    total knee replacement -- references for surgeons in WA

    Left knee TKR is inevitable due to advanced patellofemoral arthritis and OA throughout knee, likely in part the legacy of smashing my knee cap on a rock during a traverse of the Pickets in 1993.

    Got a bead on two surgeons with good records and lots of experience, looking for a third opinion, preferably near Seattle area or in central WA.

    Thanks

    Lawrence Holland, works for OPA at Swedish in Seattle. He understands athletes needs - my buddy had a TKR in March and was skiing hard by December....

    Lawrence Holland or Jim Crutcher are excellent, high-volume surgeons. I have worked with them both many times and I would happily have them operate on me should I need it. Fwiw, here's the Propublica analysis of surgical complications in Washington for TKR by surgeon: https://projects.propublica.org/surg...spitals/500027
