Many knee injuries can be treated without surgery, though if you have a fracture or ligament tear, our orthopedic doctors may recommend minimally invasive surgery. Generally, we recommend you first rest, ice and elevate your injured knee.
Depending on the type and extent of your injury, our specialists may put you in a brace to support your knee and have you use crutches. We may prescribe anti-inflammatory medicine, as well as strengthening and stretching exercises. Our physical therapists may use ultrasound or massage to heal a torn ligament. If you need surgery, we may do it arthroscopically to minimize your pain and recovery time.
