Knee pain is a common condition at any age. Injury, arthritis, osteoarthritis and bone spurs are among the common causes of knee pain. The exact location and severity of your pain may vary, depending on the cause.
More people with knee pain in Louisville and Southern Indiana choose Norton Orthopedic Institute for nonsurgical or surgical care than any other provider.
Treatment options range from physical therapy and medication to surgical repairs to partial or total knee replacement surgery. Our skilled providers will listen to you and use their experience to recommend the best solution.
Norton Orthopedic Institute surgeons are leaders in the use of robotics that help your surgeon implant the parts of your new knee with superior precision. Placing the metal parts of the new joint and attaching them to your bone requires skill and planning to provide the best possible feel.
With advanced techniques that allow bone to grow into the new joint and precision placement, artificial knees are expected to last longer and allow a more natural feel when you pursue your favorite activities.
Seek treatment if you can’t walk or your knee feels unsteady, if you have swelling or redness, or if you have a recent injury to the knee area.
