Knee Manipulation Under Anesthesia

If lack of bending is a problem after knee surgery most orthopedic surgeons will recommend a Manipulation Under Anesthesia. The procedure takes approximately 10 minutes and is performed in a hospital or surgical center. General anesthesia is administered. An orthopedic surgeon then bends and flexes the knee to tear through scar tissue that has formed in the knee.

Jeanie Skips the Manipulation Under Anesthesia

PARKERSBURG, West Virginia — After all the rehab at home and in the clinic the last thing Jeanie wanted was to start all over again. A Manipulation Under Anesthesia is considered, by many, to be a failed knee recovery. This has little to do with the patient’s effort in most cases. In fact there is a somewhat long list of factors that suggest that a person might have a tougher time of it when it comes to recovery.

Whatever the reason, Jeanie was behind at week six and in need of some extra help. Otherwise her surgeon was going to go forward with the MUA. She found X10 online, made the call, has never looked back. Two weeks and done. Two weeks and safe. Only two weeks and on to the business of enjoying the lovely late summer and early fall in West Virginia.
