Son diagnosed with Osteonecrosis of the knee : LUSENET : About Joints : One Thread

My son is 18 1/2 years old, and he has had 3 Arthroscopic surgeries in the last 2years. He has been in constant pain for the last 3 years. He was recently diagnosed with Osteonecrosis of his right Medial and Lateral femoral condyle. His MRI showed the cysts on his femor and the Dr says they are starting to collapse. His doctor suggests the Arthrex large osteograft transplant system. He has only proformed 2 of these surgeries and with good success so far. Does anyone have any suggestions on where I can find out more information on this procedure? Thank you for any replies, Cherlene
