Treatment for Knee Pain
From climbing stairs to gardening, your knees support you through most of your daily activities. An injury or a degenerative bone disease can sideline you from those activities. At Hi-Desert Medical Center, we strive to help you maintain your independence and mobility without pain.
While 90 percent of patients experience dramatic pain reduction following knee replacement surgery, your condition may not require surgery. We also offer a range of nonsurgical options to help you manage chronic pain, such as medication, cortisone injections and physical therapy.
If you need a knee replacement, we offer advanced surgical procedures that allow surgeons to achieve a new level of precision designed to help you heal as quickly as possible with minimal scarring.
Are You a Candidate for Knee Replacement Surgery?
The most common reasons for knee replacement surgery are:
- Osteoarthritis, a loss of joint cartilage that limits movement, causes pain and inhibits daily activity
- Other forms of arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis
- Damage to the knee, such as fractures, torn cartilage and/or torn ligaments
- Degenerative joint disease
