I can ride my bike, I can play basketball, I walk my dog, I walk 10,000 plus steps a day. It's unbelievable.
