Meniscus tear is the most common knee injury among people of all age. It is exceptionally common among sports enthusiasts who are physically active on a regular basis. Suffering from a torn meniscus can be painful and excruciating, especially for active people who need to put their lifestyle on hold until the pain subsides and the mobility is back to normal. A while ago, Jeffrey Pinard suffered a meniscus tear and the unbearable pain brought him to Dr. Armin Tehrany. During his initial appointment at the Manhattan Office, Jeffrey was diagnosed with a meniscus tear that had caused damage to his knee. As an experienced and knowledgeable orthopedic doctor, Dr. Tehrany had immediately recognized the meniscus tear symptoms –pain, stiffness, swelling, locking, and limited range of motions. Prior to proceeding with treatment, Dr. Tehrany thoroughly explained the arthroscopic knee procedure to Jeffery in order to help him feel comfortable and at peace with the procedure. This calming conversation helped Jeffrey enormously in achieving perfect results after the knee surgery and during his physical therapy. Today, Jeffrey is better than ever before, and he is ready to get back to the golf courses and enjoy his favorite sport once again. Thrilled with the outcome of the arthroscopic meniscus repair in such a short time, Jeffrey was more than happy to share his MOC story 🙂
Video transcription: Hi, I’m Dr. Tehrany, this is my friend Jeffrey Pinard. Jeff was having some problems with his knee, meniscus tear damage, and he is fit to begin with. He was comfortable being able to proceed with an arthroscopic procedure. Jeff, would you mind telling them in your own words? Jeff: Absolutely, it’s the best thing I’ve ever done. If you hesitate it, go do it. I feel so much better. I had many different ways that I thought the surgery was going to go and how it was going to feel, and this is really the best case scenario that I couldn’t even imagine. My friends and family are amazed about what I’ve been able to do on the day of the surgery and on. It’s just been absolutely incredible. Dr. Tehrany: I appreciate it. You deserve a lot of the credits because you are fit to begin with, so for your ability to be disciplined, do the physical therapy well afterward and commit to it twice a week for six weeks was critical. Jeff: Absolutely, and you can’t do it alone, you do need assistance in there, and you need to be disciplined to continue it. I’m looking forward to the spring and getting back out there on the golf course.
