A patient of Dr. McNamara recited a poem to him and her departing knee prior to her total knee surgery.



Ode to a Good Friend

How many miles do you think we have walked?

My good old friend, my knee.

A lifetime of journeys, all thanks to you,

You’ve allowed me to be free.

But the road ends today for you my friend,

it’s time to bid farewell.

I have more places to go and things to do

and many more stories to tell.

So out with the old and on with the new,

a new journey’s in store for me.

For its time to put away the past,

and say hello to my brand new knee.

Thank you so much Jan and Dr. McNamara for sharing this with us. A good outlook on getting a knee replacement is some of the best therapy.
