Our team of sports medicine and orthopedic doctors will thoroughly assess the cause and extent of your condition. Your treatment may include rest, ice, physical therapy or minimally invasive surgery.

Overview

Many common knee problems can be treated without surgery. Our doctors and physical therapists may prescribe muscle strengthening exercises or a special brace to control how your kneecap moves. If you have severe pain or repeated dislocations, our orthopedic surgeons may recommend arthroscopic surgery to clean injured tissue from your knee, or to adjust your tendons to realign your patella.
