Quick Update on the Knee

Jul 14, 2016 Eric Toussaint 6 Comments

So a few Wednesdays ago, I got a cortisone shot and my pain went away but my popliteal cyst was still large enough that is was causing pain in my knee.

I couldn’t get in to see my regular Doc at the Washington Hospital Center so I called in a favor. I have an old High school friend that is an orthopedic surgeon in Woodbridge (that was a fun drive from Bethesda!!). Anyway the practice is amazing and they drained the cyst…I literally didn’t even feel the needle go in and had immediate relief. A big thank you to NOVA Othopedic and Spine Care!! http://www.novaorthospine.com

I took it easy for a few more days after having the cyst drained and contacted another buddy of mine that introduced me to another Doctor whose office is only five minutes from my condo. I love the guys at the Washington Hospital Center but that isn’t the funnest drive either. Considering my aggro lifestyle why not establish a relationship with a Doctor thats right around the corner.

That being said yesterday I wend to see Dr. James Gilbert based upon the recommendation. Lovely office, very modern (all my paperwork was done online) and I was seen promptly. Dr. Gilbert has a great bedside manner and is all to familiar with the “aging athlete” with a hard head scenario. I have scheduled an MRI and will see him again at the end of July to review the images.

Check out Dr. Gilbert’s practice…hopefully you don’t need it but so far I like what I see!

James E. Gilbert, MD
