Dr. Frost performed surgery on my knee for a torn meniscus. It turned out the damage was much more extensive than imaged by the MRI. Despite that, I walked out of surgery with no pain and no swelling. I laid low for four days using elevation, ice, and Naproxen. I never did experience any pain or swelling. I came out of surgery with almost full range of motion. Dr. Frost spent a ton of time answering my questions. I am extremely pleased with my outcome. Dr. Frost and his staff are awesome!
