You can also adjust the opacity of the overlay’s black background for better contrast.

Patient walking with a stick. Main problem is still knee pain. Unfortunately this was expected from the beginning. No major pin site problems. Clinically everything looks well and progressing toward the union. Bone regenerate is also maturing satisfactorily.

  2. Follow uo in 6 weeks to discus CT scan results and possible removal of frame
