  • Dear doctor,
    I am a financial journalist based in Pakistan. My wife (52) has been suffering from knee pain starting in one knee which has not progressed over 10 years to ostoarthritis. I am very much impressed by your observation of delaying surgery, while all bone specialists here consider no other alternative but surgery, which as you have rightly said, we have observed more often goes wrong. And are trying to avoid. But her pain is severe. Please doctor could you help and advise.

    Sincerely,
    Dilawar Hussain
