What is Knee Pain?

Knee pain can be very limiting, especially for active people. In older people, the cause is often arthritis, but knee pain is also common in younger patients. This type of knee pain is also called patellofemoral pain, anterior knee pain, runner's knee, or jumper's knee. It affects women more often than men.
Common knee injuries and joint diseases include arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and other metabolic bone diseases.

  • Conservative treatments: Rest, medication, and physical therapy are often the most effective ways to treat an injury.
  • Injection therapy: Some conditions respond well to medication applied directly at the point of injury. Our doctors use ultrasound to guide them to exactly the right spot.
  • Surgical Treatments: Using a tiny camera slipped through a small incision, our surgeons can see inside your injured joint. They watch their progress on a video monitor while they repair torn tendons and ligaments, reshape bones, or remove fragments of bone and cartilage. Our surgeons and neurosurgeons use the most advanced techniques to repair and rebuild bones and joints, treat nerve damage, or replace joints when this is the best option. In situations where there is advanced arthritis, our knee replacement specialists provide state-of-the-art care, sometimes even as an outpatient.
