Knee Surgery and Other Treatment Options for Patients in Hampton, Newport News, Williamsburg, VA & the Surrounding Areas
Knee surgery is sometimes the best option for addressing severe knee pain and advanced-stage osteoarthritis of the knee. However, a decision to undergo knee surgery is best made only after exploring all available treatment options. For expert guidance and advice, patients in the Hampton, Newport News, and Williamsburg, Virginia areas can consult with the joint specialists at Tidewater Orthopaedics, the largest independent orthopaedic practice on the Peninsula.
Many people find that they are able to delay or avoid the need for knee surgery by effectively managing their knee pain through conservative measures recommended by the physicians at Tidewater Orthopaedics, such as:
- Pain relievers
- Anti-inflammatory medications
- Restricted activity
- Weight loss
However, knee surgery can sometimes restore a level of knee function and allow some patients to return to the activities they love. For instance, at Tidewater Orthopaedics, our fellowship-trained knee surgeons offer minimally invasive full and partial knee replacements using an advanced robotic-assisted and computer-assisted technology, which facilitates highly precise results. The goal is to straighten the leg with a high level of accuracy such that an imaginary line that spans from the center of the hip to the center of the ankle passes directly through the center of the knee.
The prospect of surgical intervention to address joint pain is understandably daunting to some people. This is all the more reason to choose wisely when considering the surgeon to whom you will entrust your care. At Tidewater Orthopaedics, our surgeons perform fully customized knee surgery to meet the individual needs of each patient. The knowledge, training and expertise of these subspecialists – combined with the unique hospital in which they practice and our state-of-the-art physical therapy department – create a patient experience that is truly second to none.
