How Delaying Knee Pain Treatment Can Impact Overall Health

Mar 24, 2021

Delaying treatment, in some cases, leads to:

    • decreased mobility
    • reduced activity
    • reduced surgical benefit
    • depression


All of these can contribute to a decline in your overall health.

A report recently published in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery found that delaying surgery can deprive
patients of the surgery’s full benefits. But when surgery is done too soon, patients put themselves at risk and
may wind up needing another replacement.

You may not yet require surgery, or you may not be ready for a knee replacement but could benefit from
other treatment options. The goal is to help you live your life to the fullest without limitations.

Our specialists will work with you to determine optimal timing for any recommended treatments. We are
here to provide you with information and recommendations, but the decision is always yours.

Conservative options are always exhausted prior to recommending surgery. The physicians at Louisville
Orthopaedic Clinic always have your best interests in mind.

Don’t delay! Set up an appointment today to learn how we can help you live without limitations and benefit
the most from treatment. We continue to follow all CDC guidelines to provide a safe experience.

I was able to get a office visit on short notice. It seemed to be a very busy day. Rebecca took the time to listen to all of my issues and discuss a plan for additional treatment. I have always been impressed with her knowledge and bed side manner.

Dr Goodin has replaced both of my knees this year with excellent results. He and Carly listen to my concerns, act promptly and work hard to make this journey the best it can be. Carly and Dr Goodin both have GREAT bedside manner and I feel I am in expert care with them.

Dr. Richardson is the best! He did shoulder decompression surgery for me many moons ago and has continued to treat me for other shoulder, arm, and back issues since. I would recommend him to anyone!
