Our Hip and Knee Experts Get You Back on Your Feet
Did you know that knee problems are the most common reason people see orthopedic surgeons?
The knee is the largest joint in the body and it helps us enjoy everything from walking and running to playing sports and dancing.
But knees are just one element of good mobility. Healthy hips are key to the basic activities of daily living like walking, sitting, standing and climbing stairs.
As a major weight bearing joint, the hip can break down over time due to normal wear and tear, ligament or tendon damage, or degenerative diseases like arthritis. The hip is also prone to breaks and fractures, especially as we age. Knee pain can be caused by arthritis, cartilage problems and tears, traumatic injury and fractures or simple overuse.
There are many ways to treat hip and knee pain, such as anti-inflammatory medications, physical therapy and surgery, including arthroscopic surgery.
