Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Grelsamer "Most patients do not need a knee arthroscopy; most patients don't even need an MRI. (An MRI can be frankly misleading when it reads "torn meniscus".) Did you know that a number of painful conditions do not show up on an MRI? In our practice, patients are given up to an hour on an initial consultation. If you need surgery, you'll have the best, but chances are you won't need this. See "What Your Doctor May NOT Tell You About Knee Pain and Surgery" (2nd edition winter 2014). See www.rpgOrtho.com"
