He is status post (s/l..hers-a-mit-e-bro-sis)His knee has intermittent pain. His MRI demonstrates medial meniscus tear and osteoarthritis including chondromalacia of his patella. I obtained a weightbearing view of his knee today. The x-ray shows still good preservation of the medial joint space. He does not need a total knee at this point. I think he is a candidate for arthroscopy. He feels that he can tolerate this and it is not frequent enough that he is ready to do any type of surgery. At this point we can see him back as needed.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!! (nm)
