Wade Regrets Knee Surgery During College
(Miami HEAT Dwyane) Wade said that if more of a long-term approach was used when he had his meniscus surgery in 2002, following his sophomore season, he may not have as many issues today.
“My knee problems and the things I’ve dealt with started from that,” Wade said. “That was  years ago and technology was different and the way you approach things was different.
“At that moment, if everyone looked ahead and said, ‘Dwyane’s going to have a 20-year career, maybe we should do something different,’ maybe I wouldn’t have [knee issues]. At that time it was to get me back on the basketball court and do what is best.”
