Hi

I am Kim and it has been many years since I have posted. I had a massive knee injury resulting in significant arrhtrofibrosis in 1999 while I was living in Atlanta. My ortho put my knee back together in Atlanta (with guidance from Dr. Lindenfeld in Ohio) and then sent me there for treatment. I went from 15 degrees flexion to almost being able to touch my heal to my butt. It took a year but I got there. I had to give up tennis but have continued to swim and now do synchronized swimming (masters) and go to the gym 2 times a week. I relocated to Lancaster, PA 7 years ago and slowly my knee is failing me and ins uncomfortable everyday. I received a steroid injection one week ago which has only help minimally. I am wondering if there are any TKA orthos with arthrofibrosis training in PA. I have seen two so far (one at Penn State Hershey and one in Lancaster) neither has the experience and I will not let them do the surgery. I can go back to Ohio (my insurance allows it) but I am hoping a specialist is here in the Philly area. Your help is much appreciated. And if you have any questions about my previous surgery ask away! My old profile name from the early 2000s was kdhfrank....
