If you’re experiencing joint or musculoskeletal pain that is interfering with your daily life, the experts at CORE can help you get better. Arthritis care includes treatments for the hip, knee and other joints. A common treatment for arthritis conditions of these joints is full or partial joint replacement.
How do you know if you should be seen by a rheumatologist or an orthopedic specialist? If you are experiencing pain in the joints that gradually worsens with movement or weight bearing, you may need orthopedic care. Moderate to severe arthritis in the knee or hip would be best treated by an orthopedic specialist, as joint replacement may be necessary.
We offer viscosupplementation therapy, which is a treatment designed to relieve knee pain associated with osteoarthritis or degenerative joint disease. It involves the injection of a gel-like fluid called hyaluronic acid (HA) into your joint to act as both a lubricant and shock absorber in the synovial fluid. This therapy results in decreased inflammation and pain which can improve mobility and provide a higher and more comfortable level of activity.
Arthroscopic surgery is a type of minimally invasive surgical procedure where a skilled surgeon makes a small incision into the body, then uses a microscopic camera to view the inside of the joint, allowing the surgeon to accurately diagnose and correct the problem all in one procedure.
At CORE, our surgeons have performed thousands of successful arthroscopic procedures on patients’ hip, knees, shoulders, elbows, ankles or wrists to help alleviate pain from arthritis, inflammation, cartilage tears, dislocations, carpal tunnel syndrome and more. Arthroscopic surgery is less invasive than traditional orthopedic surgeries, making recovery and rehabilitation times faster.
When cartilage is damaged, you may develop painful symptoms keeping you from enjoying every day life. Cartilage restoration surgeries may be a good option to help you get back to doing the things you love.
