I've had a lot of friends that have had it do.. If it was me I'd do both knees at the same time.. Of my friends that did they seam to come out better... Age is another thing, the darn replacements only last so long

You can get bovine values or pig values.. Bovine values are a little bigger but tougher for the doctor to work with where pig values are more supply and easier to work with.. These values are very small, about the size of a fingernail.. I my wife's case she was #10 at this hospital for this type of value replacement.. They didn't crack her chest.. A small 2 inch insurgent in her chest and a 1 inch cut in her groin.. They opened the aorta from the top take out the old value and put the pig value in through the vain in the groin and somehow sewed it in......... This is how Jimmy Dean sausage come on the market, from pigs raised for values..... Now I'm told they can do the whole operation going through a vain in the wrist......

My vanity left me 10 years ago when i got the scar from my belly button down into the never regions, so a zipper scar wouldn't bother me. In fact between the two scar's my whole front would look like a big zipper, kinda cool I think
