    Ugh. That said...

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to nOOky again.


    Seriously though, what do they do with the old knee? I think a person could make a nice desk ornament out of their knee. Boil it, scrub it, dry it, mount it, etc.

    One of the most common medical waste disposal methods used for surgical waste is incineration, by controlled burning in an incinerator. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, incineration is used to treat about 90% of surgical wastes.
    The other main method is sterilizing in an autoclave.

    Most medical waste is ground up before/after sterilization. A company I use to work for, we supplied some of the equipment used for medical waste shredding. Essentially a giant meat grinder. The grinding blades were 1" thick hardened steel.

    Belated luck.

    Was it the left knee, right knee, or high knee?

    Do you hear same sound in the background as the six million dollar man did when moving your knee.... what was it... na-na-na-na-na-na (something like that) and do you move in slow motion

    My wife is a vet. They throw the things they take out of animals in the garbage and they go in the dumpster. I'd like to see the faces on the dumpster divers that root around in her trash for aluminum cans lol.

    Back in the early 90s, I had a buddy who was a staff plumber at University of Pennsylvania Medical School.

    The medical school used garbage disposals, like the most powerful premium kind you could have in your house, to grind up certain cadaver parts when they were finished with them. The school just replaced the garbage disposals when the blades got dull.

    So my plumber buddy would take the discarded garbage disposals, sharpen the blades, and sell them to friends and family who wanted to save a few bucks by having a "slightly used" premium garbage disposal instead of a brand new one.

    I took a pass on getting one, and spent the extra money for a new one.
