We are proud to announce Dr. Bryan’s FitBit Community. It is an online forum for people who are considering a total knee replacement as well as for post-operative patients.
Online patient communities and patient forums have proven to be useful sources of support and information for patients, and the benefits of such online communities are becoming well documented. See: “Knee Arthroplasty: Shared Experience in a Virtual Community” (Michael D. Brookshire, 2011).
The main purpose of this Fitbit community is to encourage patients to maintain a certain level of activity as determined by their care plan. The secondary goal of the forum is to foster communication between persons who may need knee replacement surgery and those who have had one or more of their own joints replaced. Experienced users are encouraged to help “mentor” new patients, and provide a nurturing environment of support and knowledge outside of the doctor’s office.
Our aim is to get you back on your feet as quickly as possible with positive long-term benefits including weight loss, increased mobility and access to a support network that will see you through the more difficult days of your recovery.
Join our community, actively participate in the personal challenge set by my team and I and see for yourself how great you can feel. We are here for you every step of the way!
Ready, get set, GO!
