Fulkersons Osteotomy Knee Surgery

"Fulkersons Osteotomy Knee Surgery", or anterior mobilization of the tibial tubercle knee surgery, there are many other names for this. I just had this done on my left knee on Thursday 8/30. I am a 32 year old female with a 20 year history of "knee problems". I have had 3 surgeries on my right and now 2 on my left. I had a lateral release on May 8th that just didn't "work", as I dislocated 2x since that date. Thus the more aggressive surgery.

Anyone out there with advice??

The Calf Skin provides the calf with constant compression for both calf and shin area. Excellent in helping reduce shin splints, Bio Skin's light weight and low profile make it very easy to wear.
