Health Information


  • Knee Pain and Problems

    Common knee problems include sprains, strains, torn cartilage, and arthritis.

  • Torn Meniscus

    Between the bones of the knees are two crescent-shaped discs of connective tissue, called menisci, which also act as shock absorbers to cushion the lower part of the leg from the weight of the rest of the body. Meniscus tears can occur when twisting while bearing weight.

  • Ligament Injuries to the Knee

    The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is one of the most common ligaments to be injured. Learn about the four major ligaments of the knee.

  • Evaluation Procedures

    To help the orthopedist determine your treatment, you'll need a physical exam, a medical history profile, and a description of symptoms.

  • Treatment Plans

    For most orthopedic disorders and injuries, more than one form of treatment may be appropriate.

  • Arthroscopy

    Orthopedic surgeons use arthroscopy to diagnose and treat joint problems. An arthroscope is a small, tube shaped instrument that is used to look inside a joint.

  • Joint Replacement Surgery

    Joint replacement is a surgical procedure to remove and replace an arthritic or damaged joint with an artificial joint, called a prosthesis.

  • Knee Replacement Surgery

    When a knee is severely damaged by disease or injury, an artificial knee replacement may be considered.
