Our sports medicine and orthopedic doctors will create a comprehensive treatment plan that may include medication and rehabilitation, as well as recommendations on how to avoid activities that put stress on the front of your knee. In rare cases, we may recommend surgery.

Overview

We may begin your treatment with anti-inflammatory medicine to ease your pain and physical therapy to stretch and strengthen the muscles that support your knee. Our doctors may also suggest rest, heat, topical rubs or cortisone injections, and may help you develop a weight-loss plan if necessary. In rare cases, our orthopedic surgeons may recommend you have arthroscopic surgery or have your kneecap replaced.
