I have a meniscus tear in my left knee due to an accident which happened 6 months ago. I have been seeing an orthopedic surgeon since then. His rooster comb injections (3) did not help, nor did 6 weeks of physical therapy. He also gave me cortisone injections which made it easier to walk temporarily, but when they wore off my knee was as sore and stiff as it was right after the accident. His suggested treatment was more cortisone.
Then I came to see Dr. Minkoff. He injected my knee with ozone (prolozone therapy). The very next day I was walking almost normally, only a slight tightness of a muscle in the back of my leg above the knee. But the knee itself was not stiff and there was no pain. With ozone there are no side effects as there are with cortisone.
Thank you Dr. Minkoff.
