Find an OS that can tell you what is causing the chondromalacia then determine a plan from that.  You may benefit from surgery, but it must be the right one to correct the actual problem.
'83 lt knee scope
'88 lt knee LR
'89 rt knee LR (6 mos. after left)
'05 rt knee scope (clean up)
7/5/07 - scope, LR left, right clean
3/19/08 - LR failed, Supartz failed
