I’ve been an avid snowboarder from the age of 6 height of my career being when I moved to steamboat springs Colorado where I’ve experienced most of my injury’s ranging from shattered patella (not fracture that sucker exploded), MCL, ACL, distatched patella tendon, and torn maniscus split between both my knees. Dr. Vailas repaired what the Olympic surgeon from steamboat could not. Although I may have partially retorn my maniscus I’ve never felt so positive and confiden of leaving a doctors office

An expert in the function of the knee and joints. I had severe knee pain for 7 years. He looked at my MRI gave me a clear course of action and treatment. Performed an arthroscopic procedure. My knee was pain free days later and has never hurt again, 10 years! In addition the other knee became stronger as I wasn't putting everything on that good knee while in pain. A great surgeon, compassionate, detailed and decisive which I felt was key. Also repaired many top prospect NHL Hockey knees!
