Knee Care Whether you are walking, playing a sport or performing a routine activity, the knee is critical for our mobility. It supports our bodyweight, and it contains a complex network of muscles, tendons, cartilage and bone allowing us to bend our leg. It can be susceptible to injuries from overuse, impact or twisting or bending forces, resulting in pain, discomfort and difficulty performing daily activities. If you are suffering from pain or an injury that is limiting your mobility, it is important to receive proper orthopedic care in order to return to the activities you enjoy and prevent future musculoskeletal conditions. At Mission Health, we bring together an elite team of orthopedic surgeons with special expertise in conditions and injuries of the knee in order to ensure that you receive the best care possible. A leader in orthopedics in the western North Carolina region, we combine compassion, technology and expertise to reduce your knee pain and safely return you to activity as soon as possible. We offer care for a wide variety of knee conditions, including: Patellofemoral instability ACL injuries Collateral ligament injury Kneecap dislocation Kneecap pain Synovial problems Meniscus tear repair and transplantation Comprehensive Treatment for Knee Injuries On the forefront of the latest technologies and treatments, Mission Health offers state-of-the-art procedures to help patients get better, faster. We use nonoperative care first, opting for surgery only if needed. Our physicians offer a wide variety of nonsurgical and conservative services, including, physical therapy, medications and cutting-edge regenerative medicine procedures. If conservative options are exhausted, Mission Health’s orthopedic surgeons offer minimally invasive arthroscopic procedures to repair damaged cartilage, ligaments, bone and tendons to restore function and return you to an active lifestyle. Performed using miniature instruments through a smaller incision, these procedures may result in less scarring, a lower risk of complications and faster recovery. Our orthopedic surgeons work alongside referring physicians to optimize care, and partner with rehabilitation specialists and community partners after surgery to increase strength, restore range of motion and reduce the risk of future re-injury. Serving patients of all ages and activity levels, our knee surgeons offer convenient locations throughout western North Carolina in Asheville, Hendersonville, Brevard, Spruce Pine, Franklin, Clyde and Marion.
