Our specialty-trained knee doctors at our Joint Replacement Center and Sports Medicine Center of Excellence at Tri-County Orthopedics are recognized and respected experts in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of knee injuries and conditions.
A common complaint amongst nearly everyone is knee pain. There can be several reasons or causes for knee pain, such as a tear in the cartilage or ligament or the onset and effects of arthritis. Depending on the cause of your knee pain, treatments for knee pain can vary, from conservative nonsurgical care to minimally invasive knee surgery and knee replacements.
Patients who suffer from knee pain may visit their primary care physician's office, though a referral is often made to an orthopedic surgeon, who is a medical doctor trained to treat injuries and conditions of the bones, joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments of the entire body, including those from sports-related activities or the onset of aging conditions like arthritis. Specialists who undergo additional specialized training through a fellowship are often referred to as knee specialists and are often experts in sports medicine or joint replacement.
If you're suffering knee pain, it may be time to visit a joint or sports medicine doctor at Tri-County Orthopedics.
