Riding On (and pain-free) with a New Knee
Gerald Kuchta’s knee had bothered him for years. It hurt to walk, stand, and even ride his Harley-Davidson full dresser FLHT Standard. His arthritis had finally gotten the best of him. The 74-year-old New Lenox man was at the VFW when a friend told him about Dr. Robert Daley, one of Chicagoland’s leading orthopaedic surgeons in Total Hip Replacement, Minimally Invasive Hip and Knee Replacement and Knee Arthroscopy. Dr. Daley performed Chicago White Sox great Bo Jackson’s total hip replacement and artificial knee replacement surgery on Chicago Bears Hall of Famer Dan Hampton.

Frankfort Woman’s Severe Back Pain Eliminated due to Surgery at Silver Cross
Silver Cross Hospital offers free lecture and screening
Frankfort resident Mary Lou Anderson didn’t just wake up one morning with a sore back, instead her pain became progressively worse over the years. “The pain in my back would take my breath away. It was as if a searing knife was stuck in my back and the intensity literally stopped me from moving whether I was standing, walking or sitting,” said the 50 year-old legal assistant. “At one point the pain would shoot down my right leg and then as time went on I couldn’t even feel any sensation in my leg.” After getting no relief from pain injections and physical therapy, her family practice physician, Dr. Christopher Udovich, referred her to orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Chintan Sampat. It was then determined that she had a crushed nerve on her right side and spinal stenosis, so Anderson had surgery to fix her spine on June 10 at Silver Cross Hospital.
