I first messed up my left knee my sophomore year of football and it seemed like it healed during the offseason, so I continued to play on my left knee my junior year of football and then it 'buckled' on me like it did in the past so that is when the trainer and myself knew something was wrong. I got an MRI and I found out that I tore my ACL and meniscus in my left knee and I was devastated to hear the news. I visited two other doctors, but they really didn't explain anything about the surgery or what I was to expect from it. I eventually saw Dr. Miyamoto and he was very helpful and understanding of how I felt, I knew then and there that choosing Dr.Miyamoto to perform my surgery was the right choice. I haven't regretted that decision ever since! The knee feels great and the knee gave me no problems during the football season. Dr. Miyamoto gave me a brace that worked great and although it smelled bad at times due to me being too lazy to wash it, I felt confident to play the sport that I enjoy because I knew that my knee would not 'give out' or 'buckle' on me. I highly recommend that anyone who has the type of injury I had or any other injury, to go see Dr. Miyamoto and get it fixed!
