Patient Comments (2)
San Leandro, CA |
Required 4 knee surgeries for an ACL and Meniscal tear. I contracted a staph infection following the first surgery. My complaints of infection symptoms were ignored by his physician assistant, Greg Granato, in multiple follow-up appointments. The 2nd surgery (debridement surgery) and ensuing antibiotic treatment was unsuccessful, and my meniscal repair and patella needed to be removed in a 3rd surgery. In the 4th surgery the ACL was repaired, but the joint underwent major degeneration.
