    Aram, Dr. Anthony N
    Thirty-five years ago, I severely damaged my right knee playing volleyball. In those days, there was nothing to do but remove the fluids with a large syringe and wrap it up in an ace bandage. In 1998 and 2004, I finally had Reston Orthopedics do 2 arthroscopic surgeries on this knee, with only modest improvement in the pain level. Luckily, my left knee was still sound.
    About two years ago, I damaged my left knee. When the pain became too much to bear,I went back to Reston Ortho in 2012 and had another arthroscopic surgery to alleviate a medial meniscal tear. It did not work out well, and I was limping around considerably months after the surgey. Now, I had two very iffy knees!
    Fortunately, a lady overheard a conversation in which I was describing this problem. She told me quite emphatically that I should go to see Dr Aram. He had done two total replacements on her knees, and she could not say enough about the results. So, I decided to check him out.
    Prompted by my son, I went to Angie's List to do the research, and I was stunned. What are the chances that for 20 years I had been going to see 2 of the least well-regarded doctors in the area to work on my knees, while Dr Aram (and others) had glowing success stories reported? Quite an eye-opener -- thanks to Angie's List. So, I went to see Dr Aram without further hesitation.
    In February, he operated on my left knee. The next day, I was walking (well, limping) around without crutches. Within a week, it was clear that this operation was going to have a profound effect on my life. Dr Aram told me that the same procedure could be done on my right knee, so I scheduled that surgery as soon as he was able to do it. On May 7, 2013, he operated on my right knee (the one with the very old injury and 2 previous surgeries by Reston Ortho). The change has been miraculous -- I just don't know how else to describe it. The mobility that this has suddenly given me is beyond any expectations.
    Both of these surgeries involve a new procedure called and quot;Makoplastyand quot;. It is a robotically-assisted partial knee replacement, and not every knee problem can be solved in this way. So, I am lucky that both of my knees could be repaired by this incredible breakthrough. His office in Fairfax and his surgical center in Bethesda are both first-rate. and state-of-the-art.
    To understand better how this sugery affected my life, I should mention that both of my legs are now visibly straighter than they were before the operations; and the result has ameliorated the pain that I've had in my feet and back. No doubt, it will take some time for me to fully appreciate what my newly-refurbished knees will mean to me, but so far it has been nothing but good news.
