Great experience, and so far, excellent outcome!

Mark, Bronson Employee

It is now three weeks since I had a robotic-assisted partial knee replacement at Bronson Battle Creek – and I am IMPRESSED! Dr. Joe Burkhardt was my surgeon and was terrific. All parts of the Bronson Battle Creek experience from registration, to surgery prep, anesthesia, operating room team, recovery and physical therapy were excellent.

I knew relatively little about partial knee replacement until recently, but for me it was a beautiful option: (1) No hospital stay, (2) very manageable pain, and (3) rapid recovery. The partial knee replacement surgery was outpatient so I was home and resting comfortably by mid-afternoon on the day of surgery. I was immediately active and used a walker in my home for a day or two . . . then began to walk with the use of a cane. At one week I began working half-days with the other half-day spent at home elevating my leg, using a cold compression unit and light therapy. At three weeks I am full-time and almost pain free. I am doing some physical therapy to regain range-of-motion and to strengthen the leg.

Great experience, and so far, excellent outcome!
