Finding a Top-Grade Knee Surgeon Is Easy Using These Simple Tips

You’re already living with chronic knee pain. Unfortunately, the search for the best orthopaedic knee surgeon can often be stressful. That’s because the majority of orthopaedic patients aren’t certain what to look for.

What factors are the most important to consider when pursuing orthopaedic knee surgery? The answers to these questions will help you to identify the best orthopaedic doctor for your particular knee issues and your individual patient profile. We offer you the expert advice you need below.

Looking for the Best Orthopaedic Knee Surgeon? Consider These Four Factors

Finding the best orthopaedic hospital and best orthopaedic surgeon can be easy; you simply need to know what to look for. Consider the following four factors as you start searching for the perfect orthopaedic knee specialist.

  1. Patient Profile
    The care required by different types of knee patients varies greatly. What is your patient profile (age, overall health, level of activity?) Is your knee issue the result of a traumatic injury, overtraining, or a chronic, degenerative condition? Finding a practice that specializes in treating patients in situations similar to yours will be an essential component of finding the best surgeon available.

    Our broad range of specialty services at Rothman Orthopaedic Institute ensures that patients of all profiles can find personalized, patient-specific care. For active patients, Sports Medicine physicians should be able to help. Patients suffering from knee arthritis might seek care with one of our joint replacement surgeons.

  2. Surgical Options
    When it comes to knee surgery, one size certainly does not fit all. Are you in need of reconstructive surgery? An arthroscopic operation? Or perhaps a total knee replacement? Whatever your particular condition may be, you’ll want to find a surgeon that excels at providing the specific surgical treatment that can best address it. Or, better yet, find a practice that offers a full range of surgical services.

    Rothman Orthopaedic Institute features surgeons who specialize in the following surgical treatment options:

  3. Our Specialists
    The surgeons themselves are, of course, the key element to a successful outcome. The most advanced technology and medical resources will be wasted if the surgeons are not of the highest skill level in performing the treatments you need. That’s why it’s critical to find surgeons who aren’t just specialized in treating the knee; but who are sub-specialized in treating your particular condition.

    All of Rothman Orthopaedic Institute’s knee surgeons are fellowship trained in their specific area of expertise in addition to standard medical residencies. During these fellowships, they undergo intensive skill training in their chosen field.

  4. Additional Services
    Excellent surgical care will naturally be the most important element of your knee treatment plan. However, the availability of associated services and comprehensive care will be important, both for the outcome of your treatment and your own convenience. Without immediate access to imaging and diagnostic services, recovery care, physical therapy, and more, you’ll need to be referred to a number of other centers and practices.

    Rothman Orthopaedic Institute features all these comprehensive services patients need under one roof, from non-surgical treatments and therapies to the most advanced testing services.

  • Cartilage Restoration Institute

    This is a center where patients can go to have their disabled joint biological resurfaced, realigned, and stabilized without having the joint replaced by artificial materials such as metal and plastic. It is well known that the outcomes of patients under the age of 50 undergoing artificial joint replacement are not as good as we would like. Therefore we feel the future of Orthopaedics is to try to restore a joint back to its original anatomy by realignment, ligament reconstruction, and cartilage restoration.
