Biomechanical joint dammage
« on: June 03, 2005, 06:39:01 PM »


    I am taking a shot in the dark here and I hope to god that you can help.
I am 45 years old and I am having problems with my knees.  In 1978 I injured my right knee playing football and had a lateral meniscus removal.  The following is the history of my left Knee:

*         1981 lateral meniscedctomy. 

*         1983 lateral transarthrosdcopic removal of prosterior horn remnant
of the lateral meniscus.

*         1986 tibial medial wedge closer osteotomy.

*         1993 shave of the medial femoral condole and arthroscopic lateral

*         1994 total knee replacement.

*         2005 complex revision of total knee arthroplasty with patellar


I have been told by the Compensation Board that the problems with my left knee have not affected my right knee witch now needs to be replaced. 


Can you advise me of any information that would prove my point or that of the compensation board?

How did you sustain all of the injuries on your left knee?
