The Painful Knee

Knee injuries are common. They can occur with the usual activities of daily living such as going up and down the stairs or with sports activities such as soccer, basketball, or tennis. Whatever the cause may be, knee injuries can result in considerable pain, swelling, and restricted mobility.

The knee joint is also the target of wear and tear associated with aging, referred to as “degenerative joint disease,” also known as “arthritis” or “osteoarthritis.”

Whether your symptoms are acute after an injury or the result of chronic wear and tear, DO NOT DELAY TREATMENT. Get the help you deserve from one of our experienced Board-certified or fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeons who specialize in the treatment of knee conditions and are here to assist you with the best and most up-to-date treatment modalities available.
