It's been three months since Barbara Ciara's double knee replacement surgery and for the first time she's seeing how it all happened.

"Ohhhh!!!" - That was Barbara's reaction to seeing video of her graphic surgery, "He's sawing my bone!"

Barbara's double knee replacement surgery involved saws, hammers, chisels - necessary tools for a necessary surgery. Barbara's knees were shot.

The man doing the hammering and sawing was orthopedic surgeon Dr. Louis Jordan from the Jordan-Young Institute.

"I tell patients it's like glorified carpentry," Dr. Jordan said.

He knows what he's talking about - Dr. Jordan does about 700 knee and hip replacements a year.

It's like putting together a puzzle using big tools and Dr. Jordan said everything has to fit just right in the end.

While that sounds very complicated, that's not the most challenging part about this procedure.
