    Len I will check for you, my wife works in a hospital in the physical therapy department, her director will be having it done in 3 months and she would only want the best.

    Are there any insurance considerations?

    Len - I feel for you bro!!! I fu&*cked up my knee back in '97. Complete ACL tear and lots of meniscus torn. The meniscus had to be removed. Rehab is a beyatch... You will have to bend your knee more than 90 degrees within 2 weeks following surgery. I had the most trouble with doing that, but did it!! I used Dr. George McGuiness in Stamford Connecticut. His work is still holding up, but crackles and snaps on cold raw days...
    BEST OF LUCK WITH EVERYTHING!!!!! - Hutch

    Thanks guys. No ACL tear, just the meniscus; and a bone fragment. Hopefully they won't have to remove the meniscus. Definitely want to get a second opinion though. Not sure which is more difficult, finding a mechanic for my cars, or a surgeon for myself!

    Last year I had a ski injury (slight PCL damage and a crack to the tibia when some guy on a snowboard in Argentina slammed into me going crazy fast - fortunately it turned out not to require any surgery or particularly special treatment).

    Anyway, a Stanford connection suggested Dr. Scott Rodeo at the Hospital for Special Surgery up on the East Side (http://www.hss.edu/Physicians/Profiles/Rodeo-Scott). He diagnoses a lot of sport-related knee and joint damage, and is the doctor for some sports teams, olympic teams, etc. Since my injury was from skiing, I wanted someone who understood sports injuries and chose him. That said, his practice is by no means limited to sports-related stuff...

    I was very impressed with his knowledge, thoroughness, responsiveness, etc. and even though I ended up not having to have anything done I would have been confident in his work either way.

    Good luck. Knee injuries suck.
