Total Knee Replacement
Posted in the Knee Replacement Forum
#1 Mar 19, 2011
I've been reading the different posts on the BioMet Total Knee System as I am scheduled for surgery on May 2nd, 2011. I'm 47, a former pro athlete and currently coach both youth and high school football which makes me a very active person. My O.S. is very confident in the Biomet total knee and has been a board certified joint replacement O.S. for 40 years. I am putting my faith and right knee in his hands as he's been my O.S. for the past 17 years. Just looking for additional comments as I know that everyone is different as is every surgery, trust me, I've had 8 knee surgeries and anything has got to be better than the pain I have been enduring for the past 5 years with my bone-on-bone knee joint.
