Our Solutions

Knee pain can stem from many causes, including injuries and chronic conditions. Our experts will work with you to diagnose your condition and create an individualized treatment plan. We offer a range of knee pain treatments, from non-operative measures to pain management procedures to surgeries.

Our non-operative sports medicine specialists can offer many treatments. These include platelet-rich plasma, which uses injections of a patient’s own blood platelets to help with healing. They also offer viscosupplementation, often called gel shots. These involve injecting hyaluronic acid into the knee joint. In addition, our pain management specialists offer several minimally invasive interventional pain management procedures. Finally, our surgeries include knee arthroscopy and total knee replacement. Finally, our surgeries include knee arthroscopy, ACL reconstruction, meniscus repair and removal, and total knee replacement. Our expert care teams work together across disciplines to ensure they’re providing comprehensive care.
