Common Causes for Knee Pain
Our team of surgeons at Premier Osteoarthritis Centers of Pennsylvania has many years of experience with a multitude of knee-related issues. Because your knee injury is so unique to you, there are many causes of knee pain that we will look for, including:
- Cartilage injuries
- Multi-ligament tears
- Patellar dislocations
- ACL tears
- Meniscal tears
- Fractures of the patella, and more
If diagnosed with a knee problem (like the ones seen above) that needs surgical attention, you can be assured that you will be taken care of at Premier Osteoarthritis Centers of Pennsylvania. Any type of surgery is a huge decision, and our surgical team will go over the details of your case and work on a treatment option that will be best for you and your lifestyle. By doing so, we can determine if a partial or full knee replacement will be right for you.
If the best course of treatment is knee replacement surgery, there are certain things you can expect before, during, and after. For example, if you are getting a partial knee-replacement surgery, this could be done as an outpatient procedure that allows you to resume daily activities usually within 24 hours. In the case of a full knee replacement, the surgeon will usually remove the affected area and insert metal or plastic implants to replace the damaged area.
Whether you have received a partial or full knee replacement, patients are usually expected to get active to some degree the day of the surgery, whether by themselves or with the aid of a walker, crutches, or cane. The patient can typically expect a physical therapist to recommend exercises that the patient can do to help rebuild the strength and flexibility of the knee to ensure that you are doing everything you can to help with the healing process after surgery.
