Non-Surgical Treatment

You may not need surgery for pain relief. Anti-inflammatory medication can reduce swelling in the knee joint. Physical therapy and prescribed exercise can strengthen your joints and relieve pain. In many cases this will relieve the symptoms and surgery will not be required.

 

 

Surgical Treatment

If your symptoms are more serious, your physician may recommend surgery. Boulder Community Health Orthopedics offers the latest innovative procedures to reduce pain and restore mobility. 

 

Arthroscopic Knee Surgery is a minimally invasive technique that repairs soft tissue injuries. If left untreated, your tissue injury may progress into a more serious problem.

 

Partial Knee Resurfacing uses Mako, an advanced, surgeon-controlled robotic arm that allows the surgeon to resurface the diseased bone in the knee, sparing the patient’s healthy bone and surrounding tissue. An implant is then secured in the joint to allow the knee to move smoothly again.

 

Partial Knee Replacement is an alternative to total knee replacement when knee pain is confined to an area (compartment) of your knee – lateral, patellofemoral or medial.  This procedure repairs the diseased area of the knee by replacing it with an implant, saving as much of your natural knee as possible.

 

Total Knee Replacement is the most comprehensive knee surgery that replaces the entire damaged portion of the femur (thighbone) and tibia (shin bone) with an artificial knee joint, also known as a prosthesis or implant. This surgery has a high success rate and may offer the best treatment option for long-term improvement when other treatments have proven inadequate.
