Martin Solomon, Hicksville, NY Knee Replacement Revision
After having one of the best rated surgeons on Long Island perform perform my knee surgery, I went two years with further pain, especially while walking up and down stairs. After complaining to my surgeon for two years and him telling me that there was nothing more that he could do. He suggested I see another doctor for consult. I visited Dr. King who ordered special MRI exams and, in turn, referred me to Dr. Geoffrey Westrich who immediately diagnosed my problem. He set me up for revision surgery of my knee, due to the fact that the original surgery omitted the resurfacing of the patella. Today, I can walk up and down stairs, I have less pain each day, I can stand for several hours at a time and even do a light jog for exercise.
