Knees

Overview

Knee problems can present as a variety of symptoms including pain, swelling, stiffness, limited mobility, weakness, and instability, in addition to grinding and clicking. Knee pain may occur suddenly or gradually worsen over time. Sources of pain can come from ligaments, tendons, meniscus, cartilage, arthritis, or the knee cap. With the knee being the largest weight-bearing joint in the human body, knee discomfort can seriously limit your mobility and disrupt your lifestyle and even sleep.

Treatment for knee pain ranges from conservative, non-operative treatments to surgical intervention.  Non-operative treatments include physical therapy, injections (cortisone, Visco-supplementation – gel shots), medications (nonprescription and prescription), bracing, activity modification, lifestyle changes, low impact exercise, and soft tissue modalities consisting of ice, heat and massage.

Our Personalized and Patient-Centered Approach

At Orthopaedic Associates, we carefully tailor each patient’s treatment plan to their individual diagnosis, lifestyle, and treatment goals. Our providers start by accurately diagnosing your knee problem through an extensive medical history, physical examination, and utilizing diagnostic imaging when indicated. Our knee specialists understand the importance of engaging in two-way communication when developing your treatment plan for recovery.

Many knee injuries are initially treated with non-operative intervention. However, for the cases where surgical treatment is the ideal option, our team of highly qualified providers and therapists are dedicated to your full recovery.  For injuries that requires minimally invasive surgical intervention, we offer the option of having your knee procedure performed in our in-house office operating room. This option provides you with surgical intervention that is considerable more efficient, convenient, and cost effective than an ambulatory or hospital setting. Regardless of treatment plan, conservative or surgical, our goal is to get you back to the activities that matter to you.
