She had rheumatoid arthritis in both of her knees and a fall on her shoulder caused arthritis to form in that joint.

My joints cracked all the time.” Dr. R. Michael Greiwe, an affiliated orthopaedic surgeon with OrthoCincy Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine performed Carol’s total shoulder replacement at St. Elizabeth Joint Center. Dr. Matthew T. Hummel did the joint replacement surgery on both of her knees. “My mom had her knees and hips done by Dr. Hummel, so the only way I was going to get it [joint replacement] done, was with Dr. Hummel,” says Carol. Carol describes her experience, “It was a great experience, I am thankful I had it done. I wish I would have done it years ago.” Start Your Joint Replacement Today For more information or to make an appointment with one of our affiliated orthopaedic surgeons from OrthoCincy Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine call (859) 301-BONE (2663).
