Also, they can get it under control with normal antibiotics and it remains dormant, but in order to have a complete recovery you risk restarting the infection. Hopefully the European cure will work for most. It is more cost effective than antibiotics, just not approved in the US yet.
if it is better, cheaper, and safer than current drugs on the US market, it will never be approved.

good luck to joe. 7 surgeries to clean out that knee aint no joke.
