“Dear Dr. Chalnick, Four months ago you did a total knee replacement on my left knee. Yesterday I played golf for the first time since then and shot a birdie on hole number seven along with winning closest to the pin (there were 40 others competing for the prize.) I also played doubles tennis twice this week. I have no pain during or after sports. I can’t thank you enough for giving me back the ability to be active again. I feel 10 years younger. One more thing, I danced the night away the same day I played that great game of golf. Thank you so very much. Sincerely, Jean P.”
