How do you go about adding a name to the OS list?

I think names are only added my Knee Guru and only after she has thoroughly investigated and researched them, she even visits them I think. You could maybe suggest someone to her and see how you go. you best bet is to contact knee guru direct either with a post or IM her.
I got my latest knee OS from her list of big names here in Australia (Dr. Mervyn Cross ;D)

Good Luck
