Part of my hatred comes from the surgery being a disaster, but I digress . . .
The orthopedic surgeon I'm seeing for my knee used to work for the St Louis area pro teams (Cardinals, Blues, Rams). He told me Kremcheck isn't very popular amongst his peers. He said he's known as a shameless self-promoter. I asked him if he's considered the best at what he does though and he said not by a long shot.
