Knee Osteoarthritis Treatment
Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis, especially arthritis that impacts the knee joint. Knee osteoarthritis involves inflammation inside the knee joint that can result in damage or loss to the cartilage that protects the bones within the knee. Knee osteoarthritis is one of the most common reasons individuals require a knee joint replacement. At Robotic Hip and Knee Replacement LA, we are knee joint specialists, and we offer advanced options in knee osteoarthritis treatment at our medical center in Los Angeles.
Causes and Symptoms of Knee Osteoarthritis
Knee osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition where the cartilage in the knee wears thin. The main causes of osteoarthritis include a genetic predisposition to the disease, as well as joint injuries, cartilage damage and risk factors like obesity. Over time, osteoarthritis can result in the cartilage wearing away, minimizing the cushion and protection between the bones. As friction increases in the knee joint, symptoms can occur, including:
- Pain when walking, climbing stairs or standing after sitting
- Stiffness in the knee
- Knee joint swelling
- Loss of range of motion
- Osteoarthritis can impact only one knee or both
Knee osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition without a cure. However, advances have been made in slowing the deterioration of the cartilage. Dr. Farzin Kabaei and our team at Robotic Hip and Knee Replacement LA offer multiple modalities for knee osteoarthritis treatment that can slow the progression of this disease, preserving the joint and delaying the need for replacement surgery. We offer interventional treatments that can relieve knee pain, improve mobility and preserve the knee joint.
