Brandon Roy Considering Arthroscopic Knee Surgery?

by January 13, 2011

No decisions have been made yet, but according to the Portland Tribune, Roy and the Blazers are considering the procedure to see if it can help alleviate the grinding knee pain: “Roy and team officials flew to the Bay Area last Thursday to meet with Dr. Brian Cole, the team doctor of the Chicago Bulls and one of the world’s foremost experts on articular cartilage repair. Cole is of the opinion that meniscus transplant surgery on Roy, who has had a pair of lateral meniscus operations and is at the bone-on-bone stage with the left knee, is not an option. Cole offered the possibility that an arthroscopic procedure, however, might relieve some of the pain.”
