    • My son is 14 and has it on both knees and also has medial patella ligament that needs tightening on his right knee due to having EDS and that was his main complaint of pain from coming his right knee coming out of joint. He had the 2 circles on his xrays on his patellas and until we saw the orthopedist no one could tell us what they were. His orthopedist wants to do surgery but he does not want to have surgery and I am researching to see if that is really what is needed.

  1. My 8-year-old daughter was just diagnosed with OCD in her right knee. Starting 6 weeks of crutches, 3 months no sports, and will take it from there.

  2. My 12 yr old son was told today that he defiantly has OCD in his left knee and most likely in the right knee also. His left was locking up during the summer and his right one has pain and swelling in it now. Mri will be next week to see how back and what to do next. I am glad to see that chop has someone that knows a lot about OCD of the knees.

  4. My 11 years old son has osteochondritis dissecans in his left knee . He is going to complete 6 months of conservative treatment. He is pain free , and normal walking, however can not go up or down stairs. I’m having to take him to school every day and going up to him on the back, because there is no elevator at school. We are from Brazil and we had much difficulty to determinated the treatment because each doctor speaks a different thing . Some say it will have to operate because his injury is great ( 2,10×2,80×0,8 ) and others says it will be good and do not need to operate. This uncertainty and lack of clarity of medical leave us very apprehensive and unsure what to do. We hope that he will just good and return to normal activities . If someone have cases of children who were cured , please send us the information (time of treatmente , size, injury, kind treatment … ) [email protected]
