The team at Piedmont Orthopedics | OrthoAtlanta are the perfect fit for athletes and individuals aspiring to live healthier lives in the Atlanta area. The knee is a perfect hinge mechanism, stabilized and cushioned by a well-orchestrated system of ligaments, cartilage, and muscles. Knees are vital parts of our bodies, and take a beating every day. From your workout routines and job duties to sports activities, playtime with your kids, and simple household tasks, knees undergo a constant and strenuous toll on their structure. 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 components of your knee. That's what makes the right knee specialist essential, no matter whether you're dealing with an ACL tear or need an orthopedic knee replacement.

Piedmont Orthopedics | 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 reconstruction to complex total knee replacement, Piedmont Orthopedics | OrthoAtlanta orthopedic surgeons have the advanced training and expertise needed to address injury to the muscles, joints, and ligaments in the knee. Runner's knee, knee tendonitis, or even unanticipated degenerative joint disease can all find a comprehensive treatment solution through our orthopedic specialists.

Learn about common knee conditions and treatment options including non-surgical procedures, minimally invasive arthroscopy, and advanced surgical procedures in the educational videos accessible below. Or, if you prefer, contact us today to schedule a consultation and let our doctors start targeting your specific knee pain and joint issues with practical and helpful solutions.
