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.

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

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
