When you have tried everything to ease knee pain, but nothing else has worked, it’s time to look at alternative options such as knee surgery. While knee surgery may seem daunting, it can provide relief from pain and freedom from the limitations of knee problems that have been holding you back from doing the things you love. If noninvasive methods haven’t worked, surgical knee treatments may be recommended. Top-notch orthopedic knee surgeons at AICA Orthopedics can perform surgical procedures to address all types of knee pain.
Knee problems that require knee surgeon can begin as common knee pain symptoms and progress to move severe conditions if left untreated. Knee pain may include such symptoms as stiffness, swelling, weakness, instability when putting weight on the knee, or inability to straighten the knee. Sometimes, knee injuries caused by playing sports or twisting or turning the knee wrong while walking can also cause knee damage and pain. If you experience any of these signs of knee problems, be sure to visit your local orthopedic specialist at AICA Orthopedics who can diagnose and treat knee pain.
Knee surgery at AICA Orthopedics may be required to correct several different types of knee injuries or conditions. A torn meniscus, which is a wedge of cartilage in the knee to provide cushion and support between the patella, can be corrected with knee surgery. Although opening up the knee full to repair a meniscus injury isn’t ideal and can require a longer recovery, this type of repair will restore the function of the knee and offers improved long term results for a better prognosis and a successful outcome. Another knee injury can involve a knee dislocation. The kneecap is designed to move up and down within a set of cartilage. But sometimes the kneecap will dislocate from the groove, causing extreme pain, especially when bending the knee joint. When this happens, a lateral release knee surgery can correct the problem. A lateral release knee surgery loosens the ligaments that pull the kneecap out of place. Our experienced knee surgeons at AICA Orthopedics can help you determine if you are a good candidate for a lateral release procedure. Another type of knee surgery that you may require is a knee replacement surgery. The knee is one of the most used joints in the body as we use it for every part of movement such as sitting, standing, walking, running, and getting around. Wear and tear over time can take a toll on this joint. As cartilage wears down, the bones begin rubbing together, causing extreme pain. Replacing the knee joint can bring about relief from arthritis pain. Depending on the severity of the condition, your AICA Orthopedics knee surgeon might recommend a partial or total knee replacement. Guaranteed, our highly experienced knee surgeons at AICA Orthopedics will provide an accurate diagnosis as well as a thorough treatment plan that may include knee surgery to address knee pain.
