So, she turned to Dr. Martin Roche at Holy Cross Orthopedic Institute who performed a total knee replacement with VERASENSE. Today, Phyllis’s right knee feels as good as it did before it started hurting, and she’s ready to get her left knee done.

Richard Lentz underwent knee replacement with VERASENSE in January 2014 after living with pain in his left knee for years. Richard said, “If there’s one piece of advice I could give to someone, it would be: Don’t put up with the pain for as long as I did; it will only get worse. Get your knee replacement sooner, rather than later.”
Los Angeles Police Officer Sandra Liddy injured her knee so badly in a training exercise that it left her unable to do her job. So she turned to Dr. Jaime Hernandez for a brand new technique in knee replacement surgery.
“The best part of having both of my knees replaced was being able to enjoy my dream wedding at 60 pain-free, just three months after surgery,” said Carl C. Clements of Fort Myers, Florida.
Dr. Jaime Hernandez, an orthopedic surgeon at Northridge Hospital, is using breakthrough technology such as VERASENSE to help improve his total knee replacement procedures. He utilizes VERASENSE to ensure the knee implant is better balanced, which he says is the most important part of a knee replacement.
