4 State Of The Art Treatments For Freedom From Knee Pain
Your knee pain may have come from a sports injury, degenerative arthritis, or a traumatic incident such as an auto accident. An orthopedic knee doctor can help you get back to a life free from knee pain.
Leading orthopedic surgeons, such as Dr. Sumit Dewanjee at FXRX Inc. in Phoenix, offers the most modern, state of the art treatments to relieve pain in the knee joint.
Knee arthroscopy is a minimally invasive knee procedure that is used to remedy damage to knee tissues and joint in cases of –
• Anterior cruciate ligament Injury
• Posterior cruciate ligament Injury
• Medial collateral ligament Injury
• Lateral collateral ligament Injury
• Meniscus Repair
• Meniscus Transplant Surgery
• Cartilage Damage
Partial and Total Knee Replacement
When all other treatments fail to bring any relief to a knee joint damaged due to osteoarthritis, one or all compartments of the knee may need to be replaced with a partial or total knee replacement. Modern techniques and technology have made it possible to perform knee replacement surgery with minimum damage to the surrounding soft tissue that aids faster recovery.
The modern implants have also improved over the years and last longer with minimal need for revisions.
Cartilage is the shock absorbing tissue in the knee that facilitates smooth knee movement. If it is damaged from arthritis or trauma, this tissue cushion may disappear and knee pain may intensify.
Knee cartilage can be allowed to regenerate with repair and regeneration procedures by one of the top orthopedic surgeons in Phoenix with specialized training at FXRX Inc. using –
• Articular Chondrocyte Implantation (ACI)
• Osteo-articular Transfer Surgery (OATS Procedure)
• Microfracture Procedure
• DeNovo® NT Natural Tissue Graft
• The Subchondroplasty® Procedure
Knee Arthritis Treatment
Knee arthritis is initially treated with injection of hyaluronic acid (the natural knee joint lubricant) for smooth movement. Injecting a hyaluronic acid substance such as Synvisc (TM symbol) or Hyalgan (TM symbol) may help significantly with knee pain due to arthritis.
Other treatments such as orthopedic bracing, steroid injections, and regenerative medicine with platelet rich plasma therapy are also utilized for pain relief. If that doesn’t show results, the doctor may recommend partial or total knee replacement, dependence upon the extent of knee damage, the severity of pain and relief from conservative treatments.
