Recommended Posts

Any new news or break through s ? Dr Mark, you watching this area? My wifes knees are worn out & she is in pain.(from teaching aerobics & running much, in her younger years) She's 53 now(you didn't hear it from me) & says knee replacement is too early & now her hips are starting to bother her from the way she walks, from knee pain over the years. Dr. Mark your opinions please.

That cartlage stuff is a non starter in people over 50

I have hundreds of active people in their 50s with sucessful total knee replacments. A total knee can give an adult a new lease on life, as opposed to a biyearly "minimally invasive" procedure.

I dont mean to hijack but Dr. Mark is there anything coming out regarding TKR's that will still allow us riders and skiers to keep playing? Anything being developed etc.

You can ski and ride off road with a prosthesis. YOu just have to be smart about and act your age, not like a teenager.
