Many individuals experience knee injuries at some point in their lives.

If you recently injured your knee or are experiencing any type of knee pain, the sports medicine physicians at North Carolina Orthopaedic Clinic in Durham can help. Our team of orthopedic surgeons is highly experienced in diagnosing and treating the various conditions that can affect the knee.

Common Knee Conditions We Diagnose

Whether you’ve had mild knee pain for years or recently endured a knee injury, it’s important to consult with a physician to determine the cause of your pain so that it can be addressed appropriately. You should also meet with a physician if you have limited range of motion or notice any swelling in the knee area. These symptoms commonly occur as a result of:

  • Bone fractures in or near the knee
  • Meniscus injuries and other cartilage tears
  • Tendon tears, including patellar and quadriceps tears
  • Ligament injuries, including ACL, MCL, and PCL tears
