Get Relief from Knee Pain

knee joint disorder

One in four American adults has knee pain (both acute onset and long-term or chronic) affecting their daily living. Injuries such as fractures, dislocations, sprains, and tears, along with arthritis are primary factors. Simple activities like walking can become excruciatingly painful and grueling. 

Moreover, the occurrence of pain is not limited to being mobile; the discomfort may arise even while sitting or lying down. If you are struggling with knee joint disorders, Granite Orthopaedics offers nonsurgical and surgical options to bring relief from pain and restore mobility.

Our Knee Procedures

Non-surgical or conservative treatment procedures

Our non-surgical treatments include physical therapy and lifestyle changes. We may also recommend using walking supports or bracing.

Knee Replacement Surgery

Knee Replacement

When non-surgical treatments are not effective at suppressing the pain or restoring function, we offer knee replacement surgery (also known as knee arthroplasty). 

During knee joint replacement surgery, an orthopedic surgeon removes the damaged portion of the knee joint and replaces it with an artificial joint. This procedure alleviates the stiffness and pain in the knees caused by diagnoses such as osteoarthritis. 

Joint replacement can dramatically reduce and sometimes eliminate symptoms related to osteoarthritis, such as pain, discomfort, limited mobility, and a decrease in range of motion, therefore significantly improving your quality of living.

A knee replacement procedure can be a total or partial replacement.

Total Knee Replacement

Total knee replacement is the most common type of knee replacement. The surgeon will replace your entire joint – including the surfaces of the thigh bone (femur) and shin bone (tibia) – with an artificial joint.

Partial Knee Replacement

A partial knee replacement is where only one damaged compartment of the knee is replaced, especially if arthritis only affects one side.

This is a less invasive procedure than a total knee replacement surgery and usually results in faster recovery and better function.  

Partial knee replacements work well for patients who are suffering from significant pain and mobility issues due to osteoarthritis. Please make an appointment with a knee specialist to discuss if a partial knee replacement is the best plan of action for your body. 

Other Knee Procedures Available at Granite Orthopaedics

In addition to partial and total knee replacements, our experienced orthopedic surgery team performs arthroscopic knee surgery (knee joint arthroscopy), knee cartilage repair, and knee joint and ligament repair.

Our highly trained and skilled orthopedic surgeons will conduct a thorough examination, assessing knee function, range of motion, stability, and strength. We will also check the conditions of the muscles, ligaments, tendons, and soft tissues surrounding the affected joint to determine proper medical recourse.

The decision to undergo knee replacement surgery is ultimately up to you. If you want to explore this surgical option, come to Granite Orthopaedics to get an expert opinion on the matter.

If you’re wondering if you are an ideal candidate for this option, our friendly and experienced orthopedic specialists will answer any questions you might have. Come to Granite Orthopaedics.
