My daughter had a torn memiscus years ago at age 17 and I wish I had taken her to Cleveland Clinic where the athletes were treated. She was
not given RX for therapy exercise which would have strengthed her leg muscles. After 45 years, she has metal replacing her knee joint and is doing well
Look for the best orthopedic doctor near you. Look on the Internet at the different major medical clinics' web sites and see what information you can glean.
Sometimes Angie's List is a good tool for doctors. There are web sites that rate doctors/physicians.
Wish Blondie the very best and knowing she is very intelligent, will make a good decision once the pain/discomfort subsides.
