Knee Pain

Sign up to watch our free online seminar about knee pain and treatment options available.

Joint deterioration and knee pain can affect every aspect of a person’s life. At Saint Francis Healthcare, 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 Healthcare is the first in Memphis to offer Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery for partial and total knee replacements. 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
