I am posing this so as to maybe help someone.
As some of you know, Elvis (my BLm) had CCL surgery last summer.
The process was the "swivel~lock" procedure.
Dr. Nick Schuett (Dr. Jeff's son) performed the procedure.
It was a full 6" incision.
That knee is as solid as could be, and he was running pretty well at about 10 weeks.
It was a huge success by all accounts.
Unfortunately, the other knee went this last winter.
It is a partial tear.
Dr. Nick is going to go in, clean up the tear and install the swivel~lock on this knee as well.
However, this will be done arthroscopically!
A 1/4" incision with minimal down time.
A 2 to 3 week healing period with the water therapy (under water treadmill).
Then another 2 to 3 week therapy period rebuilding the atrophied muscles.
Our expectation is to be running full speed in 8 to 10 weeks!
If this happens according to plan, this is a alternative process to be considered.
Let me know if there is interest, I will keep you posted, and if not that's OK too!
