Jake's Take on
Exactech and Optetrak The Peter Jacobsen Knee
Peter Jacobsen is the picture of an active lifestyle. Whether he’s playing golf or guitar, entertaining millions on TV, or giving color commentary to an audience of one (likely his grandson), being on the go is at the core of Peter’s existence. Yet, after 36 years on the PGA tour and eight years on the Champions tour, knee pain began to threaten his dynamic way of life.
it's like I was born with it!
That’s when he decided to find out all he could about knee replacement. When it comes to implant design, there are a lot of choices out there but Peter wanted proven technology–not the latest gimmick–not for his knee.
He chose a surgeon who uses the Optetrak® knee system by Exactech. Built on more than three decades of research and clinical success, Optetrak is known for providing excellent, long-term results to patients around the world.*
Peter returned to the golf course just six weeks after his knee replacement surgery. He’s back to his vigorous schedule of work and play. So what’s Jake’s take on life with his new knee? "It feels so natural - it's like I was born with it!" he says.
*As with all surgeries, results can vary. Your surgeon will discuss the possible risks or complications and will consider a wide range of variables when selecting the knee that’s right for you--factors like age, height, weight and activity level. The Optetrak knee is designed to accommodate these variations to provide the best possible outcome, striving to increase mobility and independence, returning patients’ quality of life.
