People are living longer, more active lives, and that means knees frequently get worn out. The knee acts like a hinge between your thigh and shin. The joint is padded with a cushion of thick cartilage that gets worn down over time, resulting in knee pain and arthritis as the bones rub together. When this happens, it is usually time for a knee replacement surgery.
There are many other types of knee injuries as well, and our orthopedic surgeons are here to help with whatever knee troubles ail you.
