Dear Dr. Paley, I had originally seen Dr. Minus as I was having problems with my right knee. He ordered an MRI and discovered that I had a torn meniscus. Dr. Minus recommended physical therapy to see if that would correct my problem. Sadly, the blood supply is limited in that area and it did not heal. Now, Dr. Minus was away for 3 weeks and I really needed to get this problem resolved ASAP. Since I am close friends with Allison Lamm, Allison was so helpful, arranging for me to see Dr. McVicker for knee surgery on my meniscus. My husband and I met with Dr. McVicker and he was available the following week so we signed up to proceed.
I am writing to you to tell you how amazing the whole process proceeded. I was operated on at the surgical center adjacent to Palm Beach Orthopedic center. My husband and I were so impressed with Dr. Mcvicker’s team. Lisa, his secretary is by far, the most gracious and efficient assistant. She was always so helpful and never kept me waiting if I had any issues or questions. When Dr. McVicker was unavaiable, his assistant, Liam was there as a great back up and he took care of any inquiries that needed answers. At one point, I called Lisa to find out if I would be able to do Cryo Therapy. She returned my call promptly and told me that Dr. McVicker said it was okay to do Cryo. I am so glad I did as it took away so much of the inflammation, I was able to walk with a more flexible knee and the pain had subsided a great deal. That was at the two week mark and the rest of the recovery was easy. I was able to swim since the stitches had healed and also I was able to ride my bike. At my 8th week check up, I was told I could proceed with my tennis. I started out with hitting the balls on a ball machine with Allison, then I took several lessons, played 2 social games and then played a match for the team that I Captain. That match lasted 2 1/2 hours and I felt okay after the match. I did ice and now I am playing 3 times a week.
I am very pleased with the Paley group, you have an amazing team. The work that is performed within your practice is totally amazing, limb lengthening, club feet reconstructed etc. Kudos to you and your team. I will recommend your group to anyone that needs the best of care.
