Knee replacement with Ehlers Danlos

Posted by mochapup @mochapup, May 9 8:03pm

Hi-I have hEDS as well as bone-on-bone
kneecap osteoarthritis that causes me pain walking, especially hills and stairs. The two surgeons I have seen advise avoiding surgery until “it’s unbearable “
because my joint instability could
cause post-op dislocations and because of my youngish age (51). Have had injections and am doing PT but want to
find out about surgeons who specialize in hypermobile patients. Also, what other resources do you recommend?
