Thomas - OCD Lesion Graft

In the spring of 2014, just after finishing a round of golf, I picked up my bag and felt a "catch" in my knee. By the time I got home, I could not straighten my leg, and there was quite a bit of swelling. My PCP sent me to a local orthopedic surgeon who diagnosed an OCD lesion, via MRI. He recommended a total knee replacement.

Since I was an active 55 year old, I wanted to see if there was an alternative to that radical course. A friend recommended Dr. Donald Mazur.

Dr. Mazur performed a arthroscopic bone graft to repair the lesion. 

I've since returned to all my former athletic pursuits, including weekly basketball games, and in May of this year, I complete my first Tough Mudder. Not bad for a 59 year old. I could not have the quality of life I enjoy now if I had undergone that knee replacement. 

Rothman and Dr Mazur kept me in the game.

I've included some pics from the Tough Mudder. You'll see a patella tendon brace. That transient tendonitis predates the OCD lesion and the surgery
