“At 92, I still play golf, line-dance, cheerlead for the Polo Club, and model clothing for a major retailer, so I wasn’t about to let knee pain hold me back. Dr. Cowin performed my knee replacement and I must say he can almost perform miracles. After surgery, I had one week of rehab with FMI’s excellent therapists and haven’t needed a cane since. I can do everything I want without pain, including chasing down a runaway shopping cart while wearing high heel shoes! Folks my age should know they’re not too old for surgery. I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Cowin or FMI.”
