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!
