The mended meniscus
“I limped around for a little while,” says Maureen Mills of Moosic, Pa. A co-owner of the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Railriders, she suffered with a torn meniscus for almost a year.
During a trip to Disney World with her 8-year-old daughter, Maureen was constantly looking for a place to sit down and rest. “I realized, I can’t do this to her. She needs a mom who can move! That was the moment I decided to call John Doherty — he’s the guy for knees.”
Scranton orthopaedic surgeon John Doherty, MD, repaired Maureen’s torn meniscus in an outpatient procedure. “By 11 o’clock that morning, I was back in my own bed. That’s the beauty of having surgery so close to home.”
Dr. John Doherty provides care for patients at Geisinger Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine in Scranton.
