Success Stories

For over ten years Linda was no longer able to enjoy the activities she loved. Her friends kept telling her to get a knee replacement, but Linda thought it was going to be the worst thing in the world, so she wasn’t going to do it. “I thought, well, I’ll end up in a wheelchair; wheelchair over fear. I went to see Dr. Moore who told me not to worry, there’s nothing to worry about. I woke up after my surgery and thought ‘I did it’. Now I wouldn’t trade my new knee for anything. I love my new knee! It’s just nice to have my life back. We’re going to do a lot of dancing, a lot of walking.”

Once an active jogger, Gary got to the point where he couldn’t go up and down the stairs without hanging onto the railing. He was limping around with his knees crunching and grinding. “When I met Dr. Diana, I thought this is someone who knows his business, has lots of experience and a low complication rate. Being in the medical field I knew what to expect. The most surprising thing tome was that a few hours after surgery I was walking! I had a walker, but I didn’t need it. I feel I have gone back 30-40 years because my knees feel like they did when I was 25 years old.”

Apryl’s life revolved around “what will not hurt.” She had damaged her knees three years prior and doctors had told her she was too young for a knee replacement. At age 45 Apryl thought “This is as good as it is going to get.” Until she met Dr. Moore. Apryl explains that Dr. Moore said, “Age is not what we look at here; we look at the knee.” Apryl’s surgery was at 9:00 A. M. on a Thursday, and she went home at 9:00 A.M. the next day, able to put full weight on her leg and walk around the house. The Coon Joint Replacement Institute is so cutting edge and phenomenal. It gave me my life back. I am able to fully function and do what I love to do- nursing, taking care of babies.”

John Nordstrom has always led an active life. But up until recently walking the aisles of his stores or standing for any length of time caused him severe pain. "I would be nearly in tears everyday. I looked at several options, including having a knee replacement the old fashioned way. But after doing some research I discovered Dr. Coon and his breakthrough QuadSparing total knee replacement. It just made a lot of sense. Everything went so well. I never used a crutch. I never used a cane or a walker. And I walked out the hospital. The only pain killer I used was a bag of ice. I was driving in four days. And was back to flying in a little over two weeks. I didn't feel restricted at all. Now, my knee is as good as it was when I was 25 years old."

With a smile on her face, Diane Livingston recalls her knee replacement. “Golf is a passion for me. When I couldn’t walk the golf course, I knew it was time. It’s impossible to play with bad knees.” On March 20, 2009, Diane had her knee replaced by Dr. Coon. “I came in at 5 a.m. and left by 5 p.m. the same day. I literally was playing golf again by May 4th…. And pretty well I might add. Golf is a blessing, and being healthy enough to play… well it is a gift.”

Often described as a Renaissance man, Robert Foley never stops moving. Owner and winemaker for his winery, lead guitarist and vocalist for the Robert Foley Band, hip pain from a childhood injury plagued him most his life. “I was so encouraged by how quickly I recovered and gained use and ease of exercise... and freedom from pain, that I couldn’t wait to have my second hip done. I am doing everything I was doing before, but without any pain. It is life transforming.”

To say that Bruce Kennedy, investment manager and champion javelin thrower, leads an active life is an understatement. When walking the beach with his dog and climbing the nearby mountains became too painful, Bruce knew it was time to do something about it. His general practitioner in Santa Barbara led him to Dr. Coon. “It is pretty obvious to me that the minimally invasive procedure Dr. Coon has perfected requires less cutting of soft tissue and muscle. That can only mean one thing-less discomfort and pain afterwards, and a faster healing process. I have more flexibility thank I have had in years.”
