"On August 3, I injured my left knee in the line of duty. It was about ten days after the injury when I first saw Dr. Busbee. For those ten days I was in a lot of pain and could not straighten my left leg out all of the way. I had surgery on August 21, at 7:00 a.m. When I woke up after surgery my left leg, though still in some pain, felt considerably better. After two days of using crutches I was back up and walking, and feeling much better. Since starting rehab my knee is getting stronger and feels better every day. Dr. Busbee did a wonderful job and I am looking forwarded to a full recovery and a quick return to work." -- Joseph G.
