I highly recommend Dr. Messieh! He drained mine several years ago and it's been great since then. He has also taken care of a frozen shoulder for me. He does not rush to surgery. His local phone number is 352-243-6899.

You might want to look into Synvisc injection. This is not a cortisone product. It is synthetic viscosity, a gel like substance which cushions the bones in your knee joint. I have had 3 injections in the last 8 years and I still have my knee. I was going to have knee replacement surgery but tried this first and the knee joint is still good.
