Attorneys 1: Raymond S. Leathers, Nashville, Tennessee, for the appellant, Vanderbilt University.

Attorneys 2:

B. Timothy Pirtle, McMinnville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Pamela A. Jones.

Judge(s): HARRIS

In this workers’ compensation action, the employee, Pamela A. Jones, suffered a workrelated injury in 2004 and reached a settlement agreement with her employer, Vanderbilt University (Vanderbilt). She filed this action arguing that Vanderbilt was required to pay for bilateral knee replacement pursuant to the settlement agreement. Vanderbilt alleged that the need for the requested medical treatment was not caused by the work injury. After a hearing, the trial court ordered Vanderbilt to pay for Ms. Jones’s bilateral knee replacement. Vanderbilt has appealed. We affirm 1 the judgment.
