My son doesn't expect much good news about his knee, but he is excited to get to see the facilities.
Don't let them recommend some treatment that makes it unstable, or is too traumatic for the knee. Someone I grew up with was a HS football star and by the time he graduated, his knees were completely toast. By the time he was 46, he had both knees replaced, one twice. He was soooo good, too. He and his two brothers were great multi- sport athletes and their dad pushed them hard, but Dean took the most punishment.
