Title: Considering Emsley-Trillat Procedure - looking for post-op recovery experiences
Post by: megk on May 25, 2021, 11:05:05 AM
Hi All,

I've some issues with recurrent subluxation, locking, and focal cartilage loss (bone-on-bone femoral to patella surface).

I've seen a surgeon who has recommended consideration of an Emsley-Trillat procedure.

I'm looking to hear recovery stories from those who have gone through this procedure.

How did you find the first:
- week
- fortnight
- month
- 3 months

What is your function now?
- What sport can you do?
- Can you manage a jog?

Hi Meg,

Late reply, but I think the Emsley-Trillat procedure is very unusual these days. Hence, I think you should get a second opinion whether this is the best surgery for you.

Recovery-wise I guess it is about the same as any TTT/TTO/AMZ Fulkerson (search in the forum or elsewhere online for recovery stories). 

Good luck, and please keep us updated on how things progress!
