Dayton, NV, Residents Can Turn to Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic for Skilled Knee Replacement Surgery
If you’ve been experiencing knee pain for some time now, you’ve probably wondered whether you require knee replacement surgery. We invite you to visit Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic to consult with one of our orthopedic specialists. We are pleased to offer this service to residents of Dayton, Nevada, and surrounding areas, and we can help you determine whether surgery is the right choice for you.
Knee replacement surgery is usually only recommended when the knee joint is so damaged — whether by injury or a chronic condition — that you experience pain and limited range of motion even when you’re sitting or lying down. Although osteoarthritis is the most common reason for knee replacement surgery, there are many conditions that can result in the need for a knee replacement, including the following:
- Avascular necrosis
- Bone dysplasia
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Traumatic arthritis
At our clinic, we generally recommend that patients try to relieve their symptoms using conservative methods before turning to surgery. For knee pain, this might include pain medication, application of heating pads and ice packs, and physical therapy. While conservative treatment works well for many people, however, sometimes it’s not enough. If that’s the case for you, and your knee pain is so severe that it’s interfering with your quality of life, you might require knee replacement surgery.
If knee replacement surgery is necessary for you, there’s no one better to turn to than the experienced surgeons at Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic. We offer both total and partial knee replacements, and we can help you determine which option is best for your specific needs. Our team includes surgeons, physical and occupational therapists, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners, all of whom will work together to handle your treatment from surgery all the way through rehabilitation.
