Ratings for Dr. Gilbert Yee
Dr. Yee performed an ACL hamstring graft on my 16 year old son's left knee in July 2015. He also removed a part of the meniscus that was flaking off. After recovery, my son's knee would lock up when he left it bent for a while and it was also a bit loose. If he places his foot on a stool and tightens the calf muscle and knee joint, the looseness in the knee joint is clearly visible. An MRI a few months after the surgery showed that the graft was still intact. Since my son had complaints, Dr. Yee suggested that one option was to go back under the knife again and check, and if he did that then he might as well put in a new graft. But since my son's left hamstring was already used, he suggested using allograft (from a cadaver), which I was totally against, or from his other leg which I wasn't keen on either. Anyways, it's almost two years since my son's surgery and his knee still locks up when he keeps it bent for any length of time - like sitting in class at school - he just extends his leg and unlocks it - this happens many times a day and it's become second nature now. He never went back to his favourite sport of soccer and I guess he never will as he will be starting university this September. I'm hoping there'll be advances in medical science in the not-too-distant future - perhaps stem cell and/or gene therapy will fix his knee for good so he'll be able to play soccer with his kids. Dr. Yee did an OK job - but I wish the outcome was better.
I have being seeing Dr Yee since 2013 for a number of foot and knee problems. In 2014 we did all the paper work for a bunion op and till today 2017, nothing is scheduled. In 2016 we did all the paperwork for partial knee replacement schedule for may 2017, never got a date fr his office . But this week, they left a message that the June operation ? will not take place. No surprise ! If he is unqualified to do any of these why wasted years of my time !! Be ware and stay away from him and his office.
Had my surgery February 14, 2014. ACL graft, MCL repair and removal of meniscus. First month slow recovery. Even after 10 weeks there is still swelling but walking now with ACL brace. Considering the extent of the surgery I am doing very well . Dr Yee is utmost professional. He shows concern for his patients, takes time to explain procedure and recovery. Extremely knowledgable.
I'm a 28 year old male that had an ACL reconstruction with hamstring graft surgery performed two weeks ago by Dr. Yee. Surgery went as expected and with two physiotherapy visits able to bend knee to 90°. inflammation has gone down substantially and have regained control over quads. able to stand on both feet fine with immobilizer and should be able to walk within the month.
Personable and knowledgeable. Explained procedure, options and likely outcome very clearly. Work was neat and results are good. Healing seems to have taken longer than usual for an arthroscopic procedure on the knee, but I have nearly gained full and normal use 6 months after the surgery.
