Articular Cartilage Paste Graft patient story - 2 years post op

Our patient has had knee issues since he was a teenager. (Knee cap disclocation repair, ACL replacement and microfracture surgery to repair damaged articular cartilage.) The microfracture was a temporary solution and not long afterwards he couldn't ski, walk or climb stairs without pain.

We know they are windows to the soul, portals into the mind, and transmitters of emotions, intentions, and desires. Because we don’t always control their transmissions, we fear their exposure. Shouldn’t we start to train our visual communication skills?
