New Sixers center Andrew Bynum will head to Germany in early September to have the same experimental procedure on his knee that Kobe Bryant, Grant Hill and Alex Rodriguez have undergone, according to a West Coast source with knowledge of the situation.

Bynum has had surgery on both of his knees. It is unknown whether the procedure will be performed on the one knee or both. According to the source, Bynum’s knees are fine and the procedure is non- surgical.

The procedure, known as Orthokine/Regenokine, will be performed by Dr. Peter Wehling. Bryant initially underwent the procedure to prevent the inevitable wearing down of his knee cartilage. The procedure is a derivation of platelet-rich plasma therapy, or PRP. The procedure, which is not yet performed in the United States, is less invasive than many, if not all, other forms of knee surgeries presently used.

Bynum dislocated his left knee cap in the January of the 2007-08 season and in May of that season Bynum underwent arthroscopic surgery on the knee. He also underwent surgery on his right knee following the 2009-10 season.

His recovery from that surgery took longer than expected and, as a result, Bynum only appeared in 54 games in the 2010-11 season.

This has been scheduled for awhile now. We were all very curious about it. We speculated whether or not it would cause Bynum to miss time.

I asked Eric Pincus on twitter when he was still a Laker if it would cause him to miss time and he said no. I'm not sure if anything has changed since then.

I agree we won't have to hold our breath whenever he jumps fora rebound. Also we won't be guessing which Bynum will show up on that night :rock:

This is actually the good surgery that helped Kobe, so if I were a 76'ers fan I wouldn't be worried about this particular procedure.

However I am glad Bynum's knees are no longer a concern of mine. :rock:

Stop making sense when people still want to blindly hate Bynum.

You too!
