For years, Christina Fisher experienced episodes of heart burn, acid reflux and abdominal bloating that would last for hours or days at a time. Thinking that it would eventually go away, she coped with it best she could - avoiding chocolate and Italian food. 

For years 68-year-old Gayle Kampe suffered from osteoarthritis in her right knee. The condition made walking down stairs and even a curb agonizing. Attempting to twist her knee or getting up from a sitting position became unbearable. The pain intensified so much that she couldn’t even find a position while sleeping that wasn’t painful. At the suggestion of a friend, Gayle met with orthopedic surgeon Dr. Tom Antkowiak. Initially, a non-operative treatment was used to relieve her pain, but unfortunately was not successful. So together, they decided that the best course of treatment was for her to have surgery. So on Oct. 10, 2016, Gayle had partial knee replacement robotic surgery using the new Mako™ System at The Midwest Institute for Robotic Surgery at Silver Cross Hospital.
