Patient Story: Judy Marie Chown

Judy Chown of Grand Blanc, MI, was struggling with pain and range of motion in her knee. She researched doctors and discovered that Dr. Jeffrey Declaire, orthopedic knee specialist and founder of the Michigan Knee Institute, performs knee replacement using the Balancebot robotic device. The Balancebot balances out ligaments in the knee and leads to a more precise knee replacement. Because of his high success rate with knee replacement patients, Judy chose to have surgery from him and has now returned to golfing, walking, and exercising pain-free.
