Your knees support almost every move you make — walking, running, riding a bike, weight lifting, and more. Daily wear and tear can eventually take its toll, or you may experience an injury to one or both of your knees through physical activity. When this occurs, it’s important to see an experienced knee surgeon right away, as the problem will only worsen with additional movement and weight bearing.
The team of physicians and surgeons at Chatham Orthopaedic Associates treats a variety of knee injuries and conditions, including dislocation, arthritis, meniscal tears, tendonitis, fractures, bursitis, and sports injuries. While at times, the issue can be addressed with physical therapy or another non-surgical procedure, others may need a more extensive surgical treatment plan.

When you visit our office for an initial examination, one of our knee surgeons or specialists will evaluate your condition and recommend the best treatment plan for you. When surgery is found to be the most effective solution, we’ll take the time to understand your needs and concerns.
You’ll need some time for recovery following your knee surgery — your individual recovery period will depend on the extent of the procedure and other factors. Managing pain during recovery is key, and your surgeon may recommend anything from over-the-counter pain medication to stronger prescription drugs. A pain management specialist will help you understand the benefits and drawbacks of each option.
If you are experiencing severe pain and have been recommended knee surgery, contact Chatham Orthopaedic Associates. We have several practice locations in Savannah, Richmond Hill, Pooler, and Rincon. Contact us to schedule an evaluation with a knee surgeon and determine the proper treatment plan.
