New medical procedure is improving the lives of those with chronic knee pain
A new state of the art knee surgery is changing lives, and Atlanta is one of the first cities in the United States to offer it.
Twenty-six-year-old Chelsea Cannon never thought she’d be able to bend her right knee.
“This took about six weeks,” said Cannon who had dealt with chronic knee pain for 12 years.
That pain started at age 14 when Cannon was injured playing basketball.
By the time she turned 16 she’d been through two knee surgeries.
“I did everything that you could. I’ve had cortisone shots to the point where I can’t have cortisone shots anymore. I did the Euflexxa and different gel injections to try to add some cushion. I’ve had so many different MRIs.”
