Can anyone recommend some surgeons that have experience and a good rep
for Patellofemoral arthroplasty in the US? (Preferably the east coast?)

Dave33 has posted about his PFJR and is in N America, although could be Canada rather than the States. You can search for his posts by user name

Otherwise, here’s the KG Patella surgeons list

Dr Grelsamer is in NY and a contributor to the forum.
His CV cites a special interest in replacements

Thanks, Vickster!  I went to see Dr. Gomoll at HSS and a telehealth visit with Dr. Jess Lonner, I got 2 very different opinions 🤔

Armstrong, great that you got some opinions! Could you, in a nutshell, share how the opinions differed (you don't need to mention which doc said what)?
RK sharp pain while running, diagnosis chondromalacia patellae 6/09
RK arthroscopic chondroplasty 9/09
RK rehab, recovery, 90% normal, started running again -> back to square one 5/15
RK diagnosis patellofemoral arthritis + LK diagnosis chondromalacia patellae 8/15 -> conservative treatment
