If my knee will stay as strong as it is now, I basically consider it a miracle. And, I realize that this is thanks to you.
Thank you again!

My knee pain stopped me from so many wonderful activities and opportunities. I’ve now started up skiing again, and am acting and modeling. You did a wonderful job and saved me from years of pain to come.

Love, Caitlin L.
