Knees are crucial to how we walk, run, play sports and work. The physicians at Allied Bone and Joint want to help you regain function and keep your life in motion. As with the hip, many knee problems can be treated without surgery. Some problems, however, require surgical intervention.
We provide comprehensive and specialized care to treat all conditions of the knee and ankle such as sports related injuries, fractures, deformities, congenital defects and other disease processes. By getting treatment as early as possible, patients can be assured of the very best care.
Our orthopedic surgeons are highly trained in the most advanced surgical techniques including:
- Arthroscopic surgery
- Total knee replacement
Arthroscopy is a surgical procedure that uses microscopic cameras and instruments to address many knee problems. This type of surgery can be performed on:
- Ligament injuries (ACL, PCL, MCL, and LCL)
- Meniscus injuries (flexible cartilage shock absorbers in the knee)
- Patella/kneecap disorders
- Tendon injuries or disorders (quadriceps and patella tendons)
Some of these injuries are relatively simple to treat, while other require more advanced reconstructive techniques.
Unfortunately, when joint cartilage is destroyed, severely damaged, or worn away, often the best treatment is joint replacement surgery. Our surgeons have been performing these specialized surgeries for decades in the most advanced and least invasive methods to get you back to a life in motion as quickly as possible.
Ankle and foot injuries can also affect a life in motion. Like hips and knees, many ankle and foot disorders, can be treated non-operatively. These include but are not limited to:
- Achilles pain
- Plantar fasciitis
- Ankle/foot arthritis
- Tendon and nerve disorders
At Allied Bone and Joint both locations have the ability to manage these complaints and get you back to an active life.
