I have a question about TKR: my twin sister has severe osteopenia and quite a lot of osteoporosis. She has severe scoliosis, bow legs and one knee that is bone on bone. Can one still have a TKR with these issues? She says she is not in any pain but walks with a severe limp. Her friends (and husband makes fun of her) are commenting. She is in denial. She is going to PT to try and strengthen her muscles and it was suggested she wear a brace on the bad knee. Will a TKR work in this situation?
