Honore Ashcraft’s knee pain impacted her mobility and quality of life for years. Upon meeting Scott Wingerter, M.D., board-certified orthopedic surgeon at Dickson-Diveley Orthopaedics, she learned she was suffering from primary hip osteoarthritis and advanced knee osteoarthritis, conditions that occur when cartilage in the joint wears away. This loss of cartilage can cause friction between the bones, leading to increased joint pain and decreased range of motion.
Dr. Wingerter recommended total hip replacement and total knee replacement (also known as total knee arthroplasty) to relieve Honore’s knee pain. Six months after her hip replacement, Honore returned to Dickson-Diveley Orthopaedics for her knee replacement. Watch as Honore and Dr. Wingerter tell her patient story in more detail:
