Likely no effect: Several forms of commercially-produced liquid collagen are found in beauty products and nutritional supplements and less often as a bodybuilding supplement that promotes muscle growth and joint support. No validated scientific evidence that it will have any beneficial (or negative) effects(s) on your condition or recovery from orthopedic surgery. You should discuss this with your surgeon as well.
