Should I get a bone graft?

Contemplating a Bone Graft

I am 52 years old, and have run for 22 years and played all kinds of other sports. I no longer run on pavement. My right knee was diagnosed with osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) and I had meniscus surgery on the same knee a year and a half ago. At the follow-up my surgeon recommended that I have Osteochondral Allograft Transplant Surgery (OATS). I still play volleyball regularly and occasionally will play a game of basketball. I can still jog slowly on a treadmill.
