At Avalon Surgery Center, our highly experienced doctors specialize in various kinds of orthopedic surgery, including knee surgery. Injuries to your knees are painful and debilitating. Knee injuries can prevent you from walking, driving and working. While minor injuries are treatable through non-surgical means, serious injuries require surgery for your leg to be fully functional. The knees are susceptible to various injuries caused by excessive twisting and force. Minor trauma can result in sprains, strains, or inflammation. Major trauma can result in tears to the meniscus, ACL, MCL, or other connective tissue. Major trauma can also cause complex or severe knee fractures. Trauma is not the only cause of knee injuries. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis in the knee. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative arthritis caused by wear and tear of the knee cartilage. Numerous effective non-surgical treatments are available to the manage pain, but when these treatments fail to restore use of the knee for daily activities, surgical intervention via knee surgery should be considered.
Our doctors are experienced in all methods of surgery. While some procedures are best done using traditional open surgery, many surgical procedures for the knee allow for the use of minimally invasive, arthroscopic surgery. During arthroscopic surgery, your surgeon inserts a small camera, called an arthroscope, into the knee joint. The camera displays pictures on a monitor, allowing your doctor to perform the entire surgery without the need for any large incisions. This technique is highly effective with minimal pain and scarring. Normally, arthroscopic surgery is an outpatient procedure and is the least invasive type of surgery.
Every case is different and the best treatment for one person may be different for another. Your knees are important weight-bearing joints, and if injured, you should consult with an experienced, knowledgeable specialist. The cause of knee pain is not always the knee. Knee pain can be the result of problems in the lower back or hip. For this reason it is crucial to work with a doctor you can trust to make sure you find the true cause of your pain. Otherwise, you could end up having knee surgery when you do not really need it.
