Larry’s Story

Larry Gerrard

Two Under Par, on Two New Knees

Larry was slowing down. He wasn’t playing golf. He stopped officiating football games. In fact, he was having trouble just getting in and out of his car. The arthritis in his knees had him sidelined.

Surgery was the Solution

Larry decided to have both his knees surgically replaced by the acclaimed team at Wayne Memorial Hospital. After two individual surgeries – one year apart – he’s back on his feet and on his game.

And though he won’t always admit it, when he hits that clutch approach shot, he really does do his Happy Dance.

Nationally Recognized Expertise

Wayne Memorial Hospital was designated a Blue Distinction Center for Knee and Hip Replacement® by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina.
