Patient Story: Robin Neumann

Robin Neumann of Gratiot, MI, was battling pain in her hip and knee and had trouble moving around due to her arthritis. Her friend recommended Dr. Jeffrey DeClaire, orthopedic knee surgeon and founder of the Michigan Knee Institute, because he used the Balancebot, a combination of robotic assist and 3D computer navigation, to perform a robotic total knee replacement. After only eight weeks, Robin was able to return to daily activities, along with exercising and walking. An avid kayaker, she can now get in and out of the kayak without pain.
