  • “I went to see Dr. Zlotnicki due to many years of pain in my knees. I had been advised over the past years that for me to keep getting shots to alleviate the pain was not going to last and that I needed total knee replacements on both legs. Dr. Zlotnicki recommended that I immediately do one knee and then do the other later. I chose to do my left knee first. Dr. Zlotnicki operated four weeks ago today. The operation was a total success! I have been doing my physical therapy for the last four weeks and now have a greater range of motion than in years with my left leg. There is still some stiffness in the knee, but that is constantly decreasing. The pain I had in that knee is gone. I will have Dr. Zlotnicki replace the knee in my right leg next winter.”
