Knee Replacement

Knee pain is as common, if not more common, than hip problems in middle-aged America. Arthritis-related knee pain can be nagging and frustrating, interfering with an active lifestyle. Like with hip treatments, there are conservative treatments such as medication and cortisone injections that help many. Eventually, knee replacement surgery may be your best option. Turn to the knee replacement specialists at Franciscan Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, located throughout the Puget Sound region of Washington.
