  • Hi Dr. Patel!,

    Last week, I traveled to Harlan, Kentucky where I completed my seventh mission trip! Time flies when you’re having fun! The week flew by and we helped so many people and touched so many lives while doing so. I met more people and reconnected with old friends who I worked with and met in the past while down there. Here are some pictures of my week! Last Monday, we kicked off our week with a 9-2:30 work day and snuck in a mile and a half, 659 foot incline, 40 minute hike up a mountain! Last year I had to sit this one out, but I was back in action this year and wasn’t even the least bit sore the next day. Knee is feeling amazing and I’m so thankful for the surgery. It keeps me doing things I love and even better, pain free! We returned Saturday and I ended up going up to my friends lake house in Michigan and spent all of Sunday boating. We decided to do some wake surfing off the back of her boat and when I returned Sunday evening, I for sure thought my mom would’ve had a coronary when I showed her what I did that day. Again, I woke up Monday and not the least bit sore in my knee or legs at all. (Arms, and back are a COMPLETE different story!!!!) I haven’t been partaking in water sports since my first knee surgery because I truly never felt 100%. Glad to say I AM BACK! 

    Thank you so much to you and your team for getting me back to my normal self. I feel stronger than ever and I finally feel free to do the things I did before my first surgery! 

    Thanks for everything!

  • Kevin who had re-alignment surgeries and cartilage restoration to both knees after dealing with bone on bone arthritis on the inside of both knees for over 10 years.

  • Patient story

    This young gentleman came to us with his mom over a year ago with issues in both knees. He played through the issues at a high level in soccer. When we decided to correct his knees with major realignment and cartilage restoration surgeries. He knew it would be a long road. I was expecting him to ask me when he could play soccer again, but instead he asked me one thing, "Can I go to my senior prom without crutches?"

    Thank you for making this possible for Breckin. We greatly appreciate it.

  • Did ACL/MCL surgery on this high school baseball player and he's back on the field playing without restrictions

  • Patrick - Left Knee Bucket handle Meniscus

    Patrick is a 15 year old athlete who came to me after he re-tore his lateral meniscus after initial surgery to repair by another surgeon. He had a large bucket handle tear of the meniscus and I was able to get a nice repair on it. We used some additional biologic techniques to get the meniscus to heal quicker and better than his first surgery. He was very compliant after surgery and worked hard with physical therapy. We released him at 5 months and he’s working his way back to all his sports and happy to be without pain.

  • Patient story

    Hello from Beijing! Look what I did today! It was spectacular! A gorgeous crisp Autumn day as we hiked a lesser visited section of The Great Wall. My knees held up great! Thanks so much for your support & working with me to get these knees in good shape for this special day that I have dreamed of since 6th grade! I hiked to the 20th watch tower, which is the farthest tourists can go on this section (just about to the top of this photo).

  • Dr. Patel is a wonderful Dr. He is very kind and empathetic. He is extremely knowledgeable about the procedures he does. He reattached a torn meniscus root in my right knee and three days after surgery, I was amazingly pain free for the first time in months. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to try to save their knee after injury. I can't say enough good things about him. I am a nurse, so I am kind of picky with my medical caregivers. He is GREAT!

  • Patient story

    “Thank you for giving me my knee back.” She’s a young mom who was in constant pain because of a cartilage defect on her patella (kneecap). I did an Autologous Chondrocyte Implantation on her patella (ACI) where we took a sample of her own cartilage and grew it in a lab and put it back in her knee. We also shifted her kneecap (tibial tubercle osteotomy) so it would not cause future issues.

  • Active lady who had severe right knee arthritis and varus (bow-legged) deformity prior to surgery. We corrected her alignment and arthritis with a robotic assisted partial knee replacement done as an outpatient surgery. She is feeling great after only 6 weeks. On the photos the right knee appears on the left (mirror), the pre-surgery and post-surgery photos show correction of varus (bow-legged) deformity.

    Dear Doctor Patel,

    I definitely did not forget that I would let you know how the Chicago Marathon turned out and thanks to you putting up with my requests (No, I can’t rest the hamstring – I need to run this marathon!) — I did complete the marathon! I wanted you to know how appreciative I am of your patience, and expertise and willingness to treat me like an athlete rather than just an older runner. You and your staff are fantastic!

    Thanks again and happy holidays!

  • “The service we received was first class and exceptional beginning with the valet, Stan, and assistant, Julio, who helped us get out of the car. Everyone we met on Dr. Patel’s team was friendly, concerned and professional. Dr. Patel himself was warm, understanding and explained everything completely when showing us the x-rays. And then there’s Mike who fitted the new knee brace who was absolute delightful and caring. We were lucky to find such a great team on short notice. Our whole experience was unmatched to any other doctors we have visited. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

  • “Dr. Patel is top notch. His exam was thorough and complete. He took the time to compare results from prior injury with new exam results and even offered to call me back on weekend with those results to give me clarity and direction on my injury. This doctor is knowledgeable, motivated, and does not drag his feet. The patients problem becomes his focus and he cares 100%.”

  • “Dr. Patel, performed my ACL reconstruction surgery along with pre and post op visits. During the pre op visit Dr. Patel was able to explain my condition in detail and delivered options to develop a treatment plan. This plan included ACL reconstruction surgery. The surgery was performed with great success and no complications. I was really happy with the way Dr. Patel and his staff comforted me before the surgery and through out my recovery. His communications skills are excellent always setting realistic expectations for recovery and helping me understand what my total recovery would look like.”

  • “Dr. Patel provided me with excellent care and treatment. From the first consultation, to surgery, and throughout the follow-up he gave clear and concise explanations of my condition and what to expect. He eased my concerns and gave me confidence that everything was going to be okay. I’m recovering way ahead of schedule and know that I will be back to 100% soon thanks to his great work. I don’t want to have to go through a surgery and recovery ever again but if I do Ronak will be my surgeon.”
