Doctor in the Netherlands?
« on: October 20, 2009, 07:34:12 PM »
Hey Everyone!

I am studying a year abroad in Utrecht, the Netherlands and was wondering if anyone had any advice on knee docs? My OS in the States (Dr. Angelo Colosimo) is checking with his contacts for a Doc for me but I didn't know if anyone had experience (good/bad) with any knee docs here?  I'm currently in the pain mangement too young for TKR (I'm 24) nothing can currently be done for me stage of my knee problems. I take 200 mg Celebrex as needed (Sometimes 2x a day), Use Lidocaine patches at night, Voltaren gel during the day, and I elevate my knee when sleeping. Some days are good some days suck....I'm sure you all have that same experience.

Thanks!!
