Standing, walking, and various activities demand a lot from your knees. When you have chronic pain in your knees, it can limit your lifestyle and keep you from doing the things you enjoy. This pain is often rooted in damage to the soft tissues and even the bones that form your knee joint as the result of an injury or years of wear and tear with conditions like osteoarthritis.
The most viable treatment option for you will depend on the location and extent of damage in your knee. For certain cases, these options include a knee resurfacing procedure.
With knee resurfacing, we are able to preserve the great majority of your knee tissue. This includes preservation of the posterior cruciate ligament and the collateral ligaments to give your resurfaced knee the most natural feel possible postoperatively. Only minimal bone removal is necessary to complete the knee resurfacing procedure.
Postoperative therapy begins immediately after surgery with walking. Full weight bearing is allowed the day of surgery. We are fortunate to be able to provide the knee resurfacing at the number one rated hospital in the United States for this type of procedure, The Orthopaedic Hospital of Wisconsin.
We expect that after your knee resurfacing, you will generally be able to avoid further surgery in that knee for 20 to 30 years.
We invite you to visit with us in the office to see what we can accomplish together to help resolve your knee pain on a more permanent basis.
