Dr Lai operated on my knee 6 weeks ago. I am making good progress and feeling so much better. He did an outstanding job! I suffered an injury 5 years ago. The MRI was not showing a torn meniscus and other damage I had to the articular cartliage and patella. In fact, my last MRI showed there was no damage at all... Absolutely frustrating! Dr Lai was the only Dr that actually listened to me and was discerning enough to know that the MRI was not reflective of the truth. I especially appreciate this about him. I am so thankful!
