Getting Back to Policing After TKA

Saying no to the "Cool Dad Limp." An interview with Nick Garsee.

We are pleased to share this interview from The Bee's Knees Podcast and KNEE RADIO 1. Podcast host PJ Ewing interviews Nick Garsee from Texas. PJ and Nick explore 'getting back to policing after TKA".

Seven Surgeries/20 Years
Nick had seven surgeries on his knee over the course of 20 years. He was ready for a total knee replacement to get back to a normal gait with no limp. And to eliminate the extreme pain that he experienced during this extended period of time. It finally came down to job performance. Nick had an incident during his police work where his knee gave out on him. At that moment he realized that he could no longer do the job with his knee in its compromised condition. That started him on the road to total knee replacement.
