Recovery has been going well. I had minimal pain afterwards and have been improving each day.
BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ (PRWEB) January 11, 2012
Greg DeAngelis, 29, of Hoboken, recently became the 10,000th patient to be treated in 2011 at Summit Medical Group’s Ambulatory Surgery Center. Mr. DeAngelis, formerly of Springfield, underwent knee arthroscopy to repair a meniscal tear.
Mr. DeAngelis said of his experience, “Everyone was so nice, which made this relatively easy. I was in and out pretty quickly and despite having had surgery, I felt pretty good that day. Recovery has been going well. I had minimal pain afterwards and have been improving each day.”
Summit Medical Group orthopedic surgeon, David D. Bullek, M.D., performed the brief procedure. Bullek noted that his patient would be able to walk the day after his surgery. DeAngelis, a software developer, will be returning to work soon.
Summit Medical Group Ambulatory Surgery Center Director Roy Naturman, M.D., notes, "We are pleased to have had the honor of caring for so many patients this year. He adds, "Our complication rates are extremely low and we take pride knowing that each of our patients receives expert care from our skilled physician, nursing, and administrative staff."
