Agreed, but more with the microfracture procedure over the meniscus
I am on board there (bolded part). Lots of procedures to substitute for the loss of articular cartilage. But none are nearly as good as the original. Microfracture seems a shorter term solution over other methods as well.
And any good team doctor will know what they are getting and make sure the GM knows.
IMHO, he's likely on borrowed time.
Yup, I'm of similar thought. I wonder what his 'clean up' procedures actually was, though.
We don't know size and location of their particular articular cartilage defects. But in any event so far, microfracture has not been proven an effective long term solution. Especially for high impact sports/professions.
