Anyone out there care to share their experiences with osteotomy and/or osteochondral allografts?

lots of people already have.  Go down to the arthritis section of the board.  There is a board called "changing forces through the joint" for the osteotomies, TTTs, etc.  And once on "cartilage plug transfer" for the allografts.  Lots of people have had both.  I think there are also a few threads in the post-op section.

Thank you SO much!  I guess I didn't look before I leapt!!  ...that's not how I injured my knee though...  ;D  Anyway, I never would've thought to check out the arthritis section.  Cheers  8)

No problem - you're not the first who didn't think of the arthritis section.

As far as I can tell, they're down there because the most basic defintition of arthritis is damage to/wearing away of the articular cartilage.  ANd if you didn't have that, you wouldn't need any of these procedures.  Hope you found what you were looking for.
