Knee replacement-cut vein and artery behind knee which bled all night into leg and foot causing severe nerve damage. One year later leg will be amputated.
in Amarillo, TX |
I am an overweight 70 year-old male who has experienced several health problems in the last number of years. One of these was a bout with cancer, for which I received radiation and chemo-therapy. The chemo did some things to this old body, including effecting the boney integrity of my system. When Dr. Risco replaced one of my knees, we experienced some problems with the prosthesis. Long story short. the doctor took very good care of me, and I would GLADLY recommend him to anyone!! Thx GEB
