I hope that someone will have some advice for me. I contacted Stablyx to see if there was a surgeon near me that handled their pyrocarbon implants. The response was a surgeon right here and little old Laramie Wyoming. I saw the same guy 2 years ago for the same condition. On our very first visit he wanted to set a date for surgery. If I hadn't already had a date set for a total knee replacement I probably would have accommodated. It is convenient to have a surgeon here locally but he doesn't do just wrist and thumbs. He also does knee Replacements and other surgeries. One of my questions is should I hold out and only have the surgery done by somebody that does the implants exclusively? How do I find out how much experience this guy actually has with implants? Will it be proper for me to just come right out and ask him? Is there any other way to find out?
