Knee Replacement Surgery

This week I'm finally having it done. Knee arthroplasty. Total knee replacement. Last June I had my knee scoped here's the pictures of that.

Since then I have been under the care of Dr. Kalo at Orthopedic Consultants in Sioux Falls. We've tried many things as a treatment for the pain.  But to no avail.  Finally we decided to go ahead with this procedure this summer.  I am sure the winter would have been unbearable the way things have been for the last several months.

Here's a YouTube animation of knee replacement. It makes me rather squeamish even though it's not a real surgery.

Very enlightening. Especially the one by the doctor who demonstrates how the surgeries are done.
