Why choose Ochsner Health for knee pain care and knee replacement surgery?
Every time you go for a walk after dinner, play with your grandchildren in the park, hike a trail or climb stairs, your knees are hard at work. You depend on your knees for daily activities and the pursuits that make life meaningful. Chronic knee pain, however, can stand in the way of an active, fulfilling life. At Ochsner, we provide comprehensive care for knee pain, including knee replacement surgery, for patients from Louisiana, Mississippi and beyond who are ready to stop letting discomfort limit them.
You may think surgery is the only solution for chronic knee pain, but that’s not the case at all. Our multidisciplinary team of experts will work with you to identify your most appropriate treatment. For many people, conservative therapies, such as taking anti-inflammatory medication or working with a physical therapist, are effective. Knee replacement surgery, also called knee arthroplasty, may be appropriate if nonsurgical treatments don’t work for you. Our team includes four fellowship-trained surgeons who use the most up-to-date surgical techniques to reduce postoperative pain and help patients to a fast recovery.
