I'm sitting here watching the something or other bowl and saw an ad for "getaroundknee.com", brand name Stryker. Something about a round motion instead of oval. I looked up their doctor list and none of them are familiar to me and there weren't that many in the LA area, which got me wondering.
Has anybody heard of these things? The ads are quite amusing.
Has anybody ever gone to a doctor with a particular appliance in mind?
Obviously medical advertising (specifically Big Pharma) is nothing new and is intended to get the patient requesting particular care from his doctor.
Neil, if you see this - did your doctor give you any options on what kind of knee to install?
