CINCINNATI (WKRC) – Local surgeons are getting some high-tech help to help patients heal. It’s all part of a pilot study at Beacon Orthopaedics.
The team there is one of the first in the country to participate in this new study.
After years in pain, Cindy Price just had her second knee joint replaced. She says this rehabilitation is going much better than the first. That’s because, as her orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Haleem Chaudhary said, she knew what to expect and what questions to ask.
Former Cincinnati Reds player and five-time all-star George Foster wasn’t ready to slow down when he started having trouble with his hip. Luckily, he didn’t have to.
“I was having complications with it for probably a year or two but didn’t know what it was,” Foster said. “I was thinking that it was in the muscle and never thought it was the hip itself because I had taken an MRI and it didn’t show that. I was very active playing golf, playing tennis. I have a baseball team, so I was in a lot of batting practice too and hitting front goals. Then I started limiting what I could do because I didn’t have as much mobility.”
