Knee arthritis is a common and chronic condition that affects many individuals. Three types of knee arthritis exist- osteoarthritis (OA), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and posttraumatic arthritis. OA is most common in patients over 50 years old, while RA's cause is unknown. Posttraumatic arthritis develops after an accident or injury. An early diagnosis is key to effectively treating all types of knee arthritis. Our fellowship trained and board-certified specialists accurately diagnose OA, RA, and posttraumatic arthritis. Nonsurgical treatments such as medication, physical therapy, bracing, injections, and activity modification can help treat mild to moderate knee arthritis. However, surgical intervention might be necessary for severe cases. Knee arthroplasty is one of the most effective surgeries in orthopedics. Our team at OIBO provides personalized care to every patient, ensuring they receive the best possible treatment. Schedule your appointment via our contact page.
