I have a 16 year old daughter who has been diagnosed with the possibly of Keinbocks disease. Her soccer injury was three years ago, she did not want me to do anything at the time and said that she would keep the wrist stapped during games. Since then she has been under a personal trainer and she has pain when doing pushups, she cannot do shin ups. and she has now decided whe wants to be a physiotherapist. The disease has only just been diagnosed, could you please tell me what affect this could have on her chosen profession. Is surgery a 100% guarantee that there will not be any sort of recurrence of osteonecrosis to the site. Can she have one of my Lunate bones to replace her diseased one??? Thank you for your time in answering my questions. Warmest regards RJ
