My husband is 39, and Diabetic,he was involved in a motorcycle wreck back in July 2010- He severly fractured his left Tibial plateau, t is completely shattered... After trying bone stimulation and lots of waiting time from his doctor,nothing has improved,, as of this day he saw a new doctor, said the knee was too complex to try to fix- said it was crumbled, he offered us options as for knee fusion, or amputation- said knee replacement would take multiple surgeries and no gaurantee...I would like to know what would be the best option for him as for his options an why.. I am trying to understand what the process an length of time would be.
