  • Frusturation with knees
    I am wondering if anyone can offer advice. I am a 37 year old female, who has had knee pain since my teens. I have had knee surgery on both my knees. The doctors seem to agree that I have arthritis, and I should just deal with it. Well I have been 'dealing' with pain and not being able to participate in general fun activities such as dancing, climbing stairs, long distance walking etc. I have been going to physical therapy on and off for the past 4 years. I get better, start to live life and then end up back where I started. I have been hearing about cartilage replacement. Has anyone heard of this? Does anyone know of any good doctors in the Chicago area? I just recently moved here from Wisconsin. I am tired of hearing that I am too young for a knee replacement and to deal with it. I want to be able to live the life style of a 30+ person now, not in 15 years when I am eligible for a knee replacement.

    Dear 37-year old female,

    There are plenty of people that suffer from this early-onset form of arthritis. It definitely is unpleasant and it limits what you can do, but that doesn't mean you should stop doing activity altogether.

    Check out the recumbent bike - a bicycle made for people like you that need to take pressure off their knees. It's both stationary (in the gym) and for use on the road, and you can have fun cycling around town and getting exercise that way.

    The problem with cartilage replacemnt is that it won't resurface the joint - just patch holes. It's kind of a Spackle for your joints, rather than a brand new surface.

    Visit Yelp to find good doctors in Chicago. Good luck!
