Delana L. Merenda – Knee – Arthroscopic Meniscus Repair

I had a torn meniscus due to a bad fall that was repaired by Dr. Haynes with an arthroscopy on July 3, 2014. I just want to share how happy I am that my knee pain and overall problems associated with this injury have been drastically reduced. In fact, I feel like I’m pretty much back to normal. This injury was devastating for me since I’m very active and have never been limited in my activities. I walk a lot and was determined I would not be restricted in this. To help, I went to physical therapy for one month and they helped me tremendously with range of motion and gaining my strength back. Not all people require or need PT. In fact, my husband had his meniscus repaired by Dr. Haynes over a year ago and he did not need any PT. I guess it depends on the extent of the injury and anatomy. I am now back on my treadmill and walking like I did before. We just got back from a trip to Hawaii where we hiked and walked a lot, and went snorkeling. My knee did just fine – no problems! When we returned, we went to a wedding and I did my share of dancing, in high heels, with no issues! Dr. Haynes and his Team are great at taking care of their patients and getting them going again. I would highly recommend him if you have any knee issues. Please don’t put up with your knee pain; get it taken care of!
