Bill Bielmyer’s first knee operation was in high school — a football injury. His second surgery was ten years later — a karate injury. Several months ago, doctors showed Bill Bielmyer the X-ray of his ailing left knee, and he saw the bone-on-bone osteoarthritis that was causing him the deep, aching, joint pain that had slowed his fitness enthusiasm to a crawl.
But when his doctor told him he needed total knee replacement surgery, Bill objected. “I said, ‘Doc, I’m 64, I don’t want to go through another knee operation and have all these restrictions. Are there any other options?’”
Bill’s doctor suggested that Bill try a brace. After several months with his custom-fitted Unloader One, Bill is back to golf and pain-free walks with his wife. He’s feeling great.
