Re: Fulkersons Osteotomy Knee Surgery

Ive had this done just over two years now....Im 23 now... i still get discloacations but no where near as much as i used to. I have also had a rod put through my tibia and my legs realigned.... I know you get fed up...... but as your body settles down it does get better. a good fitness and muscle building routine targeting the muscles around your knees helps alot too. wall squats are great. they hurt and it is very hard at first but thats y you use the wall nto help support yourself.... chin up.... there is hope... there is definatley no miracle cure... but slow and steady wins the race. A good personal trainer should be able to help you and will be able to tell what your limits are.... i highly reccommend the gym and a positive attitude.

Pro-Tec Athletics' J-Lat Knee Support helps guide the patella back into proper alignment with gentle pressure from the lateral to medial direction. Compression surrounding the patella will help keep it in the patella-femoral groove.
