Have had quite a few arthroscopy's on my knees, with varying results. Am now looking for a more aggressive orthopedic surgeon in mlb. Am fed up with small repairs, just want the right one replaced with a metal one. Current guy is too conservative for me, have been treated by him for 20yrs, had enough, cant stand for long, straighten leg in bed, or sit and watch a movie without pain and lockups. I am in top medical/hospital etc, and have had the last few arthro's done at vimy house, total cost almost zero after fund pays up. Anyone know how to find such a surgeon? Dont fancy just calling em up and booking in for a consult in 6months time, just to find out he dont want to do nothing. If this is classed as elective surgery, why cant I elect to have it done? Have investigated the crap out of operation, know what to expect in terms of future mobility, recovery etc.
