In brief: I do, complex
Knee reconstructions are very complex and should be done by an experienced surgeon familiar with the latest techniques.
When done correctly and with a well-directed and compliant patient, the results can be very satisfactory. The patient should be well-prepared as it is a very difficult recovery. The pain, although significant at times, can be controlled with cutting edge techniques.
