If you think you are ready for TKR, look no further than Dr. Gautsch and his excellent team. I kept waiting and hoping over the last ten years for a silver bullet to avoid TKR for both knees (bone on bone was painful with any activity and made me bowlegged) or even an improved procedure (minimally invasive), and decided i could not wait any longer to enjoy my life to its fullest and finally found a surgeon who puts all the best practices together. With his computer assisted navigation to help ensure a perfect alignment of the knee with minimal cuts and sparing the quad muscle and other soft tissue by making the incision on the inside of knee made sense, my pt was blown away with my progress first week after surgery. I also could not believe that TKR could be done as "outpatient" at the Indian Lakes Surgery Center in Hendersonville and was a little skeptical at first, but both the surgery center and staff all worked like a well oiled machine allowing me to go home the same day.
