Complications after knock knee surgery.
Hello, My who is 50 years old have knock knees. He have knock knees since childhood but the gap between both legs was not much as he is getting older the between his legs is getting wider which is causing him pain. Pain isn’t that chronic but he gets pain every time her stands or walks for a long time. Doctors suggested we should consider taking surgery but we are confused because in most cases knee surgery is not successful so we want to consider everything before taking any decision. Can anyone tell what all complications can arise after taking knock-knee surgery? Name some common ones so that we could make a decision. Thanks!
@eugene Hello, as with any surgery, complications can happen. The most common complications are the are of surgery can get infected. If the infection does not respond to antibiotics, another surgery or series of surgeries may be required. The peroneal nerve or blood vessels that run down the back of the leg can be damaged during surgery, and anesthesia poses the risk of strokes, heart attacks, pneumonia, and blood clots. Blood clots and infections are the most common complication of knee osteotomy or knee replacement.
