John’s Story

“I FEEL 16 AGAIN.”

In spite of three arthroscopic surgeries for a torn meniscus, John Dower, age 70, couldn’t do a lot of things because the pain in his knees was just too much. “I couldn’t stand for a long time and I couldn’t walk without limping,” he says. After his wife had minimally invasive, quad-sparing knee replacement at Virtua, and was back to work in three weeks, John said, “I want to go where she went!” After having his own replacements done at Virtua, John’s not just standing around. “Now I can dance all night. I can do anything.”
