“I’ve had two knee replacements over the years. My problems started over 40 years ago when I was pregnant and fell on black ice. I was walking “bone-on-bone” for any number of years. Dr. Crawford did my first knee replacement in Newburyport five years ago, and then the second one in Portsmouth this past January. I can’t believe how much better I feel. I realize now that my back was horrible for all those years because my bad knees threw my entire body out of whack. Now I go up and down the stairs like a normal person. I really enjoy gardening which was a problem with my knee pain, so I am really looking forward to it this year. I left so many activities unfinished in the fall that now I can do. Of course, I followed Dr. Crawford to Portsmouth. He’s a personal favorite of mine, and I work with a lot of doctors. Any problem I have that involves a bone – I’m going to Portsmouth!”
