Our Knee Doctors Care for Patients Just Like You
When a patient first notices pain, it’s common to wait to see if it will go away. However, pain may not improve, and some knee injuries should be treated immediately, like fractures. It’s important not to wait too long if you believe you have any type of orthopedic problem.
Our knee specialists provide the expert care a patient needs, including medication, X-rays and MRIs, physical therapy, home exercise and injury prevention programs, or surgery, such as knee replacement. Advanced nonsurgical treatment options include ultrasound-guided treatments, and steroid treatments for the knee joint as well as bracing. Our doctors and surgeons are also trained in hip treatment and can offer expert care for knee and hip pain related to any hip injury or condition.
If knee surgery is the treatment your doctor recommends, your orthopedic knee surgeon, backed by our entire knee treatment team, can expertly perform the surgery using our state-of-the-art equipment. Our surgeons offer the full range of knee surgeries, from joint replacement such as partial and total knee replacement to minimally invasive surgeries to help patients with knee injuries related to sports medicine, including:
- ACL reconstruction
