From the conversation with my parents, what I figured, the doctor is going to use oxinium Knee replacement implant (which is from Smith and nephew). From another source, I was suggested to use Johnson and Johnson knee implant. Which one is best and what should I know before going for knee replacement implant? What could be the implant cost per knee implant (for one leg)? Any pros and cons?

Avatar m tn Hi, I just received the MRI results for my right knee. It shows to have: "Myxoid degeneration of medial meniscus posterior horn with knee joint effusion and suspected partial tear of the anterior cruciate ligament for which clinical correlation is adviced". I get only right knee MRI due to its cost, but I'm suffering of similar pain on both knees. What does this mean? Is there any treatment I can do at home to relief the pain? Thanks!
182884 tn?1259312906 Can you tell me a little bit about what your surgery was like to repair your knee? WAs it done in a surgery outpatient center or in the hospital? How long did the surgery take? WAs the sugery painful, and did you have a brace or something on your knee afterwards? Did you have a block or generarl anestthsia? Also did the dr. do some sort of Arthoscope in your knee to see what it looked like before the surgery and what was that like?
1393879 tn?1288725449 You need to see a physician. You need an MRI and a specialist to look at the knee. The problem may be minor or major. We don't know from an internet post. If you were involved in a school sponsored activity the school foots the medical bill, and the cost of surgery, if required. Don't pass go. Don't collect two hundred dollars. It is mandatory that you see a physician.

Avatar f tn Hello, I just had my ultrasound done today and it turns out I have a 5cm cyst on left ovary. The doctor talks surgery..I was wondering if anybody knows how much approximately it's gonna cost me out of pocket to have it done? I have insurance, deductibles to meet etc. Thank you for any help!
Avatar f tn There was no pop or immediate/major swelling, but there was pain on the inside of the knee. I had a few episodes of the knee giving out and swelling eventually increased so 2 days after I went to an orthopedic doctor. He confirmed my suspicion that I had an MCL sprain, but said I may have also injured my ACL and meniscus.

Avatar n tn I was wondering if you had any estimate for the cost of your surgery. Af friend snapped his tibia yesterday and had a rod, nail and screw put in last night. He doesn't have insurance and is trying to figure out how far he'll be in the hole. Thanks.
Avatar n tn Often a torn ACL is a degenerating piece of tissue, the breakdown products of which cause inflammation and scarring within and of the joint capsule of the knee. This causes pain and loss of range of motion. Surgery always involves debriding (removing) this unhealthy and useless tissue. Sometimes also, due to the abnormal motion at the knee after the ACL tears, the meniscus (cartilage cushion) in the knee is also damaged. This may also need partial debridement at surgery.
Avatar m tn About 9 years ago, I had major surgery on my left knee for a meniscus tear and knee dislocation. In the past year I've noticed that my left leg locks up all the time when walking, my left ankle has plantars fasciitis and is in constant pain. And now my right leg is also starting to lock up with the kneecap feeling unstable and the ankle is starting to get plantars fasciitis. I believe it has to do with the way I walk due to my CP.
Avatar f tn I was told by my orthopedic Surgeon that I may have a medial meniscus tear but need an MRI to confirm. I was told that the MRI would cost me around $3500. Is there another way of doing this? Why couldn't he just scope me, find the problem and repair it? Other than that, I have to have a costly MRI and surgery which he would scope me anyways. Also, is there something other than cortizone that can be injected into the knee for some quick relief? I had a injection twice, and it did nothing.
645390 tn?1338555377 Having torn ACLs twice in my right knee and then having had surgery to shave the knee because bone was hitting bone I can say a bum knee really hurts. It is up there with one of the worst pains I have experienced. After the surgery 30 years ago my knee has been great. My left knee has needed surgery for 15 years and I just have not been able to afford it but it is nothing like the right knee.
