I was hit by a car as a pedestrian and as a result had a broken leg in several places. The leg was set and healed, but over time, I began to have extreme pain in my knee and tibia plateau.
I had 12 surgeries to "clean" things up but nothing was fixing the problem. In walks Dr. Rodeo, who determines what the problem is - my bone healed incorrectly and as a result my whole leg was misaligned and causing extreme stress issues for my tibia and knee. He decided on a course of surgeries to fix the problem, and after 3 years I am now a new person - pain free after more than 12 years. Able to play tennis, ski, climb, box, spin - all thing I could never do before. It was crazy difficult and required a lot of hard work but in the end it was the best decision.
