Then here's something to think about - this canadian team diagnosis same way the Munich doc does...http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/news_story/?ID=148844&hubname=
"...Montreal Canadiens team physician Dr. David Mulder, a specialist in abdominal injuries. Mulder will perform the surgery..."
Innovative change regarding this malady will probably come from hockey or soccer/rugby pro's. This guy is surely a player in the AP top doc's catagory...
Btw - Grant's suffering:http://www.orlandosentinel.com/sports/local/orl-magic0606jan06,0,7491797.story?coll=orl-sports-headlines
I've another brief article where Grant states *all* his ankle procedures were easier to overcome than AP (taking in account expectation of turnaround time for rehab to return to play: way too short)
Also - had a bud go see the German doc. He reads this thread and I'd like him to weigh in for himself. But cost was not astronomical (hey, you see Munich) and woman really knew her stuff. I hope for him, a vetern of this complaint (had Meyers & mesh before), that it works out.
