Help building an international database of surgeons who treat arthrofibrosis
This will be used to identify clinicians whose treatments are based on our understanding of fibrosis pathology. Your contribution will be much appreciated and individual responses will not be published. Clinicians are welcome to complete the checklist themselves. Please understand that this international database will take time to build.
If you’re planning surgery you may find it helpful to ask your surgeon this list of questions. The surgical methods used appear to make a difference to risk of fibrosis returning, however, there can never be a guarantee of success. See this summary of recommendations by experienced arthrofibrosis surgeon Dr Singleton.
Please note: This checklist for surgical approaches is not applicable to revision total knee replacements. The IAA encourages surgeons to avoid revision TKRs unless there are clearly identifiable problems with the prosthesis.
