    There are 3 Dr.s in our cycling club. I think we are a small club. Check a club or bike shop. Maybe they can recommend a cyclist Doctor. Possibly someone who has even gone to him/her.

    When I hurt my shoulder. I went to a Ortho Surgon who was listed in the "Sports Medicine". He new nothing about cycling.

    Good Luck

    A good sports medicene doctor should be able to treat your knee. The important thing is a GOOD doctor. My riding buddy's doc told him to quit cycling for all the stupid bravo serria sterotypes we all hear and deal with.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    You need to find one that does. Find a doc that deals with cyclists, and our injuries. They are out there, and worth the extra time/$$. You only have one body.

    Good luck!

    you have probably found this link already but it helped me. http://www.cptips.com/knee.htm

    Also when you do your doctor shopping ask to talk to the doc's chief nurse. the nurse will have a far better idea if he/she actually deals with cyclist knees very often.
