HELP ME !I just need an opinion!!!

I am a 55 yr old female. I have had apprx 17 surg. procedures btwn both knees. My right one has been replaced twice, with my first one being replaced after just 9 months. It kept dislocating. I have been told NOT to let anyone do anything with my left. My Ortho guy says it is time to replace the left one. I HAVE HAD MY KNEECAPS REMOVED in the mid-late '70s. Has the medical devices made a drastic chang? I am now, and have been, bone-on-bone. I am not asking for you to do the surgery, I'm asking if you were in this situation would you have it done? Recommend your daughter/son/spouse to have it done? I currently do not have an Orthopaedic Doctor. I have an appointment with a Dr. Waters at the end of November. It has taken 8 monthes to get it. Any thoughts? I am getting Medicare, if that makes any difference. Thank You (or whomever is reading this) Sue Ellen Stewart Indianapolis, Indiana 317-681-4523

Desperate patient

Broke a Femur bone on Monday due to a fall. After careful review, we chose him for immediate surgery. His schedule was completely booked yet, he managed to operate on me less than a day. Excellent results, bedside manner, follow up visits. Highly recommend him. Good luck with yours.

I just had a partial knee replacement at UCLA with Dr. Bengs as my surgeon. My surgery went perfectly with no complications. UCLA is the best hospital I have had surgery at. I would highly recommend both Dr. Bengs and UCLA!
