I have suffered with knee pain for several years. I was kicked on the outside of my rt. knee while loading cattle in 1993.  At first it could be addressed with linement and extra strength meds. After moving to Illinois and lack of exercise it became very painful.  I fell and landed on my rt knee. After much nagging I saw an Ortho here in town and was injected with negative results. Being a Community Care patient, I did not have a lot of options open to me.  I was finally able to get into Dr. Keller-THIS WAS MY AHHHH MOMENT. After a through exam by Dr. Keller, we discussed my options. It all came down to, I needed a Total Knee replacement. I had a lot to think about and no insurance.  In B/N this is a problem. It took me approximately 18 months to wade through all the bureaucracy with getting Medical Assistance. Dr. Keller through all this remained a very caring person and eventually my ally and advocate in getting medical assistance. He was willing to answer my questions and wade through all the paperwork required by the state.  April of 2009 I received my new knee. OSF was amazed at my recovery.  Surgery went well and my 2nd day of ortho rehab, I walked to my class. In June, I gave up my quad cane and walker and have never looked back.  I spent 8 weeks in PT.  I strongly recommend Dr. Keller to anyone in knee pain. My surgery was a good experience.  P.S. Dr. Keller, Thanks for giving us Mom back!!! K. Bays
