The knee is a perfect hinge mechanism, stabilized and cushioned by a well-orchestrated system of ligaments, cartilage, and muscles. Unfortunately, your knees take a beating every day. Work-out routines, sports activities, job duties, and even household tasks can take a toll on our knees. A sudden twist the wrong way, an aggressive sudden movement, or the cumulative effect of long-term wear and tear can ultimately lead to failure in one or more of the structures in your knee.
OrthoAtlanta physicians provide comprehensive care for the multitude of conditions and injuries impacting the knee. When appropriate, non-surgical treatment of the knee is considered first, utilizing conservative procedures such as injections, medication, activity modification, bracing, and physical therapy.
When a knee injury is more serious, or when conservative measures fail to provide you relief, your medical specialist will discuss the next steps, and together you will determine whether surgery is the right plan. From straightforward meniscus tears to ACL reconstructions and complex total knee replacements, OrthoAtlanta orthopedic surgeons have the advanced training and expertise needed to address injury to the muscles, joints, and ligaments in the knee.
