Meniscus transplant patient testimonial - 7 month post op.

Share this post

Brandon had a meniscus transplant some years after having part of his meniscus removed due to an injury. His knee had become painful and his doctor had told him that he would have arthritis in a few years and ultimately ended up with an artificial knee replacement. After his meniscus transplant at the Stone Clinic, he stayed 7 weeks in San Francisco to rehabilitate. He came 5 days a week to work with our physical therapists.
