"On Jan. 26th, I just stood up and experienced searing pain in my knee. Had I known what I know now, I would have gone to Orthopedic Associates of Port Huron as soon as possible. Because I didn't know I could do that, I went to my own doctor and ended up wasting an entire week of time trying to get a diagnosis. On Monday, Feb. 3rd, I saw Dr. Scott Heithoff, who assessed my condition, sent me for an MRI and by Feb. 7th, I was diagnosed and scheduled for surgery to repair my torn meniscus. I had the surgery done on Feb. 25th; everything went amazingly well. The staff at the surgery center was all so accommodating and informative. I had such little pain after surgery, that I never even took one pain pill. I started physical therapy on Feb. 28th and have already been released (March 17th) because I am doing so well. The follow up appointment on March 7th with Dr. Heithoff went great. He released me to go back to my regular exercise routine with caution, of course. I was so impressed with the ease of this surgical procedure and I am glad that I had such a knowledgeable and professional doctor, who took care of the problem with such clarity and skill. Thank you, Dr. Heithoff and everyone at Orthopedic Associates of Port Huron, who have made my life so much easier!" -- Sherry A.
