Orthopedist: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 8 months ago

how old are you?

how did your doctors find these bone infarcts?

did they see it on MRI scan

this can also be called osteonecrosis of the bone or death of the bone

hyperbaric oxygen chamber therapy can help some patients with osteonecrosis death of the bone

you may also have a total knee replacement.

are you able to have knee surgery?

yes I know it is bone death
never heard of hyperbaric oxygen therapy
yes I can have a knee replacement
what about core decompression?
Orthopedist: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 8 months ago

hyperbaric oxygen chamber therapy has you go into a pressurized chamber breathing pure oxygen to try to get more blood flow and oxygen into the area of dead bone.

it works in some patients

if that doesn't work, you may need surgery to cut out the bone which is dead and put in a new knee.

core decompression is usually done in the hip for necrosis in the femoral bone.

it may not be able to be done in the knee.

have you seen an orthopedic surgeon about this necrosis yet?

I have seen 1 who gave me a cortozone shot and said basically nothing about the bone infracts- I have an apt bone with a surgeon.
Orthopedist: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 8 months ago

that is good you are to see a orthopedic surgeon

talk about options for the hyperbaric oxygen chamber therapy

see if you need a total knee replacement surgery
