Total Knee Replacement - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Your knee joint is made up of the lower end of the femur, which hinges on the upper end of the tibia and the patella, or kneecap, which slides along the groove formed by the femoral condyles. Total knee replacement surgery is a procedure in which a painful or poorly functioning knee is replaced with artificial components. If your physician has recommended a total knee replacement, it is probably because your knee is severely damaged by arthritis or injury. Your surgeon will begin by making an incision along the front edge of your knee. After separating the muscles and ligaments around your knee, your surgeon will incise the knee capsule to gain access to the inside of the joint. Using specialized tools, your surgeon will remove that damaged bone and cartilage on the ends of the femur and the tibia, and in most cases, remove the underside of the patella. Your surgeon will then prepare the remaining bone to receive your new prosthetic knee. This generally consists of a femoral, a tibial, and a patellar component. Once the ends of the bones are prepared, your surgeon will cement the new prostheses into position. Before your incision is closed, an x-ray will be taken to ensure that the new components of your knee are positioned correctly. Your surgeon will close the incision with stitches or staples.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"Thank you for the splendid medical-legal art work you did for us in the case of a young girl who was blinded by a bb pellet. As a result of your graphic illustrations of this tragic injury, we were able to persuade the insurance company to increase their initial offer of $75,000.00 to $475,000.00, just short of their policy limits.

We simply wanted you to know how pleased we were with your work which, to repeat, was of superlative character, and to let you know that we would be more than willing to serve as a reference in case you ever need one. Many thanks for an extraordinary and dramatic depiction of a very serious injury which clearly "catapulted" the insurance company's offer to a "full and fair" amount to settle this case."

"[Your staff] was extremely efficient, cooperative and gracious and [their] efforts produced a demonstrative exhibit that we used effectively throughout our trial. The jury verdict of $3,165,000.00 was, in no small measure, due to the impact of the demonstrative evidence. You may be sure that we will call again."

"I have found that the personalized medical illustrations prepared by Medical Legal Art have been very accurate and helpful. The medical doctors, both treating physicians and expert witnesses, have commented on the accuracy and professionalism of the medical illustrations. Most importantly, your prompt service and attention upon even short notice has been tremendous. I can certainly say that the medical illustrations prepared by Medical Legal Art have assisted us in bringing cases to a successful resolution."

"At 3 PM it hit me--I needed exhibits of a tracheostomy, a coronary artery bypass and a deep vein thrombosis--all in time for a for-trial video deposition the next day. The Doe Report had each exhibit on line. In addition, I ran across an exhibit I hadn't even thought of: reduced ejection fraction after a heart attack. Because this was a video deposition, I could use the e-mail version of the medical exhibit, print it on my color copier, and let the camera zoom in. For $400, less than one blow-up by one of The Doe Report's competitors, I got four first-rate exhibits in less than a day. The Doe Report saved me time and money."
