Orthopedic Knee Surgery

Orthopedic Knee Surgery

Restore Range of Motion & Quality of Life

Knee pain comes in many different forms. Often, knee pain can be treated with rest, medicine, or physical therapy. Other times, it’s more severe and requires surgical intervention.

Surgeons are able to perform many different knee surgeries for a variety of injuries and conditions. If you’re in knee pain, orthopedic knee surgery may be the best treatment for regaining the use of your knee.

Contact iRISE Spine and Joint today to schedule an appointment and find out what may work best for your unique needs.

What Are the Different Types of Knee Surgery?

  • Meniscus repair: The menisci are pieces of cartilage in the knee that provide a cushion between the thigh and shin bone. Forceful twisting of the knee can cause the menisci to tear. Surgery can repair the damaged meniscus tissue to restore the use of your knee.
  • ACL reconstruction: A motion that forces your knee in the wrong direction can tear the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in the knee. This can affect your stability, which is an issue for people who are physically active. Surgery can repair this damaged ligament.
  • Lateral release: An injury or condition can cause the kneecap to dislocate, which is painful and affects your mobility. Lateral release surgery loosens the ligaments in the knee to help realign the kneecap.
  • Total knee replacement: The bones or cartilage in your knee can become so damaged that they are beyond repair and use. Total knee replacement surgery replaces the damaged bone and cartilage with an artificial joint, so you can regain the use of your knee and leg.

Many of these procedures are arthroscopic, which means they’re performed with the use of a small tube with a camera on the end. This camera provides the surgeon with a view of the operation that eliminates the need for large incisions that were necessary for this view in the past.

Not all knee operations are arthroscopic, but your surgery will likely use arthroscopic surgery when available because of its benefits, including:

  • Small incisions
  • Less blood loss
  • Faster recovery time
  • Less pain
  • Less scar tissue

Is Knee Surgery Risky?

Our surgeons at iRISE Spine and Joint are highly trained and experienced. They take special care to minimize risks during surgical procedures. That being said, surgery always comes with risks.

Although complications are rare in some knee surgeries, they can include:

  • Infection
  • Blood loss
  • Blood clotting
  • Nerve damage
  • Soft tissue damage
  • Artificial joint failure

Your surgeon will carefully examine the condition of your knee to determine if surgery is a good option. He or she will consider your medical history, personal fitness, and other factors as well when making this decision.

Our orthopedic knee surgeons are ready at multiple locations to help improve the quality of your knee and your life. If you’re suffering from knee pain, talk to one of our team members today to find out how surgery can help.
