“I met with the Dr. several times. He told me what he was going to do, did it, and what I would have to do after the operation. the time spent with the Dr. was pretty brief, but packed with information- in other words he didn't waste time nor mince words; the time was well spent. Recovery takes a long time; exercises, as the Dr. was careful to point out, are extremely important- I did mine as directed (wasn't easy)' and am now able to walk without my left knee feeling as though it is going to come apart.”
