i am not sure what kind of system they used on my knee, I had two knee replacements plus a forced loosening of the artificial knee, where they give you some local anesthesia and force the knee to move. The surgeries were all done in Las Vegas, and the doctor who performed them won't take my calls because I guess he considers me a failed patient. I need to know how I can get that info out of the doctor's office. As one of my doctor's warned me, this surgery might not take care of your pain, and he was right.
