in Youngstown, OH |
Went to Stefko in May for a torn Acl. Told me i just tore my acl and my meniscus was fine and to live without and acl, even tho I play Football, Ski, and ride motocross. Did his physical therapy for 2 months and it did not help at all, made it worse as my knee would not stay in place. Went to Cleveland Clinic Sports after Stefko made the decision not to do surgery on me on August 16th. Sept 26th I had surgery by Dr. Spindler and was walking with less pain then the past 3 months in 7 days.

Dr. Stefko is all about the best for his patients, straight talking and very skilled surgeon. Dr. Stefko resored movement in my rotator cuff surgery which was a 9 out of a worst case 10. The recovery was not rushed and on the safe side to promote complete healing. The surgury was nearly a year ago and I am doing fine, exercising and streching my shoulder and nearly back to normal, active lifestyle.
