Guest Bio: David Fisher, M.D., is Director of the Total Joint Center of Excellence at OrthoIndy Hospital (Indianapolis, Indiana) and an Assistant Clinical Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at the Indiana University School of Medicine. He performs more than 500 joint replacement procedures a year and specializes in primary and revision knee replacement.
Lani is a small animal veterinarian and equestrian physical therapist who provides chiropractic, therapeutic laser and massage therapy for competitive race horses. A nature and animal enthusiast, Lani has had a lifelong passion for being active outdoors, camping, hiking and riding horses.
Lani’s knee problems started in 1996 when she tore her anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in her left knee during a horse riding accident.
Despite the surgery, Lani’s pain progressed, and it became physically difficult for her to perform her job, which required her to be on her feet all day.
In 2013, Lani went ahead with a double knee replacement procedure and is back to working, riding and living an active, pain-free life.
Segment overview: Dr. David Fisher discusses the impact of Osteoarthritis on Women and treatment options for dealing with pain.
