He placed first in the Cincinnati Flying Pig 5K in 2007.

Shoulder repair: Bankart surgery is a repair of the anterior inferior shoulder capsule and labrum--the structures that stabilize the shoulder against dislocation in that direction. Historically it was done open, through an incision along the front of the shoulder. Arthroscopic techniques are now most common. Results are good when properly indicated. Here is a video of the surgery: http://youtu.be/Y5zshD_oxnU

See knee specialist: Based on that limited description I'd consider ACL tear (instability), meniscal or cartilage injury (clicking swelling), and saphenous neuritis (burning pain wrapping from side of knee to below kneecap), but what you really need is a thorough evaluation by a knee/sports med expert who can actually examine your knee, determine if further testing (MRI, etc) is needed. Hope that helps. Good luck
