Knee injuries can severely impact a person’s life. The impact is even more intense in people who are physically active and always on the move. Annika, a lovely lady, had experienced the harshness of the inability to move freely and be active. Last winter, while skiing, she tore her ACL and suffered pain and instability in the knee, and she felt her knee was feeble. The search for a solution to her painful problem brought Annika to Manhattan Orthopedic Care. Before she met Dr. Tehrany and the staff, she was terrified by the idea that she may need surgery. During her appointment with Dr. Tehrany, her fear vanished. While Dr. Tehrany discussed her injury and the best treatment for her torn ACL, Annika experienced relief due to Dr. Tehrany’s tranquility, professionalism, and friendly demeanor. After the thorough examination, Dr. Tehrany told Annika that her diagnosis is torn left medial meniscus with patellofemoral chondromalacia and a complete ACL tear. Unfortunately, knee surgery was the best and most effective treatment. Annika felt highly anxious since she didn’t know what to expect from the surgery. To her, everything felt incredibly scary. Before the surgery, Dr. Tehrany calmly explained to Annika the entire surgical process. He answered every question Annika had, which ensured that Annika was in the hands of dedicated professionals. While the surgery wasn’t the simplest one, everything went perfectly smoothly and well. During the procedure, Dr. Tehrany performed ACL reconstruction, medial meniscectomy, chondroplasty in the patellofemoral compartment, and autograft harvest. The ACL reconstruction was successful, and Annika made a full recovery. Now, almost a year after her injury, she is almost back to her 100% self. Overjoyed that she can enjoy her active lifestyle once again, Annika wrote a lovely review on Google that truly touched us.
I was very upset when I tore my ACL skiing, since I have a very active lifestyle. My top priority was to fix my knee so that I could get back to sports/outdoor activities asap. Dr. Tehrany did a great job on my ACL reconstruction, and now, 11 months later, I am almost 100% back to normal strength and activity. The entire process was as seamless as could be expected for a major surgery, and the office staff was very friendly and helpful. I definitely recommend Dr. Tehrany!
Thank you, Annika. We are honored that you chose us to help you get back to your active lifestyle.
