Playing pickup basketball is a routine activity for Justin Walker. What wasn’t routine was the way his knee swelled-up after a weekly game, making it painful and difficult to walk. Having played sports his entire life, it wasn’t a total surprise to Justin when the MRI showed a meniscus tear.
“Dr. Sisco sat me down and walked me through my options. He also listened to my recovery goals, one of which was to return to the court as soon as possible. Based on that discussion, the entire team at Randolph Health Orthopedics & Sports Medicine created a plan to get me back on the court safely.”

Testimonials: Letters and Emails from Patients
I want to express my thanks to Dr. Durrani and his staff for the excellent care I received related to my spine surgery on November 18. I had several visits with Dr. Durrani trying to decide if and when I should have it. I had a page of questions which he patiently answered and explained the procedure and how it would help me. I also had concerns because of the COVID crisis, but he also alleviated my concerns that Randolph Hospital was a safe environment. My spine surgery was successful, and I am recovering very well. I feel very thankful that Randolph County has a competent and compassionate spine surgeon in Dr. Durrani.
I recently had an appointment with Dr. Jeffrey Yaste of Randolph Health Orthopedics & Sports Medicine to evaluate my hip for chronic pain due to an ice hockey injury. I was extremely pleased with my experience at the Practice! The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful, and I was in the waiting room only for a few minutes before they called me back to be seen. All of the nurses and tech staff were great as well…I never waited for more than a minute or two between having preliminary discussions with the nurse, being taken back for x-rays, and then having Dr. Yaste come in to evaluate me and diagnose my injury based on the results. And Dr. Yaste was the perfect combination of being knowledgeable, professional, thorough and compassionate! After thoroughly diagnosing my injury, he took the time to find out how my injury was affecting my day-to-day life, what my goals were for the future (being a sports-related injury), and then gave me a great recommendation for treating my injury. I’m really excited to work with Dr. Yaste and the staff of Randolph Health Orthopedics & Sports Medicine on my road to recovery!!
