“There is a profound hopelessness that comes when, at the age of 30, one hears that they need new knees but can’t get then until the age of 50. This is just not fair. At the time, all I could think of was, Hey, I hurt now. I can’t walk now. I could be dead in 20 years! I want my freedom now. Other doctors said that I would never walk again. Then I met Dr. Hodge. I have my legs and my life back.”
