[/b]Allyd[/b] - Sounds like a good idea. I just don't want to feel like I'm forcing him into something he doesn't want to do. Even though he is a professional and should know better than to be swayed by a patient to do what they want them to do, I just want to make sure I don't pressure him into it... although, that's obviously something I would discuss with him.
I definately agree that if the tibia can be moved medially it can be moved laterally as well, so I guess it's just an experience thing. Although, to be honest, having a surgeon preform a surgery for the first time on me doesn't really intimidate me. In my logic I would feel that whoever is doing it would be sure to take extra care and pay special attention and documentation of what they're doing. So if for some reason something would go wrong, it's easy to re-trace the steps. However, that's just my opinion on the matter. I realize it may sound farfetched, but hey, I'd want somebody to give me a chance if I was willing to try something new. I'll look into it.
I found a medical journal entry that talked about a 17 year old girl who had the exact same problem I have, and they fixed the ligaments with arthroscopic surgery, so I'm sure that'll be something to talk to my doctor about too... actually, that article may have been referred to me from this website, so if it was I apologize for the repetition and my terrible memory.
