I had been a Trilat Osteotomy in early May, and am recovering much quicker than the norm. It took years for someone to recommend this procedure, as a way to avoid a knee replacement. So pleased with the results. The scar isn't even awful, thanks for Dr. Graham's expert scalpel technique!

Dr.. Graham is amazing. Iv been having knee problems for years. I am bone to bone in my left knee. He is the only dorctor that Iv been to that scopes your knee well puting a needle into you. His technique is the most painless injection I have every had.
