Local surgical history was made last month when Dr. Eric Nelson of Heartland Orthopedic Specialists performed the 1,000th Mako robotic joint replacement at Alomere Health. His patient, Glenwood local and retired area daycare provider Elizabeth Chan, has had great results.
Just 4 weeks ago, Chan underwent her robotically assisted knee replacement using the Mako system at Alomere Health under Dr. Nelson’s care. Now, Chan is feeling better every day, and she’s back to walking normally without the pain she felt before.
“The pain that I had in my knee before my surgery is gone,” says Chan. “It’s well worth going through so you can get your life back together.”
