Joyce Pruitt- Total Knee Replacement Surgery

Arthritis no longer slows down Pruitt after total knee replacement surgery at Coryell Memorial Hospital

The day after her total knee replacement surgery at Coryell Memorial, Joyce Pruitt, felt like a new woman.

"For years, I battled knee problems," Pruitt says. “I had been putting off having my knee replaced, but I finally couldn’t live with the pain anymore. I had been doing steroid and the rooster comb injections, but they just weren’t giving me any relief.”

Pruitt, a local business owner, and grandmother who loves to travel suffered from osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disease in her knee.
