Knee surgery is off … for now

Filed under: Knee Surgery — Dale @ 10:44 am

At my pre-op checkup x-rays showed a substantial deterioration of my right knee joint since the last examination nearly a year ago. After considerable debate, we decided the arthritis in my knee is too far advanced for allograft OATS surgery.

The inside portion of my knee compartment is now nearly closed and I have a lot of arthritic growth in the knee joint and under the kneecap. After studying the x-rays and my knee flexion, Dr. King believes the allograft OATS procedure would only alleviate some of the pain, and that I would be dissatisfied with the results and would be back in an operating room within two years for a knee replacement. Also, there was the question of the donor tissue — is it appropriate to use the tissue for a marginal surgery, when there are more suitable candidates waiting for it?

So we decided to cancel my surgery and turn the tissue back to the donor bank, to be used by someone else.

Now I will look for an alternative surgery.
