I had a meniscotomy done. I had lived with the tear for a year and a half. Saw 4 different orthopedic surgeons... none of them believed me and told me my pain did not make sense. One even said I was crazy! . Dr Herrera was the only doctor who actually believed me and did not say I was crazy. He...more
