He was one of my first famous athlete patients to undergo arthroscopy in the mid 70’s. I remember it well as I was lecturing at a meeting in Chicago suburb and his agent arranged for me to come down town and perform a diagnostic arthroscopy under local anesthesia. I did not tell anyone where I went and as my custom I created no publicity. I forgot about it until today.
