My knees had needed to be replaced for approximately 20 years, but because of my age, all the surgeons said I was too young. Instead, I was getting injections, pain meds and surgeries that would ‘buy me time’ until I was old enough. Between both knees, that was 13 surgeries. Dr. Bernasek instead looked at the quality of my life. I couldn’t walk long distances. I had almost been severely injured several times by the knees giving out. After he replaced both knees, and I was diligent in my physical therapy, I can say that he gave me my life back. He is kind, caring and a great surgeon. I haven’t had any trouble at all with them. Thank you, Dr. Bernasek and Brian!
