Ruptured ACL, Torn MCL, PLC, & Meniscus Knee Surgery Patient 1 year post-op
I'd ruptured my ACL, torn my MCL, had to have reconstruction done on the PLC, and the meniscus was torn. I was eager to get back to my lifestyle of travel. I'm traveling with very interesting people. Orthopedic surgeons that had trained, or that had helped US Olympic skiers, were saying, "First of all, we don't know what to do with you. And, generally we don't do anything. We don't do any surgery on somebody who ... a woman who's 72." None of those hindrances existed for Dr. Stone. It was like, okay, let's get you up. And then, he even added that he hopes I'm skiing until I'm 100.
Cynthia W. Profile
Cynthia came into The Stone Clinic with a ski injury to her knee that other orthpaedic surgeons described her meniscus and ligament tissue as "crab meat," forcing her to eliminate sporting activities and leaving her unable to perform the travel necessary for her job with the US State Department. While other doctors told Cynthia there wasn't any solution other than activity reduction, Dr. Stone was able to successfully rebuild Cynthia's knee with our BioKnee program at age 72. Within a month after surgery, Cynthia returned to her global work travel, wildlife photography, and looks forward to skiing again as she progresses.
