Thanks in advance for any help...this is a great site!

I did a lot of research and concluded it is smarter to pick the best surgeon, and let him or her choose the hardware that best suits you. My surgeon does over 300 TKRs a year and uses Stryker knees. He gave my the Triathlon, also called the GeHey Ard knee. I am small. Very active. Needed a knee that will take it!

Oops that should be, Get Around knee.
