Collapsing Knee

For about 10 years my right knee has collapsed. When it started, it was collapsing about once every two months; now, it's collapsing at the rate of about once a week. I can be walking or standing and suddenly, with no warning, I find myself on the ground. In August I fell and broke my right ankle; now, I fear a more serious injury. The orthopedic doctor says no surgery will correct the problem. He recommends a brace or a visit to a vascular surgeon. Has anyone had a similar problem? How was it corrected with you? I am hugely frustrated with this! Thanks for any input you can give.
