During this time of public health concern, many appointments for knee care may take place via telehealth wherever it's possible and appropriate. For all in-person visits, we've taken significant measures to minimize the risk of the spread of COVID-19 and keep you safe, including visitor restrictions, symptom screening, social distancing, required masking, frequent disinfecting and direct entry from check-in to exam rooms where possible. 

Ohio State Specialists Can Put An End To Your Knee Pain

Are you constantly suffering from knee pain? Do you have difficulty getting in or out of a chair? Does your knee ache at night or when you are resting? Does knee pain keep you from enjoying activities? If so, come see the knee experts at Ohio State. Same or next-day appointments are often available. 

We treat all kinds of knee pain, conditions and injuries, such as:

  • Osteoarthritis of the knee
  • Inflammation and swelling
  • Cartilage damage
  • Knee sprains
  • Knee dislocation
  • Ruptured or torn ligaments, such as an ACL or meniscus tear

Some knee pain may respond to a nonsurgical approach, such as injections, physical therapy or bracing. If you have tried nonsurgical treatment for your knee pain and it no longer works, it may be time to consider a knee replacement. A knee replacement is a surgical procedure in which the diseased or damaged area of the knee is replaced with an artificial joint called an implant. This can be partial or full knee replacement.

Why Choose Ohio State for Treatment of Knee Pain?

As an academic health center, we have access to the full range of medical specialists and can coordinate all of your care. The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center was the first hospital in central Ohio to perform total knee replacement using a robotic-arm assisted system. This exactness in placing and aligning your implant allows you to spend less time in the operating room, in recovery and away from activities you enjoy.
