Get relief from knee pain and swelling
Orthopedic surgeons and sports medicine doctors at Ascension sites of care specialize in treating knee pain and help improve your mobility.
Our orthopedic doctors specialize in treating knee pain and injuries. When your knees hurt from running or walking or you feel like your knee is giving out, talk to our orthopedic knee specialists. We provide thorough evaluations to help find the cause of your pain and offer treatment for all types of knee-related disorders. Our doctors and care teams listen to understand you and how your pain affects your daily life. Then, we work with you to create a care plan that’s right for you.
Your knee is a hinge joint, meaning your leg should bend one way. When there is damage to the knee joint, the upper and lower part of your leg may be affected too. This can increase pain and make it difficult to move. In older adults, falling is the leading cause of injury. In teens and active adults, sports-related injuries can damage the knee. Our doctors and orthopedic care teams offer surgical and non-surgical treatments for bone-on-bone joint pain, ACL tear, meniscus ligament strain, knee cap dislocation, cartilage damage and bone fracture.
If you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, go directly to the ER or call 911.
Age, arthritis and injury are all possible reasons for knee pain. If you are living with pain, our experienced orthopedic surgery specialists and care teams take the time to understand you and your joint pain. At many Ascension orthopedic sites of care, we offer certified joint replacement surgery with rehabilitation and recovery programs.
Getting the right care at the right time is critical for your health. If you’re looking for a second opinion from a knee specialist, we can help match you with the right orthopedic surgeon. Ask if a virtual visit is an option for your second opinion appointment.
As part of our knee replacement care, physical therapists and occupational therapists at Ascension rehabilitation sites of care provide personalized orthopedic rehabilitation. After your knee surgery, our care team provides therapy to help you get up and start walking soon after your surgery. At our outpatient physical therapy clinics, we deliver therapies to improve knee function, manage pain, strengthen leg muscles and help prevent reinjury.
