No sugar coating here. You want the truth and I aim to please.

Warning this site is different than most other sites regarding knee replacement surgery and the recovery period that follows. I receive no income from the manufacturers or distributors of knee replacement implants or designs. I do not work for any facility nor am I compensated by any surgeon or surgical group involved in knee replacements. I also do not accept ads by any parties involved in the surgical implantation of knee replacements.

I am a physical therapist by trade for the past 25 years and have worked with hundreds of patients recovering from knee replacement surgery.  I have a few books available for purchase on Amazon as well as a downloadable PDF available on this site.

Regardless of whether or not you ever choose to buy one of my products, the information given reflects my opinion and is provided to help you navigate the maze of knee replacement information available on the net.

True Dangers and Pitfalls Explained

My purpose in creating this site is to give you a much deeper level of understanding than can be obtained from the plain vanilla information that masks the true dangers and pitfalls of such an important surgery. Taking a knife to your God-given knee is an act that cannot be undone and should not be undertaken lightly. I want you to know all the inside Intel that I personally use to counsel friends and family.

On this site I delve into the demographics, the trends, the marketing hype and the little known shenanigans that occurs behind the scenes by the big implant companies. Three quarter of a million knee replacement surgeries are performed yearly in the United States alone and it is Big Money. Don’t let them take you for a ride at your expense!

knee surgery recovery ManualI created a manual to go with the flex bar on Amazon (which by the way will be back in stock shortly) It was previously only available with that purchase but is now available as a digital download. For those who are a bit shy about trying my method, it goes into greater detail outlining the exact step-by-step procedure I use with my patients.  Click here to get the manual.

Take advantage of the free PDF regarding the 7 Things Your Surgeon Won’t Tell You Unless You Know To Ask because it contains most of the important information in one easy read rather than scattered about in various posts and can be used as a handy reference.

And finally, I have spent the last year adding to my expertise by becoming a Certified FDN Practitioner and a level one certified Precision Nutrition Counselor. Expect to hear much more from me on how you can use nutrition and lifestyle changes to AVOID a knee replacement in the first place.

I welcome your comments and suggestions to make this site even better. At times people have had problems finding the bonus freebies from my book. Please use the contact me tab rather than leaving a comment and I will be able to quickly get that information to you.

Michelle Stiles called "the no nonsense" therapist, by her patients, created a company called Cowboy Up Recovery after recognizing the bankruptcy of the present medical model. Too many people regard conventional medical wisdom as gospel, ignoring the subversive influences of Big Pharma and Big Medicine. She believes, Americans in general are being trained from an early age to defer to experts in numerous areas of life and losing the impulses for self-responsibility and self-reliance in the process. Over-diagnosis and over-medicating has become endemic. While thankful for the best miracles of modern medicine, she encourages people of all persuasions to listen to their bodies and seek out answers to maintain not just an absence of disease but optimal health. Her advice is: Cowboy Up, no one cares more about your health than you do.
