Soccer captain rises to #1 in conference with full recovery!
Ratings Ratings Ratings Ratings Ratings - December 06, 2018

After suffering an ACL tear my freshman year of high school, I thought my sports career would never be the same. I was cleared to return to return to sports just 5 months later and was on the ultimate sports high, until I suffered another instability event and my knee pain returned. MRIs, X-rays and another diagnostic arthroscopy by the original surgeon showed no structural damage, but I knew something was just not right. After my first appointment with Dr. Cole, I knew I was in good hands. He was caring, compassionate, and he listened to me. He was an expert in evaluating a multiply operated 3 sport-adolescent athlete whose main goal was to return for her senior year of sports. Dr. Cole made the diagnosis, repaired my medial meniscal tear, and his incredible work and recovery path allowed me to return as varsity volleyball, basketball, and soccer captain and ultimately win #1 in conference. Now, I am able to do any activity without second-guessing if my knee can handle it. Thanks to Dr. Cole my knee finally feels like my old, pre-injury knee. Not only is he a superb surgeon, I consider him my friend.
