Comments and questions

Hello! We are looking for a clinic for my father in law to perform a quadricep sparing knee replacement in Europe. We were recently in Seattle Washington, and there are a few doctors in the US that perform this minimally invasive approach to knee replacement. However, due to the US being far in distance to our home (Kuwait) we are looking at the option to perform this surgery in Europe. Can you please let me know whether or not your clinic performs this type of approach. If so, we will continue to do our research regarding your clinic and reach out to you formally for more detail and information. Thank you!

Is it possible?

My doctor says I need a total shoulder replacement since there is no cartilage left. I heard that in Europe there is an alternative-replacing cartilage with a synthetic pad of some sort. Can you tell me if this is the case? Thank you
