Woodworth Orthopedics and Sports Medicine is a leader in minimally invasive techniques for knee surgery. The Henderson knee pain treatment
uses small incisions, customized instruments, and innovative imaging techniques. Many procedures may be performed with less pain and blood loss, and minimal scarring. The result is a more rapid recovery and higher patient satisfaction. The knee is a hinge joint between the femur (thighbone) and the tibia (shin) and is protected in the front by the patella. Cartilage on the ends of each bone cushions the joint while ligaments run along the sides and front of the knee connecting the primary bones together. Over time, the cartilage that cushions the joint can deteriorate causing pain and stiffness that comes when bones rub directly against each other. Patients frequently report that they originally hear a popping or clicking sound when pressure is applied to their knee and that as time progresses they begin to feel pain (or pressure) when walking or climbing/descending stairs.
Henderson knee pain treatments
address many conditions of the knee including arthritis, knee replacement, meniscus or ACL tears, bursitis, and tendonitis. Knee arthroscopy is one such surgery that is routinely performed with good outcomes using these minimally invasive techniques. With a minimally invasive approach, the surgery requires significantly less incision (usually three- to four-inch) and less muscle dissection since the procedure can be performed by separating the muscles and tendons rather than cutting them. Patients experience a shorter recovery time and shorter hospital stay as well as less blood loss. Dr. Woodworth is waiting for your call. It's up to you to take the first step so he can make it a pain-free one.
