Patient Comments (1)
in Los Angeles, CA |
Have dealt with what are considered the "top knee" orthopaedic surgeons in Los Angeles area for the past 15 years. Autologous Chondrocyte Implant (ACI) in the right knee, Cartilage Autograft Implantation System (CAIS) in left. Both performed by Bert Mandelbaum. Implants have failed and Dr Fornalski has done surgery on each knee to clean out remains and assess future options. His honesty and expertise far out weigh the "for profit" system that will typically sell what they are able to offer.
