Patients at MidHudson Regional Hospital experience amazing, life-changing outcomes each and every day.
These are a few of their stories.
Deborah Horan - Wappingers Falls
Wappingers Falls’ Deborah Horan knows the pain of failing knees. Several
years ago, a combination of osteoarthritis and an old tear in
her meniscus had left the once-avid walker with debilitating discomfort
in her left knee. Medications and injections offered little to no
relief, the pain becoming so severe that she eventually needed a cane.
In 2013, Horan’s orthopedic surgeon, David Stamer, MD, recommended a
total knee replacement in order for her to return to the long walks and
bike rides she loved.
Christine Boehlert - Poughkeepsie
On a beautiful Wednesday afternoon in July, Christine Boehlert of
Poughkeepsie was playing golf in a local women’s league. Riding in the
cart to the next hole, she felt a mosquito bite her above the right
ankle. She slapped at the pesky bug and then proceeded to complete her
round. She forgot about the incident for a week or so, until she noticed
the bite wasn’t healing properly.
