#1: Re: Knee problem - what kind of doctor should I see?

Posted on 2006-07-15 04:04:27 by Ken

I injured my knee a year ago and saw a Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
specialist at a university sports medicine clinic. He diagnosed it as a torn
meniscus and ordered an MRI that confirmed that the meniscus was torn. He
wants me to do PT for a month and then look at my options. My concern with
an othopaedic surgeon was that he would automatically tell me I need
surgery.

&gt; I want to have my knee problem diagnosed and I'm not sure what kind of
&gt; doctor to see.
&gt;
&gt; xrays of my knees do not show any problems. My chiropractor thinks I
&gt; have a torn meniscus. My PCP thinks it might be chondromalacia
&gt; patellae. He will not order an MRI for some reason but does want me to
&gt; go to PT. I don't want to do PT without a more definitive diagnosis.
&gt;
&gt; Luckily my health insurance allows me to see specialists without
&gt; referrals.
&gt;
&gt; What type of specialist should I see? I assume not an orthopedist
&gt; since the xrays don't indicate any bone problems or arthritis.
&gt;
&gt; I don't know exactly how I hurt my knee. I bent down one day and got a
&gt; sharp pain on the side of my knee cap. Since then it hurts when I use
&gt; the stairs or sit down. It's also starting to bother me when I walk,
&gt; but not too much - yet.
&gt;
&gt; I'm not a runner but know that the people on this board have lots of
&gt; experience with knee pain.

My orthopedist has *never* suggested surgery except as a last resort for my
various injuries (two did require surgery -- both torn rotator cuffs).
