Passionate Runner Overcomes Knee Pain with HemiCAP

Terri & Letia meeting in Boston!

Terri, who lives in Colorado, used to run almost every day. She endured many injuries popular to runners, such as plantar fasciitis, shin splints and achilles tendonitis, just to name a few. Despite her injuries, she continued to run, until one Sunday morning when she awoke with a severely swollen and painful knee. She immediately went to see Dr. Hanson at the Hanson Orthopedic Clinic in Pueblo West, CO (they are open 7 days a week).

Because of her knee pain, Dr. Hanson told Terri she was a candidate for a knee resurfacing procedure due to the damage under her kneecap. They discussed different treatment options including the PF Wave HemiCAP implant. Not entirely convinced that this was the right decision, Terri called us directly. She asked to speak to a similarly active patient who underwent the same procedure. We were able to connect Terri with Letia, from Boston, MA. After speaking and meeting up in-person, Terri decided to go ahead with the Knee HemiCAP surgery! Over eight months later, Terri is back to running over 6 miles a day and couldn’t be happier with her decision! Watch her full story here:
