Osteotomy vs. Meniscus allograft/art. cartilage transplant?
« on: April 15, 2011, 11:22:51 AM »
Does anyone have any experience with a lateral meniscus transplant combined with an articular cartilage transplant performed by Dr. Kevin Stone?

Why are you against osteotomy?

I would never choose a doctor if I felt about him/her the way you feel about this one. Do you just not like this guy or do you have a general aversion to doctors in general?

One has the sense that the edit by the original poster was not a minor one.  ;D :o ;D

Not minor at all. Not that the original was an all-out bash in any way, in fact it was quite the stylistic write-up in my observation. But indeed, the edit wasn't minor in the least.

To the OP: I saw nothing wrong with your original post. You may want to add it back, at least the details and the history that you presented.

I can't say that I'm the biggest fan of the medical profession myself, what with the doctors I've been exposed to the past year. But sometimes you need them!
