Knee Concerns

It’s a wonderful thing to be able to get down on the floor to play with your children, work in your vegetable garden, or climb a hill for a better look at the sunset. Painful knees can hold you back from enjoying life.

Your knees are made of a complex structure of bones, ligaments, tendons and nerves that can be thrown out of balance by injury or illness. Many people have problems with their ligaments and cartilage (especially the meniscus, a special piece of cartilage in the knee) when they age or after years of athletic- or work-related wear and tear.

If you suffer aches or sharp pains and/or have trouble standing up, walking, running or bearing weight on your knees, it could be:

  • Arthritis
  • Ruptured tendons and ligaments, including the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and posterior cruciate ligament
  • Cartilage problems and meniscus injuries
  • Dislocations or fractures

Mercyhealth orthopedic specialists offer a range of treatments from conservative (physical therapy, orthopedic devices, injection therapies) to surgical options:

  • Partial knee replacement surgery
  • Total knee replacement surgery
  • Knee revision surgery
  • Knee osteotomy
  • Arthroscopic surgery

Contact a Mercyhealth orthopedic surgeon to learn more about knee surgery or therapy options.
