Re: Votto No Longer Using Crutches, Could Return Early
I am no medical expert - but I have watched (observation room) Dr. Kremchek do torn menicus surgery as he did my wife's surgery last year (she has had both knees done as she is a competitive volleyball player). Not entirely sure - but from my understanding a typically torn menicus involved basically "trimming" the tissue in the knee and flushing the knee out to get any particulate matter out. The rehab - which Beacon Ortho has the best in Cincy by far (I 've evaluated everyone) - is aggressive to strengthen the knee back. With Joey being a workout type guy - I m guessing the chances of re-injuring the knee are slim - additionally with fact that it was an "awkward" slide that caused the injury.
