Knee Replacement Surgery-Revision

Hi , I am Aravindkrishnan from Coimbatore . I just want to understand the intricacies of knee replacement surgery. My mother in law has to go for Knee Replacement surgery-Revision(Since her primary surgery was unsuccessful ). Our surgeon prefers foreign vendor knee than Indian vendors.

Do we have quality standard for Indian vendors ?? How good it is ??.

I have been on Suboxone for the past 18 months and I'm at my final month taking only 1/4 tab per day. I voluntarily went to an addiction specialist to stop taking pain meds I was on for well over 6+ yrs. I have had several orthopedic issues which is the reason I was on some pretty heavy pain meds. The ortho issues I have were bilateral hip replacements with my right hip having 6 revisions since 2012 along with TWO back to back staph infections in it.
