I can’t remember the last time I enjoyed such peace and quiet.

Stephanie Sampson, Patient

I was training for a half marathon with my daughter when my knee pain became unbearable. I went to see Joseph Burkhardt, DO, an orthopedic surgeon at Bronson Orthopedic Specialists. X-rays revealed my knee cartilage was completely gone. I’m young for a knee replacement, but there was no other option. I’m a mother of six. Life is hectic. I’m always looking after everyone. Now I was the one being looked after. The nurses are so dedicated. I can’t remember the last time I enjoyed such peace and quiet. Although Joint Camp was tough I had the support I needed to flourish. Dr. Burkhardt told me that when he saw the damage to my knee during surgery he couldn’t believe how long I put up with it. I just hope others experiencing this severe level of pain realize they can get help, too.
