Arthroscopic Knee Care & Surgery
Joint deterioration and knee pain can affect every aspect of a person’s life. At Saint Francis Hospital-Memphis, our orthopedic specialists work to help fix and manage your knee problems. Whether it’s caused by an injury or a degenerative bone disease like osteoarthritis, we help you through medication, physical therapy, rehabilitation and in some cases, knee surgery or replacement.
Saint Francis Hospital-Memphis is the first in Memphis to offer the MAKOplasty® partial knee resurfacing technology. Should you need a knee replacement, which replaces the cartilage on the ends of the bones, our expert team performs those as well. Knee replacement implants are designed to create a new, smoothly functioning joint that prevents painful bone-on-bone contact. Your surgeon may elect to replace all or part of your knee, depending on your condition.
The most common reasons for knee replacement surgery are:
- Osteoarthritis, a loss of joint cartilage that limits movement, causes pain and inhibits daily activity
- Other forms of arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis
- Damage to the knee, such as fractures, torn cartilage and/or torn ligaments
- Degenerative joint disease
