Knee replacement surgery is one of the most common orthopedic procedures performed each year, and it’s not surprising why. As the largest joint in your body and one with load-bearing responsibilities, the knee can endure quite a bit of wear and tear over the years. This joint is prone to a number of injuries that can cause pain and mobility issues. If your knee symptoms are interfering with your everyday activities or have not improved with conservative treatments, knee replacement surgery may be the right treatment option for you. Minimally invasive knee surgery is available to residents of Chapel Hill at North Carolina Orthopaedic Clinic.
Knee Surgery from Experienced and Caring Orthopedic Surgeons
As a community-based clinic that takes a patient-centered approach to treatment, North Carolina Orthopaedic Clinic is your source for the dedicated knee care you require. We can help determine if knee replacement surgery is the right option for you, and if so, which kind of procedure may best produce the relief you seek. Our replacement procedures include:
- Total knee replacement – If there is widespread damage to the knee joint, a total replacement may be recommended to alleviate your symptoms.
- Partial knee replacement – If damage to the joint is localized to one side of the knee, a less invasive partial replacement may an option.
Additionally, we offer knee arthroscopy, which is a minimally invasive procedure that can treat minor injuries without replacing part or all of the joint.
