A former stuntman and double of Fernando Poe, Jr. recently underwent knee replacement surgery at De Los Santos Medical Center due to very damaged joints. After years of doing martial arts and stunts, our patient, also called “FPJ” by his friends and colleagues, developed severe osteoarthritis of both knees. Coming to the Arthritis Center for relief, he could hardly walk due to severe pain. His x-rays showed knees without any cartilage and with the ends of the bones rubbing against each other.  Refusing to be a slave to pain, he decided to have both knees replaced at the same time. After a few months of therapy, “FPJ” is very glad to have undergone the surgery. He has returned to his previous activities and even started doing martial arts again.
