Check out LARS ligaments. My son had his ACL-MCL_PCL done 2yrs ago with quick & amazing results. We had to travel to Vienna but was worth everything. Dr. Barisani is great--recovery time was 4 weeks---no kidding! They do all body ligaments--repair is done with artificial ligaments. Have been used worldwide since 1992.
I went to see a sports physician in the city (sydney) and they had me go see the guys at sydney sports & orthopaedic physio on macquarie street.
All i can say is they are awesome. They have diagnosed and managed my knee so well i now don't need the op i thought i was going to have to have
If you have a knee problem check them out www.ssop.com.au
For anyone out west, I go to Winston Hills Physio (http://winstonhillsphysio.com.au) and see Mark Macdonald. I have been seeing him for any lower limb injuries since I was a teenager, I'm now 25 and am currently being treated for a torn ACL in preparation for surgery.
He's always been great and gotten me back on my feet asap. He's also had a stack of experience with sporting injuries.
Recently seen Ray Crowe at Epworth and had scope at Latrobe, was recommended to me as the best of the best , so far can't disagree
I agree, Dr Gursel is a good surgeon and so far my knee is all good after my ACL reconstruction, however it is only the first week.
You need to ask lots of questions and try to be well informed about the procedure. Unfortunately I had a rude and condescending anaesthetist who failed to inform me of my choices and a procedure was carried out that I did not wish to have and was not part of the operation. Please make sure you are well informed and that they take you seriously if you say you have changed your mind about the operation!
I am in Sydney south.
I have been given two choices of ortho Dr Mark Ridhalgh Miranda or Dr Neville Rowden Hurstville
Any suggestions on which one?
After my experience with the world renowned Merv Cross I can say that I WOULD NOT recommend him. I have had 2 surgeries on my medial meniscus and am looking at a third surgery because of his poor skill. It was supposed to be a straight forward operation on a tear of the medial meniscus and now 5 months, 2 surgeries and many hours of physio later, I am still in pain. 1st MRi showed a definite tear. The second MRI post op showed a tag of the meniscus had been left (poor cutting skill by the surgeon) and was still causing irritation. Now the third and latest MRI shows a further fragment floating from the meniscus and I am looking at a third surgery but this will not be with Merv Cross. He may have been good in his day but he is outdated and has very poor bedside manner
I am seeing Dr chris kondogiannis next week. Anyone have any reviews on him?
