Life after a Total Knee Replacement

Life after a Total Knee Replacement


A previous orthopedic patient herself, Jennifer McKelva– now a Physician Assistant for Dr. Raabe and the Orthopedic Spine Team, is out doing what she loves. After a car accident many years ago, Jennifer had to have several hip and knee surgeries. Dr. Goodfried performed a total knee replacement for her in 2015. Searching for a low-impact exercise, Jennifer began cycling. One-month post operation, she made a 12- mile ride!

Here’s Jennifer, along with her friends at family, riding a “casual” 35 miles at the Cotton Patch Challenge in Greenville, Texas, last weekend. So great to see Jennifer doing what she loves and proving there is life after an injury. Way to go, Jenn! #cycling #getoutside #justdoit #orthopedic_surgery #dowhatyoulove #DemandAzalea #DrGoodfried
