Knee Pain Overview Topic Guide
Knee Pain: Knee pain has a wide variety of causes and treatments. Home care for knee pain involves protecting the knee from further trauma, in addition to resting, icing, compressing, and elevating the knee. In order to diagnose knee pain, the physician may need to perform a physical exam, get an X-ray, CT scan, MRI, remove fluid, and/or perform blood tests or arthroscopy. Treatment of knee pain depends upon the cause of the knee pain.
Minimally Invasive Knee Replacement Minimally invasive knee replacement is surgery performed with smaller incisions, which reduces the trauma to the tissue, reduces pain, and shortens recovery time. Risks include nerve injury, blood clots, fracture, blood loss, infection after surgery, and improper placement of the components.
