Having a few issues from my initial ACL reconstruction (not performed by Mr.Bhattee), I wanted to have a second opinion on the various complications I had. Mr. Bhattee provided consultancy and suggested a knee arthroscopy to check for any issues and clear out the knee. The surgery went well and Mr.Bhattee used my existing scars which was great, as this avoids multiple scar sites. Post surgery, I returned to playing football, however, I had re-ruptured my ACL and needed to under-go ACL Revision surgery. Mr. Bhattee suggested a knee osteotomy and a new donor ACL graft for the ACL revision. This surgery was meant to completed in a single surgery, however, it was performed in 2 stages. I wish I knew this could be a possibility ahead of the surgery, but I trusted Mr. Bhattee's decision. The osteotomy went well and rehab has been continuous, as I needed to prep myself for the ACL revision. One of my biggest concerns was using a donor graft and my body rejecting it, Mr.Bhattee put my mind at ease, but still stated that there could be possibility of rejection. I am now 5 weeks post surgery and things are going well. Mr. Bhattee has suggested follow-up consultations and has provided me with his PA's email address should I have any questions or concerns. Mr. Bhattee calls and responds efficiently. Mr. Bhattee earns my high recommendation.
