Specializes in Orthopedic Surgery

A total knee replacement should be reserved for improving pain relief when the joint is worn out. It can improve stability. If you have had failed many ACL reconstructions and you are bone-on-bone a consideration of bracing, osteotomy, partial knee replacement, total knee replacement and knee arthrodesis(fusion) would be considered in a patient as young as you are.
