Experience Revolutionary Knee Recovery
Knee pain is a common issue that afflicts people of all ages. Pain in the knee may be indicative of a current or prior injury including ligament damage or torn cartilage. Certain medical conditions may also be responsible for knee pain, including arthritis, gout and bacterial infections. While minor pain may only require certain self-care methods prescribed by your physician, some more serious issues may involve surgical care in order to relieve the condition.
Primary Knee Procedures
Scope (Arthritis & Meniscus). Scoping involves using a small viewing instrument to observe the affected area and achieve a proper diagnosis. In most cases patients are able to go home the very same day as the procedure.
Total Knee Replacement (Knee Arthroplasty) (Minimally Invasive). Total knee replacement is a minimally invasive procedure that can help relieve pain while restoring the joint’s full functionality.
Revision Total Knee Replacement (Redo). Over time, a knee replacement can wear down and require further attention. In these cases a revision total knee replacement takes place where your surgeon will repair or replace parts of the original prosthetic in order to relieve your pain.
Unicompartmental (Partial) Knee Replacement An alternative to total knee replacement, unicompartmental knee replacement involves partially resurfacing the knee with the use of small incisions. This typically leads to quicker recovery times and less time spent in the hospital for postoperative recovery.
Minimally Invasive Total Knee Replacement Using small incisions and special tools, minimally invasive total knee replacement involves removing damaged bone and replacing it with metal components to resurface the knee.
Osteotomy of the Knee (HTO) Also known as high tibial osteotomy, an HTO is a surgical procedure that involves the realignment of the knee joints.
Hip Impingement Also known as femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) occurs when the femoral head pinches up against the acetabulum. Treatment can include non-surgical or surgical options depending on diagnosis and evaluation during your visit.
Dr. Matthys did a Meniscus repair and debridement on my knee a week ago. Couldn’t be happier with results and his very friendly and efficient staff. Highly recommend.
