Hi all! I am a 62 year old woman having a LTKR on 2/17 in NJ. I had my RTKR in 3/19 and left hip in 1/14.

Truly looking forward to getting this done as my knee is really done. It's preventing me from taking walks and enjoying life. As an older Mom of two teen girls, I like to do things with them to keep connected.

Having had a really good Mako robotic experience with my first knee, I am planning for the same!! Much luck to all of you.
