Knee Pain

Whether you are living with arthritis, have led a physically active life or sustained a lasting injury, you may experience chronic pain in one of the most important joints in the body — the knee. When your knee is not functioning properly, your ability to move and your quality of life may suffer.

Knee specialists with UK Orthopaedic Surgery & Sports Medicine are trained to provide a variety of surgical and nonsurgical treatments to ease knee pain and improve mobility.
