Before I met with Dr. Krochak and had the MACI cartilage repair procedure on my right knee, I had been dealing with pain in that area for over four years. In high school, I ran cross country, winter track, and spring track, and every time I ran I would feel chronic pain in my knee that would never go away. When I visited with him, he had diagnosed me with Osteochondritis Dissecans and we determined that I needed surgery on my knee. Now that I have recovered from the cartilage regeneration procedure, I have no pain whatsoever in my knee. I can run, jump, and basically do anything without pain or discomfort. Overall, the level of care that I received from Dr. Krochak was outstanding!
