When Bill Peden was in high school, he suffered a knee injury during a track meet. Years later the severe pain in his left knee threatened Peden’s new pastime, surfing, not to mention his passion for hiking and other activities.

Based on the progression of arthritis shown in Bill's X-rays, the next step was clear. He would need a total knee replacement. Soon after his diagnosis, the surgery was performed at Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital (GVCH).

“It was really a great experience,” he says. Now, Bill reports his knee is “practically pain-free” and he can stay active in his job directing drug and alcohol recovery housing. With continued physical therapy, Bill eventually worked his way back to the surfboard he loves and to an active life of hiking with friends as well.

Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital transforms lives like Bill Peden's and many others working hard to return to activities they enjoyed before an accident or health issue.
