I thought the same thing — if the cartilage isn’t going to come back and the bone spur won’t go away, just want it fixed. I was curious if my insurance is requiring a non-invasive approach first. (It happened with my knee as well the insurance company required PT first — which didn’t work and had it replaced a year later.) I told the surgeon that cortisone didn’t work on my knee prior to replacement. This surgeon is actually very experienced and have a follow-up in 3 months, but he did say if the cortisone shot doesn’t work to call him before the three months. Just want it over and done with, but want to use this surgeon because of his reputation. Thank you for your insight.
