    Unhappy Need Arthroscopic Knee Surgery ASAP

    Last night for the 2nd time I blew out my right knee. I live in Santiago and need the name of an excellent doctor here that can perform this particular surgery.
    If not in Santiago I don't have a problem traveling to the capital or the North coast. It hurts like hell so the sooner the better. Thanks in advance....

    I saw Dr. Enrique Anico Vargas @ HOMS (#512 in the professional building) for my broken scapula and was highly impressed.

    Hillbilly referred me to him, and he knows who is who in Santiago.

    I've used Dr Andres Garcia with good results. He has been rebuilding knees for many years and supposedly well reknowned. He's at Clinica Corominas 809-580-1171 x7231.

    Thank you everyone for such a rapid response. You can always count on DR1'ers to help someone out of a jam. I just took in 2 homeless kittens that after I fed them 1 time they decided they liked my food and decided to stay. I was playing with one of them last night and reached down to grab his fast little body trying to get away from me and my knee tore. So, I will contact the Dr's and I guess the first one that can see me right away will be the one I go to. And I thought I was SOL.......

    If you could do it over again, would you take in the 2 kittens?

    Default Dr. Alfredo Guerrero Krantz, Ortopédico & Traumatólogo, SD

    Waytogo, as I told you in PM, my friend swears she has the best orthopedic doc in SD. I e-mailed a doctor friend of hers [my friend doesn't "do" e-mail] in SD to get the contact info and here's the answer [no appt needed apparently]:

    "Dr Alfredo Guerrero Krantz ib clinica. Abel gonzalez norte
    809 540-6856. He is there m w f in the morning and all afternoons. I usually go before 2 pm so I am first. It is in order of who comes first
    He is very nice and very capable"
