During a tense moment in the game, 17 year old Andrew jumped up to head the soccer ball and landed twisting his left knee. As he tried to get up he could not straighten his leg, his knee was locked. Dr. Alan Nasar diagnosed him with a meniscal tear requiring surgery. Dr. Nasar performed an arthroscopic meniscus repair with Dr. Berkowitz assisting. Within a week after surgery Andrew was back to most activities. Andrew’s parents stated “Andrew is very busy preparing for college next year. With Dr. Nasar’ s expertise we knew Andrew would recover quickly and finish his Eagle Scout project.”
“Dr. Nasar reassured me that he would have me back on the field and he did! He provided lots of information and explained everything. I really trust him”.
