Although we feel the Dr. Knuth takes the time to explain my son's Hip disease we feel he is ignoring my son's extreme pain. Dr. Knuth has went against two other orthopedic surgeons in their recommendation to keep all pressure off the one leg affected with my son's Legg Calves Perthes. Ever since he has allowed my son to put pressure on the leg and allowed bike riding and so forth, my son has been in extreme pain, has collapsed in pain, has started knee pain that is indescribable at times and his gait and limp has worsened. Upon getting the official approval to have x-rays on my son's knee because of his extreme pain, Dr. Knuth refused to do the x-ray and barely took the time to look at the knee. Dr. Knuth spent more time trying to convince us that our son does not need surgery than listening and finding out what the cause of my son's knee pain is from and how to go about finding relief for my son??s pain. Since leaving the appointment my son has collapsed under the pressure of the pain in his hip and knee when walking and had two bike crashes because his hip and leg fractures and muscular pain that cannot even handle the exercise of pedaling. My concern is Dr. Knuth spends more time explaining why our son fits into a specific category that will not benefit from surgery than he does in listening to mom and dad explain the pain their child is in and he also offers no hope to our son's hip disease as to any kind of correction. It's kind of like, so sorry, your son fits into this C category because he is in the most severe case of Legg Calves Perthes Disease and he has to live with what he has with no solutions. He tries to make informed decisions based on one persons study on Legg Calves Perthes Disease and makes a decision on my son's pain and tries to shove him into a category instead of listening, dealing with and healing solutions when one other Orthopedic Surgeon in Wisconsin was to help my son with surgery. My son is not a category, he is a human being with real feelings and severe pain that his mom and dad have had to deal with for the last year to year and a half with a persistent uneven limp and he has had to give up his sports, social life because of other children not understanding his disease, not being included in school activities, depression and mood disorders because of the daily pain that he deals with and now to have an Orthopedic Doctor push him into some statistic study and push his care off inevitably. I would be very leary of sending your child with Legg Calves Perthes Disease to this doctor. I have to go with my knowledge of my son and not by one man's study. I would not recommend Dr. Knuth.
