Knee surgery

For several months I was bothered by pain in my right knee with progressively more swelling and instability. My family doctor recommended an x-ray and physical therapy, followed by a cortisone shot. Neither produced favorable results and, after an MRI, my doctor's opinion was that arthroscopic surgery was probably in order and recommended an orthopedic surgeon.


After reviewing the MRI and examining my knee, Dr. Amit offered various options to repair a tear in the meniscus and smooth out the cartilege in the knee. If it were pain only, it could be treated with medication. Since the knee was occasionally catching or kicking out, surgery would be a more favorable option. Doing nothing could cause a fall and I was tired of the pain and didn't want to be on pain medication for an indefinite period.


I chose to have the arthroscopic surgery as a hospital outpatient. I checked into the hospital in early morning, was able to walk out of the hospital and was home by mid-morning. I began physical therapy three days later on a schedule of twice weekly for four weeks and am now continuing prescribed exercises at home. I have full use and range of my right knee and am able to walk and exercise with no pain. I am very happy that I made the decision to have the arthroscopic surgery.
