Preservation of Your Knee

One of the best things you can do to treat your knee pain is to treat it early. Our team of nurses and orthopedic specialists have several nonsurgical treatment options available including anti-inflammatory medicine, ice, heat, and massage techniques. If caught early, we can treat your knee pain and preserve the joint preventing an immediate need for surgery.

Knee Surgery

If it is determined that surgery is needed, Fullerton Orthopedic offers several minimally invasive surgical procedures, as well as knee replacements. After your surgery, our comprehensive care plan will include physical therapy, pain management, rehabilitation services, or advanced imaging if needed.

Minimally Invasive Knee Scoping

If surgery is required, knee arthroscopy (knee scoping) may be an option for you. Knee scoping is one of the most frequently used procedures for the diagnosis and treatment of knee pain and injuries. A minor surgical procedure, patients who undergo knee scoping are typically able to return home the same day. As we work on a customized care plan for you, we will determine whether knee scoping is an option.

Knee Replacement Surgery

Severely damaged knee joints can mean a partial or complete knee replacement is necessary. We understand that patients may be nervous about surgical treatment, so our doctors and staff are here to educate and guide you through the process from consultation to surgery to rehabilitation. You can feel comfortable knowing you’re receiving high-quality treatment from doctors who care about your specific needs.
