Difficulty standing up from a squatting position? Age or deconditioning?

Both: Unfortunately, one of earliest muscle groups to lose control of is the quads and hip flexors. These are the muscles needed to stand from a squatting condition.

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

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
