    Our Comprehensive Approach to Knee Pain

    Your knee is one of the most complex joints in the body, but we make treatment simple. If you hurt your knee and want to avoid the emergency room, you can visit one of our Urgent Care Centers to get an immediate diagnosis and begin treatment. Many injuries can be treated easily, such as with bracing and rehabilitation exercises. If you need further testing or referral to one of our orthopaedic knee surgeons or sports medicine specialists, we’re here to make the process smooth and get you the care you need.

    Nonsurgical options for treatment can include immobilization (a brace or cast), physical therapy, and over-the-counter medicines (like ibuprofen) to bring down pain and swelling. If your injury is more severe, like an ACL tear, we perform minimally invasive surgery that helps you return home in less pain and begin recovery quicker. Other knee conditions may require open surgery performed by one of our board-certified, fellowship trained knee specialists.

    If an injury or degenerative condition to your knee joint is causing pain and restricting movement, total joint replacement can restore function and help you return to a pain-free life. Our fellowship-trained surgeons specialize in joint replacement surgery and reconstruction procedures that replace worn-out knees with specially engineered implants.

    Our knee surgeons are not only the best in Connecticut, but nationally recognized in innovative, patient-focused knee care. You can count on us to find what’s most beneficial and convenient for you.
