I am a 67 year old woman and very active. Dr. Shubin Stein listened to me, understood the importance of regaining as much of my former activity as possible. Other surgeons were quick to advise the cookie cutter surgery of a full knee replacement and overlook the results of the MRI. Dr. Shubin Stein looked at the facts and recognized while my patella and patella femoral ligament needed replacement the remainder of my knee was not compromised. I trusted her judgement because she could have performed either surgery. The icing on the cake is that she is obviously a terrific manager as well because every medical and non medical person on her team are terrific. Erika repeatedly eased my insurance anxieties and Sarah was determined that my rehab facility followed protocol.
