Hip and Knee Conditions

As one of the largest total joint programs in Kentucky, we treat many kinds of hip and knee problems.

  • Knee conditions

    Knee arthritis

    This type of osteoarthritis usually starts in the inside (medial) part of the knee, which bears the most weight. Risk factors include obesity (which puts stress on the knees) and severe injury (such as those from sports).

    Failed partial or total knee replacement revision

    Previous implants can fail, wear out or become infected. Our orthopaedic surgeons are experts in joint revision surgery, which can ease pain or problems from previous surgeries.

    Meniscus tear

    This injury to the connective tissue in the knee makes up about one-third of all sports injuries. Left untreated, a torn meniscus can lead to chronic pain and a higher risk of osteoarthritis. Learn more about meniscus tear treatment.
