Knee

Pain

The knee is one of the largest joints in the body and is often put under excessive strain. Because of this, knee injuries are some of the most common joint problems treated. The specialists at Capital Orthopaedics offer conservative treatments or surgical procedures – such as minimally invasive knee arthroscopy, knee cartilage repair and knee replacement. These methods are used to treat knee pain and lack of mobility caused by high-intensity activities, overuse and disease.

Common Sources of Pain
