Does anyone know anything about this procedure? I had it on Aug 10,05 And I am still recovering.  .I also had a bone graph on my knee I do not know if that is why my recovery is taking so long. I am currently walking with a cane steps are getting easier. Any info would be appreciated

  • An obstacle is often a stepping stone.

There are posts about the OATS procedure in the "Arthritis Dept".  You can also find people's personal diaries in the section titled 'Rehab Dept' - 'Post'op Diary' section.

I've read that OATS is a long recovery, hang in there.  Hope you can find help on those boards. 

Good luck.  ~Shade
