When I first saw Dr Gallivan, my left knee was already in a bone-on-bone situation. I had been through 3 surgeries to repair/remove the meniscus, ligament damage; it had been subject to a significant staph infection of the left knee capsule. My knee was very painful, I was unable to run, walk any distance without pain, or exercise.
Dr Gallivan took all of my circumstances into consideration; took extra precautions to prevent a reoccurrence of the staph infection I had years before I ever met him, and provided me with all the medications and therapy that allowed me an excellent result. I feel like I could be the "poster person" for his practice providing me with the best result possible. Following a routine of home therapy for 2 weeks and physical therapy for 6 weeks, and making sure I followed all protocols for icing, and exercise. I was released from care after 8 weeks. On my first Anniversary since the surgery I have no pain, full range of motion in my left knee and most important to me I have the ability to return to my regular exercise routine and the opportunities to engage in play with my grandchildren. What a great gift! Thank you Dr Gallivan and your entire professional staff. You are the BEST!
