in a car accident that caused
multiple fractures in both legs and
an excessive amount of blood
Through the course of physical therapy to learn to walk on his prosthetic,
he realized there was still a massive amount of debilitating pain in his right
leg, particularly his knee.
Several doctors turned down the

Then he was referred to
Dr. Niels Linschoten in

knee replacement surgery that would
relieve him of his pain.
