Jim and Jackie Pahula2

Jim is back in the (bike) saddle

Jim and his wife, Jackie, embraced an active lifestyle, but pain from arthritis in both knees was beginning to slow him down. The decline was gradual, but at some point Jim was no longer able to ride his bike. He knew he had to take action.

Jim had one knee replaced at Allina Health and it went so well he had the other knee replaced just nine months later. Today, Jim and Jackie are back enjoying the activities they love.

Expert care for acute or sports-related injuries

An acute injury is one that occurs suddenly, and usually during an activity of some kind. If you experience a fracture, sprain or tear, an Allina Health sports medicine provider can help.

You don’t have to be an athlete to benefit from seeing a sports medicine provider. Allina Health sports medicine specialists can help just about anyone, no matter how your injury happened. We use the latest technologies to diagnose, treat and rehabilitate musculoskeletal conditions in athletes of all abilities. Our orthopedic specialists pioneer and implement innovative treatments and therapies that help you get better, faster.

Help for chronic pain

Chronic discomfort can be the result of an old injury, overuse or misuse of a joint, arthritis or simple aging. Let us help you begin living your life again with a conservative (non-surgical) treatment plan, minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery, joint revision surgery or joint replacement. Learn more about orthopedic surgery.
