How We Treat Knee Injuries
When you turn to North Carolina Orthopaedic Clinic for treatment of a knee injury—or any other orthopedic condition—you can expect to receive a highly personalized care experience. Although our team includes skilled orthopedic knee surgeons, we don’t push patients into undergoing surgery. Instead, we recommend conservative treatment methods whenever possible. For a knee injury, this might involve:
- Taking pain medication
- Icing the knee or applying a heat pack
- Wearing a brace or a compression bandage
- Periodically resting the joint
While conservative techniques like these provide relief to many patients, surgery is necessary in some cases. If it turns out that you need surgery to treat your knee injury, we’ll walk you through all of the options available to you, explaining the benefits of each. Our orthopedic knee surgeons are able to perform many procedures using a minimally invasive approach—which shortens recovery times and lessens the risk of complications—and we’ll let you know if that’s a possibility for your specific circumstances.
