The knee is one of the most complex joints in the human body. A healthy knee enables us to run, walk, squat, and move pain-free. However, when degeneration or injury disturbs the normal functioning of the knee, it can result in pain, loss of mobility, and difficulty with activities of daily living.
Whether you’re a professional athlete or an active individual, at CurPoint Orthopedic in Seattle, you’ll find personalized care for all knee-related conditions and injuries.
Because conservative treatment options can be effective at treating many knee-related conditions, CurPoint explores nonsurgical treatment options such as physical therapy, corticosteroid injections, platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy, and/or stem cell therapy whenever possible.
But for those suffering from severe pain, stiffness, crunching, locking and popping, surgery can be necessary. In such cases we offer the latest, state-of-the-art procedures including arthroscopic ACL repair surgery, cartilage repair/transplantation which allow us to provide better outcomes and, in many cases, faster recovery times.
Some of the most common shoulder conditions we treat include:
- Anterior cruciate ligament tears (ACL tears)
- Cartilage injury
- Chondromalacia (Runner’s Knee)
- Collateral ligament tears (MCL and LCL)
