Can you clarify? I wasn't aware that anyone did cut quads with this surgery.
I had bilateral TKR in 2002, total revision of left in 2012, and partial revision of right in 2013
No one ever mentioned cutting or not cutting quads
Each time, I had OP PT for several weeks afterward.
Sorry Jaborla, I am the wrong person to ask. do know the quads were cut at times. Probably Slooper John can help you.
I actually can't answer that one definitively. My guess is that some surgeons who are more experienced can refrain from "cutting" the quads. That maybe a reason why I never had any numbness.
I remember you well. You, KnitterBetty, Joy, Etc. helped me through my journey in 2007. Thank you! I too am curious as to what the new advances are. All of us see a revision in our near future. Catherine, I'll keep you in my prayers.
