Patient Comments (1)
in New Orleans, LA |
When I was 15, Waldron said (from MRI) that my ACL needed to be reconstructed, he had also said that my meniscus was "misshapened" and he "highly recommended trimming it back to normal." Months after my "successful surgery" He said I was "clear to going back to my normal life" Not even 2 weeks after doing so I retore my ACL and this time my meniscus, so I had gotten Waldron to fix it again. Then 2 years pass (age 18)and both retore and my new doctor says that I need a meniscus reconstruction.
