Knee Specialist

Knee pain, discomfort, and injuries are a common complaint among people of all ages. This joint is one of the most-used in the entire body and is prone to a range of issues that may be related to your health, traumatic injuries, or degradation over the years.

Understanding knee pain, and the types of issues there may be regarding them, is the first step to getting the treatment you need. To learn more about this common affliction, please read the information we’ve provided below.


Common knee problems

As you age, you may experience knee pain and inability to move around as a result. Underlying illnesses and bone deterioration may be the leading causes of knee problems for older adults. The conditions that might be causing these knee-related problems are arthritis, osteoarthritis, tendonitis, and strained ligaments. Some of these issues may arise from the wear and tear of knees during your life. While prevention is a better alternative than cure, you can’t always escape these conditions. Hence, surgical interventions may be required.

Additionally, people who play sports and other intensive physical activities may be more prone to knee-related problems. These may involve overuse injuries caused by repetitive motions—including patellar tendinitis, runner’s knee, and IR band syndrome, among others. Traumatic sports-related injuries can also be caused by sharp, severe trauma to the knee. Fractures, dislocations, ligament tears, and sprains are some such injuries. Some examples of these include kneecap fractures, posterior cruciate ligament tears, anterior cruciate ligament tears, and meniscus tears.
Problems with the knee joints can be treated with hyaluronic acid injections. Get in touch with us to know more.

When should I seek medical help?

Knee injuries and damage can incapacitate you, reducing your range of motions and making it difficult to maintain your functionality. These are many symptoms that point to knee problems, whether they’re due to acute or chronic conditions.

Some of the signs of knee injury include tenderness, swelling, numbness, pain, limited movement, and inability to withstand your weight. Additionally, tingling sensations and popping sounds may also accompany the injury.

If you’ve been injured or are experiencing worsening chronic knee problems, it’s imperative to visit an orthopedic specialist. We can provide comprehensive treatment and management strategies to help you live a pain-free life.

What can you expect from our knee specialists?

There are various reconstructive, minimally-invasive, and corrective surgical procedures that you can expect when you seek professional help for knee pain. Conservative treatments may be useful in times of acute, minor injuries, but surgery may be a necessity for more severe cases.

The type of treatment relies on the nature of your injury. Broken, fragmented, or splintered bones—as in the case of knee fractures—may require additional support, immobilization, and rehabilitation.

Some of the treatments we offer are ACL Reconstruction, Knee Fracture Surgery, Partial Knee Replacement, or Total Knee Replacement. Our specialists may even prescribe non-surgical treatments like physical therapy to assist your recovery.

Arthroscopy is a commonly-used surgical procedure in these cases. We utilize it to view, diagnose, and treat the injury or chronic knee conditions. By making a small incision and reviewing the affected area, we can effectively treat the problem through surgery. Our arthroscopic treatment may be a viable alternative for you if you’re looking for a little downtime, smoother recovery, and less pain.
