Joanne Fusilli

Two Total Knee Replacements (Right and left knee)
The Joint Replacement Center at Unity Hospital

Just six weeks after her first knee replacement, Joanne entered the operating room for a second time to get her other knee replaced. Her doctor was amazed. Joanne was determined to reclaim her life and had such a positive experience with her first knee replacement that she felt all the support and encouragement she needed to get two brand new knees.sooner rather than later. "What most impressed me were the classes I attended before my surgery. I knew what to expect and was prepared to walk the day after surgery whether I wanted to or not. I felt so comfortable, like I was the only patient there! Interestingly, all of the patients seemed to feel that way!"

"I can't say enough positive things about my experience at Unity Hospital . It's unbelievably clean (which I demand), the rehab is fantastic, and the nursing staff is remarkable. I have many thanks to extend to many people there, especially to Deb Wellington, who was even willing to give me her home phone number if I needed someone to talk to in the middle of the night. Her passion and support was uplifting for all of us. Today, I enjoy taking long walks with my husband and love hearing my grandchildren squeal as we ride our bikes together. "Here comes Nana!" is music to my ears!"
