I started 14 yrs ago with problems from one dr who said there wasnt a cure 2 arthroscopies later I left found another dr who did an elevated osteotomy, and all other treatments have been through him. I have osteoarthritis of the knee cap. Very hard to treat, some things help but no cures. I saught a second opinion in Boston Ma. and they said I was not a candidate for kbee replacement, only what I have been doing now as stated above.
