Great success using music with knee replacement surgery


The stories keep pouring in of people who have used music through headphones with their various surgeries and had faster recoveries, less anesthesia and overall better experiences. One woman told me that if she had not had her headphones and music in the recovery room that the noise level in there would have driven her crazy. When you’re in a large room with lots of other people who have just had surgery, it’s inevitable that there will be a few people who are in acute pain. As you know, when people are in pain, they often cry out or at least moan and groan! My patient (who recently had knee replacement surgery) had to get past a nurse who initially said no to get to her anesthesiologist who said “I can’t imagine why it would cause any harm and if it makes you feel better, then go right ahead!”
PLEASE contact me at and let me hel you prepare for your surgery with music. If you live in the Louisville, KY area I can even come to your home. If you live in Seattle or Boston or Dallas, we can do it over the phone or even have a teleseminar! Please take advantage of this easy-to-use technique that can greatly improve your chances of a successful surgery!
