    TKR Robotic surgery or customized implants

    Has anyone had experience with customized implants? Built for your knee only, instead of off the shelf implants? The one i have heard about is “conformis.” and in robotic surgery, is the robotic just used to guide placement of the implants, but “off the shelf” implants are still used? how do...

    TKR Questions about spacer replacement

    Today i got the fourth opinion on the continual knee pain from 3 year old tkr. Well apparently, 80 percent of tkr patients like the results, 5 percent have really bad outcomes, and 15 percent are disatisfied. So he concurs with three of the four opinions, that there is nothing surgical that can...

    Hyaluronic Acid Injections

    I had one injection of it along with corticosteroid 5 months ago and relief was tremendous. But cant help but worry about the severe bone on bone arthritis going on, while being deluded with pain relief. It was really good for buying time, though.

    Standard Shoulder Replacement Lots of pain two years after tsr and very disappointed

    Thank you Jamie. I am really boggled about what to take care of first, or next: this exploratory surgery on the right shoulder, or the left knee replacement, or continue try to figure out why the right knee replacement still hurts so much. I ask myself, whats hurts the most? The answer is...

    Standard Shoulder Replacement Lots of pain two years after tsr and very disappointed

    I went back to the surgeon yesterday, with complaint of pain again, following tsr of april, 2017, and an additional 12 weeks of pt this summer. He thinks that I have either a rotator cuff tear, or scar adhesions. He doubts it is a rotator cuff tear because there is such intense, specific...

    TKR Questions about spacer replacement

    I used the word “transplant” in error. Imam talking about joint “replacement.” What i think i am alluding to is a difference between a surgeon specializing in “replacements” and a surgeon specializing in “revisions.”

    TKR Questions about spacer replacement

    Oh i made a mistake using the word transplants. I meant to refer to the surgeons as surgeons who do joint replacements. The original surgeon, who did the total replacement 3 years ago practices in another state. The person who gave me the 2nd opinion lives in my state, different city than where...

    TKR Questions about spacer replacement

    Am i reading between the lines too much? Or Should one give more weight to the opinion of a surgeon who does a lot of revisions; or to the opinion of a surgeon who does a lot of transplants (and is now medical director of the hospital)? Thank you.

    TKR Questions about spacer replacement

    Wish i could say, its manageable. Its more like,miserable. Enjoyment of life and function are compromised. Im wondering who has taken the step and had a spacer replaced and ended up worse off? And one of the local transplant surgeons who could provide another opinion is a DO. Is it better to...

    TKR Questions about spacer replacement

    Conundrum continues! I got a 2nd opinion in august from a well respected surgeon in my state, whose opinion was that the spacer in my 3 year old knee transplant is too small, and thst is why im having problems. Upon the advice of the physician who referred me to the original transplant surgeon...
