Wow @killerbees – That is an amazing story about your mom's orthopedic journey and you are the hero in the story! She's lucky to have had your support. I agree with JK that I've never heard of anyone breaking a titanium rod! From your post, it sounds as if you moved to SC to be with your mom so I'm guessing you use Mayo JAX. My orthopedic surgeon is there – Dr. Ortiguera. If you are going there for a TKR, I know you'd be very pleased with him. Not sure about stem cell replacement. Have you found a doctor for that?
