This is a 66 year old female with severe, end stage arthritis of bilateral knees. She delayed surgery for over a decade due to fear of the procedure. Subsequently, she developed significant loss of motion due to the formation of extremely large osteophytes (bone spurs). Her preoperative range of motion was only 15 to 90 degrees.
She underwent staged bilateral total knee arthroplasty, spaced two months apart, without issues.
At 3 months from surgery, she is walking unassisted and has a range of motion of 0 to 125 degrees.
