  • Meniscus tears or deterioration

Latest treatments for knee pain

The orthopedic specialists at Centura Orthopedics & Spine offer comprehensive treatment for knee pain. Using the latest techniques, we will accurately diagnose the cause of your knee pain. Then, our providers will work with you to devise a custom treatment plan. If appropriate, our knee specialists will recommend conservative treatments first, such as physical therapy or injections using corticosteroids or hyaluronic acid.

When surgery is necessary, we offer comprehensive surgical options from ACL repair to total knee joint replacement. Our orthopedic surgeons also offer the latest advancements, such as the 3D ConforMIS custom implant, and partial knee replacement.  

Specialized advanced knee pain treatments offered by Centura Orthopedics include:

  • Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)

    Certain conditions that cause knee pain may benefit from a new procedure, called platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP). This treatment is used for specific conditions and usually after other non-surgical options have been tried. Our knee specialists will help determine if this procedure is right for you. If so, Centura Orthopedics surgeon Michael B. Simpson, MD, is among the first board-certified orthopedic physicians in the region to offer this latest treatment, which uses a patient’s own blood cells to promote and accelerate healing and prevent deterioration. Treatment, which is done in our physician’s office, begins with an X-ray evaluation to identify the source of pain, and make sure the patient’s condition will benefit from PRP. The treatment itself is completed in a few minutes, and most patients are able to resume their normal activities the next day.

  • Custom Knee Replacement

    Centura Orthopedics knee specialists include several orthopedic surgeons who specialize in total knee replacement surgery. In addition, some patients may benefit from a specialized option called the ConfoMis custom implant. Using proprietary algorithms, the ConforMIS technology uses images from a CT scan to map your knee and create a 3D model. The software then uses that information to design a customized implant. Centura Orthopedics surgeons Derek Johnson, MD, and Ronald Royce, DO, were among Colorado’s first orthopedic surgeons to offer the 3D ConforMIS custom implant .

  • Partial Knee Replacement

    Our orthopedic knee specialists are among the region’s few surgeons to offer partial knee replacements to patients who are candidates for this alternative to total knee replacement. Our specialists will help determine if you may be a candidate for one of the two types of partial replacement:

    • unicompartmental arthroplasty for the inside or outside of the knee. Most patients go home the same day, versus three or four days for a total knee replacement.
    • patellofemoral arthroplasty to replace the kneecap. Patients typically spend one night in the hospital.

    Is partial knee replacement right for you?

    If you’re facing knee surgery, you may not realize there are knee pain treatment options beyond a total knee replacement.

  • Meniscus Repair

    Our orthopedic physicians are highly experienced at a procedure called a partial meniscectomy, that trims or removes the damaged tissue to restore stability and eliminate pain. 

  • Osteonecrosis Bone Disease Treatment

    Centura Orthopedics & Spine doctors provide expert treatment for osteonecrosis. Our orthopedic doctors perform arthroscopic microfracture and core decompression to treat osteonecrosis.

  • Sports Medicine

    We also offer specialized services for knee pain and knee injuries resulting from sports or activity. Our sports medicine experts have advanced treatment in conditions including ligament tears, including the ACL and MCL injuries, IT band syndrome, and jumper’s knee. We can recommend treatment to relieve the pain as quickly as possible to get you back in action and also prevention measures to help ensure the problem doesn’t occur again.
