Jeff No Longer Has Chronic Knee Pain
For almost 25 years, Jeff lived with chronic pain in his right knee. He had severe arthritis so after 3-4 hours, the pain would be unbearable and Jeff would take Tylenol or other over-the-counter medicine to get relief. Jeff knew he would eventually need a knee replacement, but over a year ago he heard about cooled radiofrequency ablation, a minimally invasive procedure that offers pain relief. Dr. Alan Halpern with Bronson Orthopedic & Joint Specialists –Turwill Lane performed the outpatient procedure at Bronson LakeView Hospital. Afterwards, Jeff was able to live with minimal pain for over a year. He was so pleased with the pain relief, he decided to go back to Dr. Halpern and have him perform cooled radiofrequency ablation on his knee again.
Jeff says “Dr. Halpern is great. He did what I needed him to do. He gave me the choice. When I went back a second time, again, he did what he said he was going to do.”
