Knee replacements increase Betty White's joy of traveling.
At 88, Albuquerque resident Betty White doesn’t let too many things keep her from traveling and doing what she wants. “To me, age is just a number. I don't think about it much. I just really love to go. I guess you could say that I have itchy feet.”
So two years ago when her aching knees began to limit her daily activities, she decided to get them examined.
If you are experiencing pain in your knees, hips, or other areas, call Lovelace Orthopedic Services at (505) 727-2727.
