Hip & Knee
Thanks to significant medical advances, most hip and knee problems can now be treated without surgery. When possible, Mercy Health orthopaedists work to relieve symptoms with a combination of physical therapy, medication, injections, bracing and activity modification.
When surgery is needed, a minimally invasive approach, using tiny cuts instead of extensive incisions, is often performed. These procedures typically result in less pain and a faster recovery. Your surgeon will determine the best procedure to fit your specific injury.
Some of the hip & knee conditions treated by the experts at Mercy Health include:
- Patellofemoral pain syndrome
- Fractures and dislocations
- Meniscus, tendon and ligament tears
- Femoroacetabular impingement
- Arthroscopy (specific to the knee)
- Fracture fixation
- Ligament reconstruction
