Knee Arthritis and Osteoarthritis Treatment
Inflammation or arthritis in the knee joint is a common issue, causing pain and mobility issues for people at various stages of life. The most common type of knee arthritis is osteoarthritis, occurring from wear and tear of the cartilage and components in the joint. At Jonathan Glashow, MD, Orthopedic Surgery & Sports Medicine, we offer many different levels of knee arthritis and osteoarthritis treatment that can reduce the pain and improve function at our facility in NYC.
Osteoarthritis affects millions of people, occurring in joints where injury, wear and friction are present. Knee joints are particularly vulnerable, due to the likelihood of injury and the stress put on these joints over the years. As cartilage wears thin, knee joints can become stiff, swollen and painful. There is no cure for any type of arthritis, but there are treatments that can slow deterioration, reduce pain and improve mobility.
Knee Arthritis Specialist
Our joint specialists, led by Dr. Jonathan Glashow, can offer effective options for knee arthritis and osteoarthritis treatment. We have interventional treatments, like steroid or non-steroid innovative injections, that can be used to address inflammation and reduce pain in the earlier stages of osteoarthritis. For more severe damage to the joint from arthritis, we offer surgical options to repair or replace the knee joint. We offer robotic resurfacing of the knee joint or replacement of some or all of the knee joint components. Dr. Glashow has a stellar reputation as one of the best orthopedic surgeons in the country, utilizing the most advanced techniques for both minimally-invasive osteoarthritis knee repairs and complete joint replacements.
