Michael J. Lim, MD 's Expert Contributions
  • Will I be able to swim again after ankle replacement?

    This would be difficult to answer not being the surgeon who will perform it. You need to ask your surgeon regarding limitations and what your recovery will look like. READ MORE

  • My knee grinds when I climb stairs. What can be done?

    It does sound like arthritis, however knee replacements are reserved for painful arthritis. If you are not having pain, then a knee replacement would be premature. However, a good therapy program and an evaluation could help you avoid further degeneration. Pls go to www.MichaelLimMD.com to schedule an appointment. READ MORE

  • Recovery for knee meniscectomy?

    I would direct your questions to the surgeon performing your case. You will likely have some swelling initially, but it should get better in most cases. READ MORE

  • ACL repair

    It depends on several factors. What age you are, What are your physical activity goals, What condition you knee is in. please go to www.MichaelLimMD.com to schedule an appointment and to discuss what your specific goals and needs are. READ MORE

  • I have chronic knee pain

    You should only consider a knee replacement once you have failed all conservative and less invasive measures. Although it is reasonable to have a knee replacement in your 50's, it would be preferable if you are older to reduce the risk of needing another surgery. Other measures include injections, bracing, and physical therapy. However, if you symptoms cause difficulty with sleep or basic activities or bother you more than 50% of your day with conservative treatment, you may be a candidate for a knee replacement. please go to www.MichaelLimMD.com to schedule an appointment.

  • Stabbing knee pain when lying down sleeping

    Especially during growth spurts, one can experience such pains. However it is very possible that you may have tendinitis or irritation of your growth plates that may not show up on XR. An MRI may be needed, but would be guide by a physician. please go to www.MichaelLimMD.com to schedule an appointment. READ MORE

  • Recurring hip pain

    This possibly could be caused by cartilage injury to the hip. An XR and an evaluation can help clarify the cause of this pain. please go to www.MichaelLimMD.com to schedule an appointment. READ MORE

  • Inner thigh hurts when walking fast

    This possibly could be a strain vs. early signs of arthritis. An XR and an evaluation can help clarify the cause of this pain. please go to www.MichaelLimMD.com to schedule an appointment. READ MORE

  • Broken tibia, fibula and hole in ankle, surgeon suggesting amputation

    Recovery from an amputation can be as fast as 6-10 wks. The clear difference btw an amputation and a fusion is the absence of the leg and not requiring bony healing to be effective. Although there are the drawbacks of requiring a prosthetic and need for fitting/ maintenance, healthy individuals can continue an active lifestyle with an amputation. READ MORE
