Re: Fulkersons Osteotomy Knee Surgery

Hi there, I don't know much about it but my doctor has recommended I have it, from what I do know its a massive op, don't they break your leg? I have read your comments and I can totally empathise I could be reading my own notes as you have exactly the same history as me. The only thing is though I have one leg shorter than the other... so not sure that even if I do have it, its the best thing for the longer term, my doc refuses to do another medial reefing as the first didn't work. but i want to try another to see if the second one works ans if it doesn't this will be my last resort.. my leg practically gives in every step i take, so i need some advice and your the first person i have found that has had it, can we keep in touch? it would be good to see how your going... thanks tracey

The SiliposŪ Soft Sock is a two-layer sock carefully designed with a proprietary gel pad molded in between the two fabric layers at the sole to absorb and reduce friction, abrasion, shear forces, and moisture away from the foot.
