Joint Replacement Now Available at PMC
"Allen native Bob Frerichs is much happier these days after knee replacements. Frerichs, 67, said he had been having pain in his knees for "probably 5-6 years" and was helping haul corn in a combine when he heard about the new knee replacement surgery program at PMC on the radio. "My wife, Nancy, doesn't really like to go to Sioux City, so one afternoon when it was too damp to harvest, I called over to Providence Medical Center and made an appointment with Dr. Steven Stokesbary." Surgery on his first knee was done last fall, and his other knee was worked on after the first of the year. He says his only regret in having knee replacement surgery done at Providence was that he didn't think about it sooner.
