Feeling Great After Outpatient Surgery

After 33 years of working in the physical therapy department at Somerset Hospital, Sharon Fox had a hunch that the pain in her knee was being caused by something other than arthritis.  This prompted her to make an appointment with Dr. David Girdany.

After some testing, Sharon learned that she tore her medial meniscus and would need surgery to repair it.  "Dr. Girdany was very nice.  He really took his time with me.  He explained all of my options and the potential complications," says Sharon.
Sharon was able to have arthroscopic surgery, which is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure.  Sharon is very happy with her results.  She has regained full range of motion in her knee.
Dr. Girdany is an orthopedic surgeon at Somerset Orthopedics.  To schedule an appointment, call 814-443-1281.
