“Getting better at Glen Cove Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation is like training for the Olympics, only more satisfying . . . because I know I’m getting the gold.”
Steve is hardly the type of person who enjoys sitting still. Co-owner of a window treatment manufacturing, and installation company in Port Washington, New York, Steve is used to spending his time climbing up and down ladders, pricing jobs, and visiting customers. However, the stabbing, debilitating pain that began creeping into his knees a little over three years ago started to seriously impact his work, and his personal life. “When I realized the pain in my knees was starting to impact decisions of where I’d go, and what I’d do, I knew I needed help,” recalls Steve. Advanced arthritis was the culprit, and as Steve soon learned, the solution would be total knee replacement.
