Roger McCabe, 80, of Calverton had his right knee replacement surgery done last year by Dr. Michael Ciminiello at Peconic Bay Medical Center.

When asked how it went, he summed it up simply, saying, “It was a piece of cake.”

He took no pain killers or other medications and never had to resort to using a cane, he said.

“What did it for me was the physical therapy. The doctor called me an ideal patient,” Mr. McCabe said. “He told me it is not going to be easy but you have to work at it and I did.”

Mr. McCabe was headed to Peconic Bay’s 8th annual Joint Replacement Reunion Barbecue and Barn Dance event Friday afternoon at Martha Clara Vineyards.

There were about 400 former patients and 250 guests and medical staff in attendance. Click here for story and photos.
