Botched Surgery

I visited Dr Johnston to have some swelling on my knee reduced. My acl reconstruction in Logan by Dr Gobal was very successful 25 years prior, but i was told I'd have to have the torn meniscus trimmed at some point. Dr Johnston agreed and said it was a simple procedure and I would be back to 100% in only 3 days. When I woke from surgery he had done a lateral release, cutting a hole in my lateral tendon, drilled holes in my femur etc saying it was a small chance that it might help. Six years later my strongest leg is now my weakest and still swollen. I moved out of state within 3 days of that surgery. When I returned and related my experience to him, he said indignantly, " who on earth would do that?!" I said, you did. He flushed and started offering the latest anti inflammatory. Needless to say I won't be returning. For a orthopedic surgeon he doesn't grasp bio mechanics to well.
