Dr. Stephen Littlejohn, Chief of Orthopedics Surgery at CHRISTUS Good Shepherd, performed a knee replacement surgery on Robbye Burk, the hospital said.

According to CHRISTUS Health, Burk is the third person in her family to have a joint replacement surgery done by Dr. Littlejohn.

“My main goal is to be able to get out and get around to play with my grandchildren. Take them to the zoo, play with them in the yard. I look forward to being able to do those things, as I have not been able to the last few years,” Burk said.

Located on 323 East Hawkins Parkway, the 24-hour hospital has a variety of treatments and services.
