I had my right knee replaced. In almost six months later, I could not be happier with the results. They are straightforward and tell it like it his. I cannot say enough about the people who work there.P. M.
At Performance Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine, our knee experts offer surgical procedures for treatment of chronic knee pain caused by arthritis or injury. We will recommend knee surgery when the pain cannot be resolved by nonsurgical methods.
There are Two Main Surgical Options for Knee Surgery:
- Knee Arthroscopy
- Knee Replacement
Arthroscopic surgery of the knee can treat most conditions causing knee pain. It is the preferred surgical method because it results in shorter recovery times, reduced scarring and reduced trauma to the surgical area. Our surgeons utilize arthroscopy to diagnose and repair knee problems such as:
- Torn ACLs
- Meniscal Tears
Arthritis is a condition which can occur in the knee when the cartilage has been worn away leading to knee pain, stiffness, and swelling. If arthritis cannot be improved with nonsurgical methods, surgery might be recommended. Two primary types of knee replacement surgery are:
- Total Knee Arthroplasty – only performed in certain complicated conditions
- Partial Knee Arthroplasty – less invasive and has a quicker recovery time than total knee replacement
