Non-Surgical Knee Treatments
Depending on the severity of a knee condition, physical therapy and at-home care can be effective treatment options. Before recommending surgery, our orthopedic experts work with patients to explore various treatment options and determine the best treatment plan.
Generally, if knee pain symptoms like swelling, buckling, clicking or locking of the knee joint continue after trying non-surgical knee pain treatments, joint replacement surgery may be the next step to relieving your knee pain and getting you back to doing the activities you love.
Partial Knee Replacement Surgery
Partial knee replacement surgery is a minimally invasive procedure where damaged cartilage is replaced with a prosthetic implant, while keeping healthy joint tissue in place. If arthritis or joint damage is confined to a limited area, a partial knee replacement may be a suitable treatment option.
Total Knee Replacement Surgery
When joint damage is extensive or widespread, a total knee replacement can restore a patient's joint function and minimize or eliminate ongoing knee pain. Using prosthetic materials, total knee replacement surgery resurfaces the joint so it can move and function like a healthy knee.
