Stopping the constant pain

IU Health Bloomington Hospital

Stopping the constant pain

Mark Fordyce broke his knee when he was around 30 years old. After years of wear and tear, he developed arthritis in the joint, which progressed to the point where he was in constant pain. That's when he turned to Brandon Hood, MD, IU Health Southern Indiana Physicians Orthopedic Surgeon.

After going over all of the options, a total joint replacement was deemed the best option. And thanks to outpatient surgery, Fordyce was back home in his easy chair by 2 pm on the same day as his operation.

Learn more about his journey in the video above.

And register for Dr. Hood's free Hip and Knee Replacement Seminar on Tuesday, Aug. 8, in Nashville to learn more about joint replacement surgery.
