After my first knee surgery failed miserably, I didn’t think there was much to do to get it back to where it was before I had tore my meniscus. I knew that I would have to go through the whole process again, explaining what happened in the previous years with my knee over and over again. Keep in mind, my 1st surgeon didn’t communicate with me at all. He never acted like my surgery was important, that I was just another patient. And quite frankly, I wasn’t able to communicate well with him once he made that careless impression. My step mom had looked up a surgeon in San Diego and came across Scott Hacker. Just after the first appointment with Dr. Hacker, I already felt so much more confident about my knee. I had a total different outlook on my healing and I know for a fact that this change of mind was because of Dr. Hacker. Yes, I was just another patient needing surgery but I really don’t think that is how Scott Hacker views his patients. When needing surgery, it’s very good to be comfortable with your surgeon.. I mean, you’re trusting them to cut you open and practically sew you back together. Anyways, it is now a week after my surgery and I feel brand new. My post surgery appointment went very well, and once again I feel so much more confident all thanks to Dr. Hacker.
