I am currently a 6th year student an I tore my ACL in a Gaelic football blitz in 2017.
Mihai diagnosed the rupture in my left knee. I was heartbroken as soon as he told me the news, as sport was such a huge part of my life, but his empathy and reassurance comforted me to go through with the surgery.
As a 16 year old I found this whole experience very daunting. Mihai performed an ACL reconstruction and extra-articular procedure and with the help of my physio and family I started my recovery. The beginning was a very tough experience for me.
Looking back now, my father always brings up a question I asked Mihai before my surgery, I asked whether or not I would regain my strength and speed to its full capability, at the time Mihai had a fourth year student in with him doing work experience who had the same injury and surgery done by Mihai and he answered my question saying he was stronger and faster. I can now completely agree with him. Through this tough experience I have learnt such discipline and know what my body is truly capable of.
Last year I played in Croke Park with Meath senior ladies, this year I've played in the division 3 league title with Meath which we won, I also won a Leinster A title with Meath minors.
Mihai did such an excellent job, thank you Mihai for everything.
Three years after surgery my knee feels entirely normal. I just finished a 10 km marathon in Toronto for charity . All possible because of your surgical skills.
Thank you for preserving my meniscus and making possible for me to return to long distance running.
I have severe arthrtis in my knee at a very young age (40 yo) and I'm trying to delay having a knee replacement.
Mr Vioreanu immediately put me at ease as soon as I walked into his clinic. Mihai took his time to answer all my questions and concerns and I walked away feeling that now I had a plan in place to manage my knee condition.
I highly recommend Mr Vioreanu. I felt listened to and his advice was really appreciated.
