Testimonial from Johnny S. Rodgers :
This is my knee replacement surgery journey. I wasn’t nervous because I had a great Doctor, Dr. C. Kent Boese. Dr. Boese explained each step; then I made the decision and he did the rest. What’s so amazing I had the surgery yesterday and I feel great. I’m back in the game coach.

Heisman trophy winner gets new knee and avoids an overnight hospital stay
September 14, 2015 (Omaha, NE) – Nicknamed “The Jet” for his rapid speed on the field, Johnny Rodgers won the Heisman Trophy in 1972 then played in the Canadian Football league.

He says, “I found out I needed a total knee replacement, but I didn’t want the surgery because I had to stay in the hospital.” He continues, “Hospitals are full of sick people and I didn’t want to stay in the hospital for two to three days with risks of getting an infection or getting sick.” Read more..
