Hi there!

Yes, low bone density is a relative contraindication for knee replacement since this would hamper optimal results and recovery.
Hope the information is helpful.

Take care!

Thank you, Dr, Kaul.

Fortunately, I was able to have A Synvisc-One injection which has relieved my pain.

Thanks again.
