Knee Treatment – You Have Many Options to Heal

Living with pain is not an option many are willing to tolerate, especially when life becomes unbearable and debilitating.

There are many treatment options that are available to our patients, highly effective and will get you on the road to recovery, quickly.

Knee pain is very common and treatable. It is easy to diagnose why you have pain, but it takes a skilled physician to determine which treatments are best for healing.

Knee injuries occur in people who are athletic, play sports, have degenerative arthritis, osteoporosis, or a shocking life event (like a car accident).

Knee Arthroscopy (Knee Scope): Minimally invasive surgical procedure, where a highly trained surgeon will shave soft tissue or repair and reconstruct ligaments and cartilage.

Meniscectomy: most commonly used with a knee scope, where torn cartilage in the knee is shaved to alleviate knee pain.

Partial and Total Knee Replacement: one of the most successful orthopedic surgical procedures in treating your damaged knee, due to post-traumatic arthritis or inflammation. Partial knee replacement is beneficial to those patients who need only one part of the injured knee replaced.

Cartilage Regeneration: cushions the knee to allow for painless mobility.

Articular Chondrocyte Implantation: biopsy is taken to evaluate the cartilage in the knee, arthroscopic surgery is then performed to implant cartilage into the defect to heal.

Osteo Transfer Surgery: cartilage from a healthy area is taken and is moved to the damaged area in the knee.

Microfracture Procedure: an arthroscopy procedure used to stimulate new cartilage growth. If you cannot actively participate in sporting events, athletics (such as weight lifting or running) due to pain, then we recommend giving this treatment a try. We warn all patients that this procedure may not last long term.

DeNovo Natural Tissue Graft: used in the specific treatment of articular cartilage defect. This is one of our newest methods of rejuvenation and healing, where a donor’s juvenile cartilage is used. An outpatient procedure where donor tissue gets inserted into the defected area and molded with fibrin glue.

Orthopedic Bracing (Orthosis): is a medical device, with various functionalities. Sometimes it is used to reshape the body or hinder any mobility of a specified part of the body. The orthopedic brace is also used to take the weight off the injured area.

Steroid Injections: injecting medication into your knee will remove negative symptoms. The drugs work through your joints ( pained area) and work immediately. Inflammation tends to decrease within 24-48 hours but used for short-term relief only.
