Dr. Lai did a procedure on my husband’s knee. He had two torn meniscus and a lot of debris under the knee cap. He repaired the tears, cleaned out the debris and did a little shaving to smooth out the arthritis. Total expecting him to be in a lot of pain, I asked the Dr. to make sure he had pain pills. He used two pain pills, used his walker once and is doing awesome. Dr. Lai did an awesome job. Thank you, Dr. Lai.
