Marching Through Life, Pain-Free

lou-deold-pt“When Dr. Kayal told me I needed to have both knees replaced, I wondered what life after surgery would hold. Now I’m back on the marching field, and I feel better than I have in 30 years. I never thought it was possible, but Dr. Kayal knew better.As a police officer in the 1970s, I sustained a serious knee injury during a suspect’s arrest. A meniscus removal, joint re-injury and arthroscopic procedure later, I was facing three decades of constant pain. My right knee was ruined, and my left knee had failed from ongoing joint stress. I was bowlegged, arthritic—and tired of suffering.I’m not going to kid you—I put off surgery as long as I could. I watched my wife undergo knee replacement surgery with another physician, and remember comforting her as she cried through the morphine. Now that’s pain, and I didn’t want anything to do with it. It was time, though. I was prolonging the inevitable.Dr. Kayal skillfully performed my double knee replacement during April 2010, and I returned to practicing with the drum and bugle corps after just four months of rehabilitation. In August, I marched in a three-hour practice and performed a field show—with only mild fatigue and soreness. There’s no doubt that Dr. Kayal is an expert surgeon, but he’s also understanding, supportive and patient-focused. Many doctors hear, but few actually listen. Dr. Kayal is one of those few, and I wouldn’t trust my orthopaedic health to anyone else.”– Lou DeOld, Hawthorne Caballeros Alumni Drum & Bugle Corps“Several other healthcare providers have seen the scars from my surgery, and have commented about Dr. Kayal’s precision work. They said he did a fine, fine job. I’m grateful for that.”– Dennis Magarro, Hawthorne Caballeros Alumni Drum & Bugle Corps“My surgery was done the end of September, and I was able to perform at a stage show the middle of November. By the spring, I was back in action with the Caballeros. Dr. Kayal treats you like family, and I always recommend him!”– Jim Nargiso, Hawthorne Caballeros Alumni Drum & Bugle Corps
