I don't see why that would matter - I had Quadriceplasty left knee realignment (say that five times fast) about a year and half ago, myself. I finished four months of therapy after and it's actually in better shape than my good knee! If it doesn't affect your performence I don't know what the problem would be.

I had knee and back surgery and was hired by Continental Express and Continental. I just flew with a Captain with Lukimea (Sp?).
