Knee Surgery Southlake
When facing knee surgery, selecting your orthopedic surgeon is important. You want to find a knee specialist who has the experience and training to properly diagnose and surgically treat your knee pain or knee injury. Our Southlake orthopedic surgeon can quickly and properly evaluate, diagnose and treat your knee with the latest medical techniques at Advanced Spine & Orthopedics.
Arthroscopic Knee Surgery
One of the more exciting surgical advances is arthroscopic knee surgery. It is now a common procedure that uses a small incision to allow a miniature camera to be inserted into the knee joint area. The camera gives our orthopedic knee specialist a clear view of the knee injury such as a torn ACL, arthritis and meniscus tears. In most cases, our orthopedic knee specialist will allow you to go home on the day of the surgery.
A torn ACL will cause the knee to become very unstable. Using arthroscopic surgery, the knee injury is corrected by using a graft to replace the torn ligament or reattaching your ligament that simply tore away from the bone. Our orthopedic knee specialist has performed many of these surgeries and will provide you with the best care.
Meniscus Tear Surgery
The largest cartilage pad in the knee that functions as both a cushion and stabilizer is the meniscus. Depending on the location and severity of the tear, surgery can be performed either using arthroscopic surgery or traditional open knee surgery. Our orthopedic knee specialist will base the decision on the results of a thorough examination.
Total Knee Arthroplasty
While completing total knee joint replacements, our goal is to enhance a patient's quality of life and relieve pain caused by late-state osteoarthritis and joint deterioration. During TKAs, the knee joint's artificial surfaces are replaced with highly durable metal or plastic materials. We recommend TKAs for patients who want greater mobility.
Total Knee Replacement
A total knee replacement involves alleviating pain and dysfunction by removing severely damaged or diseased knee joints. Useless or irreparable bone cartilage is taken away from the patient's thighs, shins, or kneecaps and replaced with safe-for-use artificial material. Patients experience enhanced knee stability and strength after they recover from their procedure.
