Jill's Story

The grinding knee pain that Jill Pittman was experiencing was getting worse. After using a knee brace and trying various kinds of injections, she decided to meet with Jason Davis, M.D., an orthopaedic surgeon at Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital.

“Dr. Davis was very thorough and I had instant confidence to go ahead with the robotic-assisted partial knee replacement that he recommended,” says Jill.

Jill was very nervous about surgery. In the past, she had nausea and migraines following surgical procedures, but this time was different. Dr. Davis made sure that she received what she needed to prevent this from happening.

Recovery went well too. “I only used my walker for three days and a cane for one day,” says Jill. After about four weeks her pain went away.

“The entire staff at Henry Ford West Bloomfield is excellent,” says Jill. She completed her left knee surgery in July, and for the first time she was not the least bit apprehensive.
