My Mom went to see Dr. Verde when she was having trouble with pain in her knee and trouble walking. She's 80 years old. He told her she needed a knee replacement. She didn't want to do that at her age, so he told her he could do a procedure where he would scrape all the arthritis from inside her knee, and she should be 75% better after that. That sounded good to her, so she told him to do it. She felt good for one week, and then after that her knee hurt even more than before. I feel that he is just out to make money and instead of promising her that she would be 75% better with this procedure, he should have said that only a knee replacement would help and that was it. He should tell his patients the truth.
