    Orthopedic--knee problems

    Anybody know of a good orthopedic--preferably one with lots of knee experience?
    I have been dealing with knee problems for over 2yr and can no longer ride.
    Not happy

    Thanks in advance!

    Dr Douglas Freedburg at Arizona Sports Medicine is amazing! He fixed my shoulder last year and is also the Cardinals team doc so he has TONS of experience with knees..

    Here's the guy who just did my ACL replacement. Very fast recovery (4 weeks for full range of motion!).

    My other knee was done by Dr. Evan Lederman but I'm not sure where he's practicing now. Last I heard he was with TOCA (another highly recommended group, especially for athletic people).

    When I broke my ankle (tibia and fibula) in nine places and completely ripped my ACL, PCL, LCL, PT, meniscus, and broke my femur this guy fixed it and fixed it good!

    Dr. Randall R. Hardison MD

    (480) 899-2101
    2905 W Warner Rd Ste 19
    Chandler, AZ 85224

    He is one of the three major stakeholders of the Arizona Orthopedic Surgical Hospital.

    He is an arrogant bastard, but is very, very good IMO. He works on mostly AZ Cardinals and Motocross guys.

    I basically ripped my leg off at the knee and he was able to put it all back together again. It was a wakeboarding accident and I had compound fractures the tibia, fibula, and femur.

    When I had knee issues for a few months, guys on here recommended Dr. Chick: Phoenix Orthopedic Group

    I could not possibly have been more satisfied with the outcome. TONS of experience. Was the Team doc for the Cardinals. Super friendly, was always on time, very good at explaining what was going on without making me feel stupid.

    Would hands down recommend him again.

    Been with Dr. Cummings who is with TOCA. Not bad work and he works with the ASU Football too. I was just about to call him up for some hyaluronic acid injections as well. I can ride, but walking kinda sucks!
    Today's the day I eat bikes.

    +1 on Lederman (one of the team Docs for the Suns/Mercury/ASU athletes). Lots of recommendations from PTs I know.
    Yes, he is w/ T.O.C.A..
