Excellence in Knee Care: What to Expect

At Advanced Center for Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, our knee doctors strive to provide the best knee care available in northwest Kentucky.

Our knee experts have extensive knowledge about the knee as well as the different types of knee conditions and injuries patients may experience. They also understand that each patient is unique. That’s why they are committed to taking a patient-centered approach to care to provide each patient with the best treatment solution. 

When developing a personalized treatment plan, our knee doctors will first recommend any applicable conservative treatment options. These nonsurgical treatments may include receiving physical therapy from a physical therapist, taking over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication, or wearing a brace. Many times, these measures can bring about gradual improvements that can greatly reduce or eliminate the knee pain you are experiencing.

However, if nonoperative care is not effective or becomes less effective over time, our knee surgeons will discuss your surgical options and help you determine which knee surgery is right for you. Rest assured that our surgeons not only have the expertise and exceptional skills needed to perform the required knee surgery, but they also have access to state-of-the-art surgical equipment, which helps to ensure the best outcomes possible.

If our surgeons believe that a certain knee surgery, such as ligament reconstruction or minimally invasive knee replacement, is the best option for your injury or condition, they will educate you on the full process and the steps involved in your recovery as well as answer any questions you may have.
