Knee pain is a common complaint that affects individuals of all ages, including children and adults. It is typically the result of inflammation and redness when the muscles, ligaments, tendons, or cartilage surrounding the joint are damaged or strained due to an injury, overuse, or a disease such as arthritis, gout, or an autoimmune disease. In addition, participating in athletic sports, gardening, or performing repetitive tasks that require constant standing, lifting, or bending, increases the likelihood of developing knee pain, shoulder pain, or foot pain at some point.
If you are experiencing knee pain, shoulder pain, or foot pain that doesn't go away with over-the-counter non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAIDs) therapy, contact us to schedule an appointment with one of our top orthopedic specialists. Your physician will conduct a thorough examination, including family and medical history, and order a series of images such as an x-ray or MRI to diagnose the condition. When non-surgical treatment isn’t helping, your physician may recommend surgery to relieve pain and inflammation and restore range of motion in the joint.
There are two types of knee replacement surgeries:
Partial Knee Replacement: A partial knee replacement replaces the damaged cartilage in the medial compartment with a prosthetic implant. Since this type of surgery affects only one side of the knee, it typically has a faster recovery than a total knee replacement.
Total Knee Replacement: During a total knee replacement surgery, the entire knee joint is replaced with a prosthetic implant secured to the bone.
It is essential to follow your orthopedic surgeon's advice for post-operative recovery to reduce the risk of complications. Keep in mind that it may be several weeks before you can resume driving or other activities.
