Well I know one person that had a hip done by this particular surgeon . My girlfriend has since gone to him for her knee and she has achieved 100° of flexion which isn’t bad . She went to him last February not knowing that I was having such problems .
What I’m looking for now is a doctor to do revisions that is proficient at it I don’t know if you can help me here
Thanks for everything

@mwatts91757 I think that @babette may be helpful in recommending a revision surgeon. I believe that the doctor she went to who recommended him is the same excellent surgeon who did my second TKR and I have been very happy with that. If he’s recommending someone I would trust his opinion. Are you also in the Boston area? I am in southern NH and go to Boston for most of my healthcare, most often MGH, but Brigham and Womens does have a better reputation for orthopedics than they do. I also chose B&W because the doctor I went to is a developer of the Conformis knee and that was the knee I wanted.

It does seem as if some people are helped by the CPM machine, but I do not feel that it was helpful for me.
