Ergonomic chair: There is no single one that is the best. Each person is different. The best thing is to go to a store that has them on display and actually try them out.

Pain management: I have seen it get painful enough that the patients need to go on crutches and use a full leg brace to limit stress on the knees. You are correct that this should be over soon, and that is a good thing.What you may not like is the fact you may sometimes have to stop most physical activity and take anti-inflammatories like ibuprofen to manage the pain.I can't offer anything else. ...Read more

Positional dizziness: Positional dizziness can be a sign that there is some problem with maintaining blood flow to the brain. A thorough discussion of symptoms and medical history will be needed before a physician can begin to give recommendations. Many times, symptoms occur as a medication side effect, dehydration, viral illness, diet change; but there will be clues for a physician to narrow the list. Good luck! ...Read more

How long after Fulkerson osteotomy can I have the screws removed? They are becoming painful when I kneel.

How long after Fulkerson osteotomy can I have the screws removed? They are becoming painful when I kneel.

6-12 months after: This is an excellent question I get asked on a semi-routine basis from my patients. In my practice, we confirm with x-rays that the osteotomy healed. If the x-rays show healing, I prefer to leave the screws in for 12 months after surgery prior to removing them. However, I have removed the screws at 6 months after surgery if there is a compelling reason to do so, such as severe kneeling pain. ...Read more

Dry skin: What you described could be due to dry skin in winter. Try using an emollient or moisturizer liberally at night. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

My knees burn when kneeling on them?

My knees burn when kneeling on them?

Patellar pressure: I agree with dr hadied, but since you feel this when you kneel this suggests pre-patellar bursitis. This is the bursa on top of the kneecap. Sometimes this bursa can swell and even get infected. Burning is a little unusal symptom, usually it is pain. Burning could be due to an effect on the nerves around the knee. Do both knes burn, or just one side. ...Read more
