Kudos, Dr. Grimm!
Okay....so there I was....I had been having sharp and painful knee pain in my right knee for months. I think I tweaked it by twisting wrong when I was getting out of a vehicle. I tried to work through it and see if it got better. After four months of "hoping" it would get better, I decided it was time to call in the doc.
The fella pictured above is David C. Grimm, MD. He took a look at my knee, sent me for an MRI and diagnosed a meniscus tear. He said he could clean it up in about an hour with arthroscopic surgery.
So...he did exactly that. I had the surgery Friday morning and by Sunday afternoon I was walking without crutches or pain. Minor swelling went away within a week and I was walking a mile and a half on the treadmill 6 days after surgery (The doc didn't like that when i told him, but I have had surgery on this knee before and know what to watch out for...still...not recommended...)!
Kudos, Doc! I really appreciate your work and the work of the fellow docs in your office at Canandaigua Orthopaedic Associates, PC.
