Sprains, while often mistaken for fractures, are soft-tissue injuries. The most common soft tissues affected by sprains are muscles, tendons, and ligaments.Click here to learn more about sprains.
Every year, millions of people see a doctor because of a ligament problem or tear. These injuries can lead to pain, and even disability, as the knee weakens and everyday activities become more painful and difficult.Click here to learn more about MCL tears.
A fracture is a broken bone. Bones can be broken in a variety of ways, whether the fracture is complete or partial. Fractures are painful and should be set by a physician to ensure proper healing.Click here to learn more about fractures.
A dislocated bone is a bone that is either sometimes or always out of its joint. Dislocated bones are not necessarily broken, but they may lead to instability and disability if not properly treated.Click here to learn more about dislocated knees and knee instability.
Plica syndrome, or synovial plica syndrome, is caused by the inflammation of a thin layer of tissue called the synovium. The synovium, which lines the joint and holds it together, can become inflamed and cause pain. In some cases, pieces of the synovium can break off and float in the area around the joint, causing synovial chondromatosis.Click here to learn more about plica syndrome and synovial chondromatosis.
A variety of non-surgical treatments exist for treating knee conditions, and we believe in pursuing non-invasive treatments whenever possible. While some orthopedic conditions necessitate surgery, and while many safe and effective surgical treatments exist, many patients are able to make a full recovery without it. Some non-surgical treatments include braces and casts for fractures, injections to reduce inflammation and improve joint function, and physical therapy to remediate impairment and promote mobility and function. We view every patient as a distinct individual with unique needs – schedule an appointment to meet with our team of physicians and discuss what treatment options are best for you.
Braces, casts, and splints are all used to keep a part of the body in place while healing. When you break a bone, your doctor will put the pieces back together in the right positions so they can heal.Click here to learn more about braces, casts, and splints.
Knee arthroscopy is a surgical procedure where a camera is inserted into the knee, allowing your doctor to diagnose problems without making a large incision. This technique can result in less pain, less stiffness, and a shorter recovery.Click here to learn more about knee arthroscopy.
If your knee is severely damaged, everyday activities may be difficult or even impossible. In that case, your doctor may recommend a knee arthroplasty, or replacement, a safe and effective procedure that can relieve pain, correct knee deformity, and get your life back to normal.Click here to learn more about knee arthroplasty.
