For those of you who have had meniscus transplants, how did the whole procedure go about?
I had an almost complete lateral meniscectomy 5 weeks ago (5mm of the outer rim left, which is actually still torn through the middle but with hopes it'll bleed/scar over), and I'm trying to look into the option of having a meniscus transplant. I just want an evaluation to see if I'm a candidate for now, and I'm trying to see someone in the Boston area. A surgeon back at home from California, where I had my two surgeries, referred 3 surgeons to me (Dr.Gomoll, Minas, and Mithoefer). Dr Mithoefer is out of my network and Dr Minas is booked until April of next year!
How long did you have to wait to even see a surgeon? Does anyone know of anyone else in the Boston area?
