Knee Replacement Failure - Need total reconstruction

@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.

May I ask how the conformis knee differs from the styker prosthesis ?

What is the name of your surgeon at B+W hospital that uses the conformis?
