  • If you live in Saratoga Springs and believe
    that you might need knee surgery, there are a few
    things you should do to determine the right
    course of action. Surgery might not even be the
    best approach for your situation. Here are the
    best things to do if you are experiencing pain or
    have suffered a knee injury

  • First and foremost, contact an orthopedic
    physician in Saratoga Springs for an appointment.
    They will be able to help you determine exactly
    what is wrong with your knee. These types of
    injuries can be debilitating because of how much
    you use your legs and knees, so the sooner that
    you can get into the doctor, the sooner you will
    find a solution and be on the road to feeling
    back to normal.

  • The right doctor will try every option before
    resorting to surgery to fix the issue. They
    should try to use minimally invasive treatments
    to see if it resolves the pain and problem. Not
    every knee injury warrants surgery anyway.
    Orthopedic physicians can even help you if you
    just have pain while exercising, have popping or
    locking, or receive any cuts or lacerations. They
    can also help with tears, cysts, bruises, and
    tendonitis, among other things. Some of their
    approaches may include oral medication,
    injections, exercises, therapy, or external
    supports that help function and relieve the pain
    in your knee.

  • Sometimes MRIs are suggested by orthopedic
    doctors, but there are some who try bedside
    musculoskeletal ultrasounds to correctly diagnose
    what is wrong on your first visit. This will
    allow you to know what the issues are without
    needing to get an MRI, which can be intimidating
    and expensive.

  • Although knee surgery is not always the best
    solution, sometimes it might be. Often with
    meniscus and ACL tears, the doctor in Saratoga
    Springs might insist that surgery is the best
    option to get you feeling back to normal. If this
    is the case, they will help you prepare for
    surgery in the best ways possible, and after
    surgery, they will help you recover or send you
    where you can receive the rehabilitation that you

  • Knee injuries are never fun, so acting quickly
    can make or break your experience. The sooner you
    can receive help with your pain and issues, the
    sooner you can determine the cause and what the
    problem is. The sooner you can receive a
    diagnosis for the issue from an orthopedic doctor
    in Saratoga Springs, the sooner you can receive
    the treatment or help you need to reduce pain and
    regain strength and mobility.
