If you have had TKR, what device was used and how is the wear factor working?
I have a good friend who's had a partial and is skiing like you wouldn't believe.
He's dealt with severe knee pain for several years and tried all sorts of alternate ideas in an attempt to avoid the drastic measure of (partial) replacement. His problem involved bone-on-bone on the medial compartment of that knee, which as I understand it made him an ideal candidate for a partial replacement. He's in his upper fifties, has skied at a very high level for 40 or more years, and is extraordinarily fit.
He's thrilled with the result of his partial.
I'm here to ay that Bob Peters and his two new knees are skiing like you would't believe. Mind happily blown. Seriously.
Thanks, spin. I really am very pleased so far.
I'm a lucky guy.
A friend of mine had a very successful TKR and is skiing happily now. He had his surgery from the most acclaimed orthopedic surgeon long island and is a lucky guy to have got such an expert doctor. Be very careful on the doctor you choose for your surgery as he must be specialized in the field and must have had a number of successful TKR surgeries in his record. The recovery and rehabilitation process plays a crucial role in helping you get back on your feet and resume an active lifestyle. It can help you heal from surgery faster and greatly improve your chances for long-term success. Post-knee replacement recovery and rehab period usually lasts about 12 weeks.
