Knee pain

My grannie is 73 years old. She is suffering from pain in her right knee. She saw a specialist who gave her one look and said she must get a knee replacement operation. She doesn''t want to go through with it. She believes the pain is in her feet and travels up her leg. Can I take her to see a rheumatologist? Or do you have any other suggestions? Thank you.

She probably has severe degeneration of the knee joint due to osteoarthritis, but she is entitled to a second opinion and you can ask a rheumatologist's opinion too.
