My wife has had knee dislocation since her childhood. She had knee arthoscopy with lateral release in Aug-2015. The doctor told us that the proceedure was very likely to resolve the issue. However, it has been about 6 months and she cannot bend her knee more than 40 degrees. Now the doctor says he does not know why her knee isn't bending and he is suspecting that her patella tendon has problem that cause knee pain and that is why she cannot bend her knee. Although he confirms that right after the arthoscopy he was able to bend her knee all the way while she was under anesthesia. So he is suggesting that we go with TTT (Tibial Tubercle Transfer surgery) where he could cut the bone and move her patella inwards to help with dislocation & pain. This surgery is invasive and we are scared and looking for second opinon.
So does anyone on this forum knows a very good doctor in bay area who could provide us second opinion and confirm the diagnosis?
Do you feel that her current doctor will mind if he comes to know that we are seeking second opinion?
We will appreciate your responses.
