Patient testimonials

Our philosophy is to not only repair the cartilage damage itself, but to carefully determine and correct the underlying causes of the damage, such as malalignment, ligament instability and loss of meniscal function. This systematic approach has helped us maximize the success rates of our procedures. 


Michelle | Total Knee Replacements

“Five years ago @ BWH you replaced both my knees; I had hiked half the Appalachian Trail. On my new knees, I hiked the 2nd half, completing it this past Saturday. I could not have done it without you!”


Amy | ACI + ACL Reconstruction

“I had two ACL reconstruction surgeries, articular cartilage damage on my femur, and an unstable ACL when I met Dr. Minas. He was able to graft my bone, revised my ACL and replace my missing cartilage through the ACI procedure. I live in Chicago and flew to Boston (where he was practicing at the time) to be his patient, since he was the only surgeon that I was confident could give me the best chance for a successful outcome. My ACI surgery was in July of 2004, and I’m still feeling great. I can run after my 2 young children, exercise daily and live the healthy and active life that I thought was lost before I met him. I can not recommend him highly enough, and to say that I’m eternally grateful for him giving me my active life back is an understatement.”


Jesse | Partial Knee Replacement

“I discovered that although Dr. Minas is a world-class expert in the field of joint preservation, in person, he behaves more like a small-town doctor. He always took the time to listen to my questions and concerns, and he has surrounded himself with wonderful, compassionate people. Now, 20 years after my initial injury, I am so grateful to Dr. Minas and his exceptional staff. As a Florida resident, I was thrilled to hear of his recent move to the Paley Institute in West Palm Beach. But the truth is that I would willing to travel to see him regardless of his practice location, and I’m sure that most of his patients feel the same way. Thank you, Dr. Minas!”


Mike | MACI + High Tibial Osteotomy

“After three hours of hiking, I was exhausted, but of all the parts of me that hurt (every muscle of my legs and feet), my knee was not one. It actually felt better after three hours of scrambling up ladders, rocks, dirt paths and logs that than it did prior to surgery. I was in much worse cardio shape, no question, but my knee actually didn’t hurt. ​ I started finally jogging on a treadmill last week, and I’m up to a half-mile (at 10-minute mile pace) at a time. It’s still sore
