In March of 2017 I had my knee replaced. For over a year I suffered with chronic pain/swelling of my leg and burning. I had three other surgeries and even a nerve block. The original surgeon never ordered a CT scan as recommended by the consulting physician he recommended. Finally, in March 2018 I had a CT and it was noted the cement of the device was not holding. I could actually feel the device mobile in my leg. Because I was crying daily in pain, one doctor deferred me to go to the Mayo clinic for treatment. He also missed diagnosed me as having chronic pain syndrome, even though I had told him I was assessed for that and I did not have it. Dr Ackerman saw my CT scan and what occurred to the device failing, took on my case and did the revision on 6/12/18. I am 90% better! Still going to therapy but at least I am not crying daily with chronic pain. Dr. Jefferey Ackerman has very blessed hands and I am so glad he did not “dismiss me” as an emotional female. High praises Kudos to Dr. Ackerman. I also appreciate the fact that he is very much like an old time doctor, he listens to you; he himself returns calls versus a PA and he reads your emails. As a retired RN of 43 years, I definitely appreciate his care.
