FOREST T. HEIS, MD

FOREST T. HEIS, MD"I've been doing subchondroplasty with much success in relieving patients' pain," says Dr. Forest T. Heis. "The bottom line is that if you are not in pain, then there is no need for further surgery, such as a knee replacement."

"Someone 65 years old could expect a knee replacement to last 25 to 30 years, or essentially the rest of that person's life," Dr. Heis says. "So, for every year you can delay a knee replacement, it pays dividends and translates into more than a year on the other side of the procedure before the replaced knee wears out. As a result, I do a lot of things to try to prevent or delay knee replacements in patients in their 40s and 50s, and subchondroplasty is a terrific option for that."
