Solutions To Your Knee Pain
Expert Care In Richmond, VA
Whether you play competitive sports or walk or run for exercise, healthy joints are important, especially weight-bearing joints like the knees. The knee is a hinge joint that consists of ligaments, tendons, cartilage, bursae, bone, synovial membrane and muscles. All of these components work together to support the body during times of strenuous physical activity, and even while simply standing still.
This advanced surgical procedure incorporates the reattachment of the anterior cruciate ligament to the femur bone while incorporating natural growth factors and collagen-coated suture tape to promote healing and provide support during the healing process.
A torn ACL is a debilitating injury that usually requires arthroscopic surgery to repair. Using minimally invasive procedures and natural growth factors to enhance the body’s own capacity to heal, most patients will be able to achieve full function of the knee after the procedure.
Outpatient Knee Replacement
Knee replacement is a surgical procedure used as knee arthritis treatment. It improves a patient’s quality of life when the joint has been damaged by arthritis. G2 Orthopedics and Sports Medicine offers outpatient knee replacement surgery for patients who meet the candidacy requirements.
The meniscus is the shock absorber for the knee joint that helps distribute the body’s weight and keep the bones from rubbing together. A torn meniscus is repaired successfully through minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery.
Chondromalacia and Cartilage Damage
Knee cartilage damage (known as chondromalacia) can occur suddenly from an injury or over a period of years from overuse. The damaged cartilage restricts the knee’s mobility, causing significant pain. If left untreated, it can worsen and eventually become knee arthritis.
Kneecap Pain and Dislocation
Cartilage damage under the kneecap is often due to injury or overuse. Symptoms include pain, swelling, catching, locking or giving way of the knee. Conservative measures are often used to treat this condition.
