UOS Patient Stories

Teresa - Total ankle replacement

Dr. Christine M. Seaworth

Thanks to my care at UOS, I can...walk without pain in my left ankle. I went on the internet in August and found Dr. Christine Seaworth at the University of Tennessee Medical Center. I called and the receptionist advised me that her doctor would need to check my records to see if I would be a good candidate, so I called my doctor and had them send my records to Knoxville. I figured it would be months before I heard anything. I was very surprised when they called less than a week later and set up an appointment. I saw Dr. Seaworth on August 8th. She put everything in motion and after having a CT scan of my ankle, my surgery took place on September 28th. My new ankle is titanium and polyethylene, and is made to my exact needs. I had suffered for years with not being able to walk or walk with a limp and that caused my back to hurt. I saw Dr. Seaworth today at her Turkey Creek office and I am now a whole person and able to walk without limping. Anyone who has ankle problems should contact DR. CHRISTINE SEAWORTH at UNIVERSITY OF TENNESSEE MEDICAL CENTER IN KNOXVILLE, TENNESSEE or call her office at 1865-546-2663. That's the smartest move I've ever made. And one more thing, THANKS DR. SEAWORTH, YOU ARE THE BEST.
