Shore Medical Center’s chief of Orthopedic surgery, Dr. Stephen Zabinski, of Shore Orthopedic University Associates led the lifelike mock knee surgery. The Shore Medical Center Foundation hosted the events to further educate the medical center’s supporters on the clinical expertise available at Shore and to showcase the state-of-the-art operating rooms in the Surgical Pavilion.
A group of donors and guests of Shore Medical Center got a close look at what happens in a total knee replacement during two mock surgery events held recently at the Somers Point health facility.
After 25 years working on my feet at a local supermarket and meniscus surgery on both knees, normal wear and tear had made getting around increasingly difficult. I had received cortisone shots to relieve the pain in my left knee, but began having such a hard time going up and down stairs that I knew that something had to be done.
In consultation with Dr. Zabinski, I scheduled my total left knee replacement surgery at Shore Medical Center. It was my first time at Shore, and from start to finish I had a wonderful experience. I began by attending one of Shore’s joint replacement education classes, and am glad I did. I learned valuable information that I was able to use, not only while I was at the medical center, but also when I’d returned home after surgery. My visit for pre-admission testing was very quick and easy, and my surgery and recovery could not have gone more smoothly. After my surgery, I was up and moving around the same day. Everyone was pleasant and attentive. I went home the next day, and the whole experience was much easier than I had anticipated.
