Who is a knee specialist?
While your primary care physician may be able to provide you with an initial diagnosis for your knee pain, a knee specialist can offer a wider range of treatment options and more in-depth understanding of your condition. Orthopedic doctors have an exceptional understanding of how the knee works. They have specialized in the treatment of many joint conditions and can provide care for injuries or degenerative conditions that your PCP may not fully understand or have the resources to address.
What is the educational training of a knee specialist?
A knee specialist is a highly trained doctor who has undergone extensive education in the function of the musculoskeletal system. After completing their bachelor’s level education, an orthopedic doctor will need to complete another 4 years of education in medical school. For orthopedic surgeons, another 4-5 years will be spent in residency at a hospital. Orthopedic surgeons have a deep and comprehensive understanding of the knee joint and how to support its health because of the many years of education and training they have undergone.
What conditions does a knee specialist treat?
A knee specialist can provide diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of issues that patients with knee pain may be dealing with. Some of the most common conditions that an orthopedic knee specialist will provide care for include ligament injuries including ACL tears, dislocations and fractures, arthritis, meniscal tears, and many others. If you have chronic pain or inflammation in one or both of your knees, an orthopedic specialist can identify the cause and help you understand your options for effective treatment.
