Orthopedic Surgeon for Knee Pain in Buffalo, North Tonawanda, & Niagara Falls, NY
Knee pain can be especially debilitating, making it difficult to walk, run, or enjoy hobbies like gardening. Unfortunately, because the knee is such a complex and vital joint, it is vulnerable to a wide range of injuries. The precise cause of your pain will determine which treatment options are best for you.
Arthritis is a leading cause in knee cartilage damage. Over time, arthritis can lead to the thinning of knee cartilage, which results in significant pain and discomfort. When this happens, it is often necessary to undergo a knee replacement procedure, in which hard cartilage is replaced with an implant. This implant, made of plastic and metal, will restore the functionality of your knee and allow you to perform daily tasks with comfort and ease once again.
