Care for knee injuries and conditions
We treat a wide range of knee problems, including:
- Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease that affects mostly middle-aged and older adults. It may cause the breakdown of joint cartilage and adjacent bone in the knees.
- Rheumatoid arthritis causes inflammation of the synovial lining of the joint, causing extra synovial fluid which leads to severe pain and stiffness.
Ligament injuries and tears
Sidelined by a sports injury?
Knee replacement and revision
When other treatments are no longer working to relieve your joint pain, you may be considering a knee replacement. We provide partial and total knee replacement options, supported by pre- and post-surgery rehabilitation to return you to your regular lifestyle as quickly as possible.
What is knee replacement surgery?
Why might I need knee replacement surgery?
Osteoarthritis, the breakdown of joint cartilage and bone, is the most common problem that leads to knee replacement surgery. This “wear and tear” joint disease mostly affects middle-aged and older adults.
Other forms of arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis and arthritis caused by a knee injury, can also lead to degeneration of your knee joint. Fractures, torn cartilage, or torn ligaments also can lead to permanent damage to your knee joint over time.

How do I know if I need knee replacement surgery?
Ask yourself these questions:
- Is your knee pain limiting your normal activity?
- Are you experiencing knee pain while resting during the day or night?
- Have you been using medication for pain relief, but it’s no longer helping?
- Does your knee remain swollen even after rest and medications?
If you answered yes to any of these, let’s meet to discuss your injury and the best treatment for you. Contact us to make an appointment.
