My knee issues came about because of development of osteoarthritis over the years. They were bone on bone, causing much discomfort and my quality of life was greatly affected.
Dr. Arrojas was highly recommended by two friends with similar issues and successful surgical outcomes. I decided to consult with Dr. Arrojas, who had recently joined the Rothman team here in Orlando, Florida. I was very impressed with his knowledge of the computer assisted MAKO knee replacement procedure and he answered all my questions thoroughly. As a result of my consultation with Dr. Arrojas, I approached the surgeries with the utmost confidence. My left knee replacement was in December, 2020 and my right knee was completed in March, 2021.
Dr. Arrojas and his entire surgical and aftercare team provided me with excellent care. I really appreciated the follow up calls at home and the support provided by all members of the team at Advent Health in Winter Park, Florida.
Within two to three weeks, I was walking without any assistance. After my second surgery, I noticed I was able to climb and descend stairs with confidence and enjoyed walking longer distances without any pain. Trips to Home Depot have become a joy once again! At 82 years young, I am looking forward to playing many rounds of golf and enjoying my passion for flying in sport aviation.
I would say to anyone in the Orlando, Florida area contemplating hip/knee replacement surgery to contact Dr. Arrojas with Rothman Orthopaedics. I wish I had done this sooner. Also, the time and effort put in after surgery is key. Physical therapy is vital and home exercise has been critical to my successful rehab. My exercise routines have become habits which I will continue. Being pain free and mobile is a blessing and a gift!
