Unstable knee: In your case,from your history(unstable knee,probably internal derangement), the best person would be a orthopod.However if you are on a medical aid,MOST schemes require you to see a GP to be assessed, get a referral letter as well as an authorisation number from your scheme.If a private patient,you could see the orthopaedic dr directly.
