Knock Knee?
« on: November 27, 2006, 05:57:47 PM »
Hi guys.
I am nearly 1 year Post-op MCL advancement.The metalwork was removed 6 weeks ago due to the pain.
I had an ACLR 12 years ago and 2 arthroscopies.I have just returned from seeing my OS and hes not very happy with my progress,and he says
the MCL is still to loose.
What he did next started to worry me.He started comparing my knees from different angles as i was standing,and then told me that i could have
'Knock knee'.He explained a procedure where they breack the bone and move it over.My time was then up and he wants to see me in 6 weeks.
Does anyone know anything about this?

Regards Munchie

Hello Munchie,

I had a femoral osteotomy for a severe knock knee deformity. I would try to get more specific information on what the Doctor wants to do. Ask about the degree of angle and look at the x-rays with him.
