The Best Knee Surgery -Ever

I am a maniac. Whenever I start a new hobby or sport I have to do it every day 3 hours a day, I just can't quit. Five years ago I got really into squash, took lessons and competed in regional and national competitions here in Japan.

I was a force to be reckoned with until 5 months ago when my knee kept locking suddenly, ANY movement was incredibly painful and worst of all high-heels became a new form of torture. Turns out that in my zeal I torn my meniscus and needed arthroscopic surgery.

Now that I am based in Japan going to the doctor and being admitted to hospital is no walk in the park. Luckily, just 30 minutes south of my city is Dr. Suzuki, one of the top arthroscopic knee surgeons in Japan and he speaks English. I just got out of the hospital today and am walking around like nobody's business.

I spent the week getting IVs (the Japanese love them - you get one for a bee sting!) doing 1000 leg lifts/day and looking over the rice paddies that surround the Suzuki Clinic. All and all a really great experience.

Surgeries are getting better and better day by day. Some were thought to be nearly impossible at first. You can also check out one of the best organ transplant India hospitals that serve with great service and a great successful rate.
