Dancing without arthritis pain after foot surgery

Kay Cooper


Kay: I'm a pretty active person. I play golf. I do aerobics. I do yoga. The arthritis pain in my big toe was stopping me from doing the things that I wanted to do.

My hairdresser, who had exactly the same arthritis condition in her toe, referred me to Dr. Junko at Summa Health. He suggested surgery to correct the arthritic condition.

Dr. Junko was amazing and the staff at Summa Barberton was exceptional.

The pain for me was minimal. They gave me a pain block that lasted 36 hours and then a pain pump.

Life now after surgery, I'm back to power walking, aerobics classes, and best of all, at my high school reunion last weekend, I actually danced.
