Dwyane Wade regrets having surgery back in 2002 while at Marquette to remove the meniscus from his left knee. Wade believes it has led to ongoing knee problems.

Wade wishes he would have taken a more long-term approach to the situation.

"My knee problems and the things I've dealt with started from that," Wade said . "That was [11] 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 it. At that time it was get me back on the basketball court and do what is best."

Over the summer Wade had OssaTron shockwave therapy on his knees to treat tendinitis.
