Subchondroplasty for a hard core skier
« on: November 10, 2017, 08:48:48 AM »
Hi:
I have a very bad bone bruising   in my right knee (diagnosed by Ortho via MRI), limited to my medial compartment. Cartledge  is very thin (diagnosed via MRI and scoping last year). I have significant pain on activities like waling more than 1-2 blocks, stairs etc. I was a long term runner.  I'm also a very serious skier.

I need a partial knee -- I know that. Orthopod offered a Subchondroplasty as a stop gap for this winter, so i can ski (I have a 10 year old, we ski 25-35 days each winter). I know i could 'just take it easy' -- but that's not what I'm asking about.

Question is: Does anyone with experience with Subchondroplasty, as a patient or Dr think if i get it done next week, that i will be able to ski hard by late January (75 days). I'm in shape and good to go otherwise.

Thank you in advance for your input and ideas!!!
