Our Approach to Knee Treatment and Recovery

At The Orthopedic Clinic, we believe that surgery can be an effective option, but needs to be agreed upon by the physician and patient after other treatments haven’t helped. If the physician and patient agree on surgery, we provide innovative, minimally invasive surgical procedures for the knee. These treatments typically allow for faster recovery, less pain, and less time spent in the hospital. They include:

  • Partial and total knee replacement surgery
  • Knee arthroscopic surgery
  • Torn meniscus repair
  • Cartilage restoration techniques
  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) repair
  • Complex multi-ligament repair and reconstruction
  • Medial patellofemoral ligament reconstruction

Why You Shouldn’t Ignore Knee Pain

The knee is one of the most complex joints in the body. It bears the weight of the upper body and absorbs shock carried upward through the feet when walking or running. The knee connects the two longest mechanical levers in the human body: the thigh and lower leg. Because of this, substantial forces put pressure on and around the knee joint.

The strength of the knee depends on the tendons and ligaments that connect the tibia, femur, and patella bones in the knee. A knee injury can hinder everything an individual does. It’s the largest joint in the body and is important for daily activities. Carrying any weight, even just body weight, can be increasingly difficult with an injured knee.

Knee Treatments and Procedures

Knee Reconstruction Surgery Florida

We routinely perform several knee treatments at The Orthopedic Clinic. The most common include:

Total Knee Replacement

We remove all of the damaged cartilage and a small amount of bone around the joint. Then we replace the removed cartilage and bone with metal components to recreate the surface of the joints and insert a spacer. The advantages of our approach include:

  • Improved mobility
  • Less time spent in the hospital
  • May be performed as an outpatient procedure

Partial Knee Replacement

In unicompartmental knee replacement (also called “partial” knee replacement), only a portion of the knee is resurfaced. This procedure is an alternative to total knee replacement for patients whose condition is limited to part of the knee. The advantages of our approach include:

  • Improved mobility
  • Less time spent in the hospital
  • 99% are performed as an outpatient procedure

Knee Arthroscopy Surgery

We make a small incision around the joints to diagnose and treat the injury. This is a minimally invasive procedure we have significant experience with. The advantages of our approach include:

Torn Meniscus Repair

We perform this procedure during a knee arthroscopy. This is a minimally invasive procedure we have significant experience with. The advantages of our approach include:

Cartilage Restoration Techniques

We repair or replace large pieces of cartilage the patient has lost. We can use the Osteoarticular Transfer System (OATS) to transplant bone and cartilage from a donor into the defect. These have positive outcomes when caught early.

Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Surgery

We remove the torn ligament and replace it with a piece of tendon from another part of your knee or from a deceased donor. We perform this surgery as an outpatient procedure through small incisions around your knee joint. The advantages of our approach include:

  • Lower chance of bleeding and infection
  • Faster recovery
  • On-site post-surgery physical therapy
  • Physical therapists who work closely with the surgeon
  • Regional anesthesia for less pain
  • Nerve block catheters for less post-procedure pain

Complex Multi-Ligament Repairs and Reconstructions

We use an individualized treatment plan based on your needs and your body to successfully repair or reconstruct multiple ligament knee injuries. These often include Lateral Cruciate Ligaments (LCL), Medial Cruciate Ligaments (MCL), Anterior Cruciate Ligaments (ACL), quadricep tendons, and patella tendons.

Medial Patellofemoral Ligament Reconstruction (MPFL)

We can perform this during a knee arthroscopy. It’s common for patients with a chronically dislocated kneecap. The surgeon replaces the torn ligament with a tendon from the hamstring or donor tissue.

Outpatient/Same-Day Knee Replacement

Some full or partial knee replacements can be performed as an ambulatory or one-day surgery. While almost all of our partial knee replacements are outpatient procedures, our total knee replacement surgery is dependent on a variety of conditions. For the best chance of receiving a total knee replacement as an outpatient surgery, certain conditions must be met — including:

  • Ability to lift yourself
  • Low procedure risks
  • Clean bill of health
  • Minimal risks within your family history
  • Approval by your doctor and surgeon

If your doctor determines you can have knee replacement surgery as an outpatient procedure, then your rate of recovery increases slightly. Patients who undergo ambulatory surgery often have fewer risks of infection, quicker recovery time, and an overall better patient experience. That’s because outpatient surgery is often more convenient than staying overnight. To determine if outpatient or same-day knee replacement is right for you, talk to your doctor.
