In 2016 I made an appointment with Dr Kassab with concerns about my left knee.
Dr Kassab took an x-ray and determined my knee was bone on bone, and that when it interfered with my daily activities, it should be replaced, but not until then. In the fall of 2018 Dr Kassab had my knee injected with Iovera to prepare it for the surgery (which eliminated the pain for a total of 6 weeks – two weeks leading up to surgery and 4 weeks after surgery).
I had the surgery at 7 AM and was walking with a walker and no pain at 10 AM. I went home and was using only crutches within 24 hours. Pain was minimal, I used pain medication when going to bed for 3 nights. I received PT at home for two weeks and made amazing progress. Within a week I was using a cane around the house. After two weeks of PT at home, I had two weeks of PT at a facility. Four months later I was downhill skiing in the Sierra Nevada Mountains at Lake Tahoe.
Here is the shocker, I am 72 years old.
Dr. Kassab is amazing and has a wonderful and caring bedside manner. I would and do recommend him to friends and acquaintances regularly.
