For most of Glenda Holden’s life, she has had pain and mobility issues related to her knees. Last summer, when the pain increased, she knew it was time to visit a specialist. The pain and range of motion had gotten so bad that she had difficulty partaking in daily activities as simple as walking up and down the stairs.
New to the area, she visited the Orthopaedic Physicians of Colorado where she met with Dr. Joseph Assini. Dr. Assini informed Glenda that she would need a total knee replacement and on November 3, 2014 she underwent surgery at Swedish Medical Center. Just a month after surgery, Glenda was able to walk with little pain, which was a huge improvement after suffering for years.
“Today, as a result of this surgery, my knee feels better than it has in 10 years. For the first time, I can walk up and down stairs with ease. I feel like I can do pretty much anything now, pain free,” said Glenda. “Dr. Assini is wonderful. I can’t even begin to convey the gratitude I have towards him and his staff. They have truly given me my life back.”
