Is this group still active? Complex Knee revisions?

Hi! My name is Heather. I am a candidate for a knee revision at this time due to loosening/dislocations of the PFJ implant but the prognosis for outcome is not good! I've had a past hx of severe knee fx, ALOT of surgery, athrofibrosis, adv OA, nerve damage, RSD/CRPS, muscle wasting, osteoporosis with a non-usable lower limb. Aside from TKR revision which is laden with risks, including fractures, I'm unsure what other options I may have to repair the knee.
