How was your experience with the doctor?I went to Dr. Altchek two years ago for knee surgery after tearing my ACL, and could not have had a better experience. He is one of the best orthopedic surgeons in the country and is a very nice person on top of that. As a result of his surgery my knee is basically as good as new. Within a few months I was running again, and I was back playing sports well ahead of the 6-9 month time period that is usual after ACL surgery.
