The Sharp Experience

I believe patients deserve orthopedic care that is customized.



For many patients, knee pain from injury or disease does not have to equal total joint replacement. In modern orthopaedic practice, there are a wide variety of joint-sparing surgical options for almost any knee problem. Such joint-sparing treatments may be easily understood according to the "4Rs": Remove, Realign, Repair or Resurface. No matter how much medicine and technology advance, these are the four basic surgical tactics to treat any knee problem. Could you benefit from one of these procedures?

When considering a knee surgery, it is important to remember that there are few absolute rules to dictate which of the 4Rs might be best for you. Your age, overall health, activity level and even gender are important considerations. Some knee conditions may benefit from one, two or even three of the 4Rs. For this reason, it is vitally important that your orthopaedic surgeon not only diagnose your knee problem, but that the surgeon understands your lifestyle and expectations before recommending a specific surgery.
