Hip & Knee

Advanced Bone & Joint

Your hips and knees support your full body weight while allowing for a wide range of motion, making them susceptible to injury and arthritis. There are many types of hip and knee problems that can affect your life. Knee arthritis can make it very difficult to get around and enjoy the activities you usually do. When you are hurt, getting proper treatment is key to restoring your full range of movement and quality of life.

Osteoarthritis commonly affects the hip and knee joints. With this type of arthritis, the cartilage that lines the joints slowly disintegrates and the bones begin to rub together. This causes pain, swelling, and stiffness in the joint. Osteoarthritis typically affects people in their senior years, as well as physically active middle-aged adults and athletes.

Osteoporosis is also common, which can increase the risk of hip fracture due to a fall. Usually associated with aging, osteoporosis is a loss of bone density that makes your bones weaker and more susceptible to fractures.
