  • I suffered a horrible fall down a flight of stairs in my home. After all was said and done the sepsis in my body centered in my left knee. My previous Doctor said all he could do was remove the artificial knee joint and replace it with a ‘spacer’. This left me with a ‘peg leg’ of sorts, like Captain Hook.- Michael E.
