When I was 25 years old, I began to experience knee pain while sitting at my desk. I was an ex-college athlete, but the life of a forensic accountant was far more painful than any drill I went through in college. I knew something needed to change when I started to cry in a car ride back from the airport due to the pain. That is when I went to see Dr. Cole. Dr. Cole being Dr. Cole did not jump at the chance to cut. He took his time to fully understand my issue. I went through prehab, had a scope, and rehab before we decided that my best option was to utilize donor cartilage and realign my tibia. After surgery, it was a long process with many stumbles and set-backs before I felt like an athlete again. Through hard work, dedication, and an amazing support system, I finally feel like I am back to my athletic self. Since having surgery, I have completed two century bike rides to support the MS society, backcountry skied in Japan, and completed my first triathlon. Most importantly, I am no longer in pain while I am completing my work as a forensic accountant.
