Orthopedic ONE patient, Tammy Zimmerman talks about living with rheumatoid arthritis and the damage the disease took on her joints, and her life. Tammy underwent bilateral knee replacement and shares moments from her journey pre and post surgery.

“I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis when I was 29. A few years into wrestling with the condition, I sustained severe damage to both knee joints. I couldn’t straighten my legs. I was lucky to have had Orthopedic ONE take me through my surgery. Now,
I can hop out of bed in the morning and pick up my three-year-old and swing her around. I’m so grateful to everyone at Orthopedic ONE for changing my life.”
