Knee Pain

Treatments tailored to you

Knee pain can be disruptive to your everyday life. At Los Alamitos Medical Center, the orthopedic specialists use advanced technology and a patient-specific approach to treatments to ease your pain. Following are some advanced joint technologies that have improved the lives of patients with knee pain:

  • Robotically assisted minimally invasive arthroscopic procedures
  • Uni-condylar partial knee resurfacing
  • Gender-specific replacements

Common reasons for hip replacement surgery include:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis or other forms of arthritis including those that come from an injury
  • Damage such as fractures, cartilage tears and ligament tears

You and your orthopedic team can help determine if surgery is the best treatment option. We use many different approaches including medication, cortisone injections, and physical therapy to see if we can reduce or eliminate your pain without surgery.
