OhioHealth orthopedic specialists provide a full spectrum of care for knee conditions, including sports injuries and arthritis. We’re dedicated to finding the treatment options that work best for you and your goals. We offer non-surgical and surgical treatment options for knee pain to get you back to the activities you enjoy. Some of the advanced non-surgical treatment options we offer include physical therapy, platelet-rich plasma therapy and fluoroscopically-guided injections. If non-surgical efforts are exhausted without success, surgery may be needed to treat your knee condition. We have an expert team who can help.
Knee pain from old sports injuries was getting in the way of Mark’s professional painting job. Partial knee replacement helped him get back to work.
Whether you’re a professional athlete or weekend warrior, sports-related injuries can occur. Meniscus tears (damage to the cartilage “pads” in your knee joint) can often be repaired arthroscopically – through a scope inserted in a small incision – and have you home the same day of surgery. Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears are most commonly sustained during a sport where the knee is hyperextended and twisted upon impact. Your surgeon will talk to you about the different techniques to repair your ACL and determine the best option to get you back to activity as soon as possible.
In partial knee replacement (also called unicompartmental knee replacement), only a portion of the knee is resurfaced. OhioHealth is proud to offer robotic-assisted (MAKOplasty) partial knee replacement.
Our experts use 3-D computer mapping and an interactive robotic arm system to implant a partial artificial knee. The procedure is very accurate, allowing surgeons to remove only the part of your knee that has been damaged by disease. Your healthy tissue is not disturbed.
Benefits of MAKOplasty versus traditional knee replacement include:
During knee replacement surgery (also called knee arthroplasty) an orthopedic surgeon makes precise measurements and skillfully remove the diseased portions of your bone in order to shape the remaining bone to accommodate an artificial knee implant. The implant results in a highly realistic artificial joint.
OhioHealth has expert orthopedic surgeons trained in the use of minimally invasive techniques that can lead to quicker recovery times and less pain — allowing some total knee replacement patients to go home the same day of surgery!
Patients and their families are at the center of all we do. From helping you prepare for your knee surgery, to post-surgery rehab — our focus is on reducing your stress and getting back to the things you love.
Research shows that patients who received education about their procedure and recovery before having a knee replacement have better outcomes than those who don’t. Our Joint Class is available at no cost to you and your care giver. We want you to have the best experience and recovery possible. Ask your physician about signing up for a joint class.
We help athletes prevent injury and improve performance. Our experts use video analysis and other assessments to design an action plan based on your goals.
