Our Knee Surgeries
When making treatment decisions, your doctor will consider what type of knee problems you are having. Maybe you are having trouble putting weight on your knee or can't bend or stretch it. Or you hear popping or other noises when you move.
It's common to try rest and other nonsurgical treatment first. If surgery is your best option, we're here to help you with treatments for common and complex problems. Our surgeries include:
You may hear knee replacement surgery called total or partial knee replacement or knee arthroplasty. You might have a knee replacement because of:
- Arthritis, like osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis
- Knee injuries or loss of blood flow to the knees
- Problems like knock knees
Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive knee surgery, meaning surgeons keep incisions small. Your surgeon puts a very small camera (an arthroscope) into your knee joint and uses the camera and small surgical instruments to repair your knee.
Knee cartilage repair
Many people need cartilage repair in their knees because of wear and tear from regular activities or sports. Surgeons repair the smooth white tissue at the end of your bones so your joint can move smoothly.
Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) repair and posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) repair
Your ACL and PCL help hold your knee together and let it rotate. Learn more about our sports medicine surgeries.
