I have been a member of your Cigna PPO insurance since March 12, 2001. During that time I have participated  within the network of physicians listed by the plan. However, my primary care physician, Dr. Jennifer Snyder  believes that the best care for me at this time would be a Patellafemoral Arthroplasty (27442). At this time there is  not a physician within the network who has extensive knowledge of this procedure. Dr. Kunta Semiodome, a plan

I have enclosed a letter from Dr. Jennifer Snyder explaining why she recommends a Patellafemoral Arthroplasty (27442).
