When to see a knee specialist
Knee pain can be debilitating, affecting your ability to do everyday activities. It can be caused by overuse, traumatic injury, or a degenerative condition, such as arthritis. Patients with knee problems report symptoms such as:
- Unstable joint that is not able to support your weight when you walk or stand
- Numbness or pain in knee joint
- Popping or crunching sounds
- Swelling and stiffness
- Pain when extending leg
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it may be time to see one of our orthopedic surgeons. Treatment will first be approached from a nonsurgical standpoint. Should pain reach the point of disability for a patient and nonsurgical treatment is no longer effective, your doctor may recommend surgery to help restore function. Together you will discuss if surgery is right for you.
