good morning all,
been reading a bunch on here since June when i had my first knee surgery. at that time i had a large loose body taken out along with a fix to my meniscus. was doing well for about two month post surgery then started having issues again, locking, catching , clicking, giving out, etc. so i followed up with my Dr and went for a follow up MRI. had that done in OCT finally was able to see home in NOV and he said i will need OATS surgery. he does not handle many OATS surgeries so he referred me to 2 other Drs. unfortunately neither took my insurance but i was able to find a Dr that did. i saw him yesterday and he is recommending a MEGA OATS procedure. both the fem and the tib are bone on bone known as a kissing lesion.

has anyone ever had this done and can offer some tips. any information will be helpful
