Orthopedic Knee Surgery in Wayne & Paramus, NJKnee conditions can effect cartilage, ligaments, bone, tendons and muscles, making the process of walking and running difficult and uncomfortable. We have the tools and expertise to diagnose and treat your discomfort and pain.
Various Conditions of the Knee
We treat a number of common knee conditions:
Jumper’s knee involves inflammation of the tendon at the front of the knee that connects the patella and the tibia. This issue generally develops as an overuse injury from activities that involve running, jumping, and loading the knee. Patients will feel soreness directly over the tendon and may feel pain with squatting, running, and any kind of explosive knee movements. Rest is a very important part of recovery from patellar tendonitis. Anti-inflammatory medications can be helpful for pain relief, but should not be taken long term. A focused physical therapy can be very beneficial in the rehabilitation process as well.
As our patient, you will have an in-depth consultation with one of our doctors. We will create an individualized treatment plan together, tailored to your problem and lifestyle. Our doctors prefer non-invasive treatments whenever possible, including physical therapy and/or injections. If your problem ultimately does require surgery, our doctors prefer the least invasive surgical techniques possible. Our goals are the same as yours: to get you back to living your best life, pain free.
