    Thank You for your information. I have arthritic knee with “moderate loss” and had first ACP in 2016 which lasted pretty much without pain for 3.5 yrs. Now 9 of 2020 I started with severe pain and Dr’s xrays showed nearly TOTAL loss in Medial. I was shocked as I thought that the ACP had been doing more than just easing pain. I had NOT been explained to me that the bone and cartilage would continue to deteriorate. Dr at fault for that! Patients should be better informed!
    Now facing Partial or possibly total replacement, but first I had another ACP ($600.! again)
    Here’s hoping I get a little more time to find another OR Surgeon!
