Best OS in Boston, MA ?????????
« on: March 13, 2006, 07:45:49 PM »
I am looking for a very good knee surgeon in MA.  I have Chrondromalacia.  Currently, seeing Dr. Douglas Ayers and now Dr Ramappa at Beth Israel in Boston.  I am not getting anywhere.
I am a 42 yr old woman in good shape but am dealing with almost croppling pain in both knees.
Help please if you have suggestions.  Thanks. ???

Dr. Tom Minas, I think at Brigham and Young, is quite possibly the best for articular cartilage in the country!
ACI was supposed to be 2/21/06.  On 6/29/06 Insurance co said have another scope, and if it still looks good, they'll ok the ACI.

There are a couple of people on the boards who've seen him.  But if you do any research on articular cartilage, his name will come up.  OFTEN.
