Knee pain is a common complaint, especially as patients age. There are numerous potential causes of knee pain. These include: soft tissue inflammation around the knee, such as bursitis or tendinitis; knee arthritis, where there has been irreversible damage to the cartilage within the knee joint itself; tears of the meniscal cartilage (the cartilage between the femur and the tibia); loose bodies within the knee joint. Occasionally, knee pain will present as what is known as “referred” pain – this means that although the mind senses that the knee is hurting, the actual cause of the knee pain is not the knee itself. “Referred pain” can come from hip arthritis, as well as a pinched nerve in the lumbar spine or lower back area.

Dr. Davis routinely sees and evaluates patients with knee pain to first help them discover the source or cause of the pain and then to develop a treatment plan to address the knee problem and objectively alleviate the pain.

Knee replacement surgery is often recommended for patients with severe arthritis of the knee that has failed to respond to appropriate conservative or non-operative treatment. Dr. Davis routinely performs both total knee replacement surgery and partial knee replacement surgery. These procedures allow patients previously disabled by painful arthritis to restore their quality of life.

Arthroscopic Knee Surgery

Surgery is most often performed to address tears of the meniscus, but can also be used to treat torn ligaments…

Total Knee Replacement

In a total knee replacement surgery, the goal is to replace the damaged cartilage within the knee.

Anatomy of the Knee

The knee is the body’s largest joint. It’s the place where three bones meet: the tibia, the femur and the patella.

Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Injuries in Women

The anterior cruciate ligament, commonly called the ACL, is a thick, elastic band of tissue that runs from the bottom of the femur to the top of the tibia.

Avascular Necrosis (Osteonecrosis) of the Knee

This condition occurs when a bone’s normal blood supply is disrupted.

Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)

This condition is a blood clot that forms in a vein deep inside the body.

Anterior Cruciate Ligament
Tear (ACL Tear)

This condition is a fracture of a portion of the tibia, also called the shin bone, in the knee joint.

Fractures of the
Tibial Spine

This condition is a fracture of a portion of the tibia, also called the shin bone, in the knee joint.

Goosefoot (Pes Anserine)
Bursitis of the Knee

This condition is an inflammation of the pes anserine bursa, a fluid-filled sac between the tibia and the tendons of the hamstring muscle on the inner side of the knee.

Osgood-Schlatter Disease

This overuse injury is an inflammation that occurs at the point where the patellar tendon attaches to the tibia.

Osteoarthritis of the Knee

Osteoarthritis, also called degenerative arthritis, is a gradual breakdown of cartilage in the joints.
