Details of Experience:

This Patient is a very active 69 year old male, who enjoys golf and is presently the “Master Starter” for PGA National Golf Course in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. He is very eager to return to work doing what he loves.

The Patient was admitted to the Rehabilitation Center at Jupiter Gardens after an elective total knee replacement. The Patient was unable to bathe or dress himself and could not walk without assistance. The patient worked hard everyday, most days returning to the gym to get some extra strengthening and cardio. On a follow-up visit to his orthopedic Surgeon, the doctor was very impressed with his progress, advising him he was two (2) weeks ahead of schedule, which was contributed by his aggressive therapy of 7 days a week and the dedication of the therapists working so diligently with him.

The Patient returned home after 15 days of therapy and is very grateful to the staff at Jupiter Gardens. He is planning to return as an outpatient to continue his progress.
