    Dr. Alaia is the best. I was having intense knee pain and swelling for about a month since working out, but intermittently for about 5 years. I was doing physical therapy, acupuncture, taking pain medication and using heat/ice but the pain always came back. I met with Dr. Alaia, and once my MRI was performed and resulted, he recommended surgery to fix my cartilage and a small tear. He made me feel comfortable and answered all of my questions no matter the time of day. He explained to me that there was a chance I would need a second surgery, but he never pushed it on me. Him and his team thoroughly followed up, with phone calls and appointments, and because my symptoms are gone, I do not need the second surgery. As a nurse who consistently runs around and stands all day, I cannot tell you how much this surgery and Dr. Alaia improved my quality of life, from work to exercising and doing everyday things.

    I am now exercising more and in the best shape of my life. Thank you Dr. Alaia!!
