Aloha! You're speaking to Dr. Michael Salkin
It's unclear to me what halfway between the elbows and wall of the body implies. I believe you meant stifles (knees) but I'm not sure where halfway between the knees and body wall would be. Are the bilateral bumps on the medial surface of the leg - the surface facing the body wall?
