Knee pain is very common, so there’s a good chance you will need to seek medical attention from a knee specialist at some point in your life. Whether you recently sustained a sports-related knee injury or you’ve been dealing with knee arthritis for some time, you are welcome to consult with a knee injury specialist at Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic. As a privately owned orthopedic practice, we emphasize personalized care, and we offer the latest diagnostic and treatment options in a convenient and comfortable location near Jeffersonville, Indiana.

Why Is Knee Pain So Common?

A complex and hardworking joint, the knee connects the upper leg bone (femur) to the lower leg bones (tibia and fibula) via an intricate structure of muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Because the knee endures significant stress—not only during athletic activities but also through daily wear and tear—it is prone to a variety of painful conditions. Whether your knee pain is caused by a traumatic injury, such as a ligament tear or a joint dislocation; an overuse injury, such as runner’s knee; or a degenerative condition that has developed gradually over time, such as osteoarthritis, the best way to find effective relief is to have your knee evaluated by a specialist.

When to See an Orthopedic Knee Injury Specialist

If you experience any of the following symptoms, a visit with a knee injury specialist may be in order:

  • Severe pain in or behind your knee or within your kneecap
  • Swelling in your knee or calf
  • An inability to walk or otherwise move your knee without pain
  • A popping sound or grinding sensation when you move your knee
  • A feeling that your knee is “about to give out” while you are walking, running, or jumping

Why is it so important to see an orthopedic knee specialist? When not properly diagnosed and addressed early on, some knee conditions such as osteoarthritis can continue to worsen, cause severe pain and, in advanced cases, ultimately require surgery. For instance, knee ligament injuries such as an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear, medial collateral ligament (MCL) tear, or posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) tear may require a reconstructive repair. In some cases, these procedures can be performed using minimally invasive techniques that minimize disruption to surrounding tissues, which can lead to a faster recovery.

The experienced knee injury specialists at Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic understand that knee pain can disrupt your life and make even simple, everyday tasks a challenge to complete. We are committed to providing individualized treatment, and after assessing your condition we can help you overcome your knee pain as quickly as possible.

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. Yakkanti did my knee replacement in June. He is an excellent surgeon with a great bedside manner. I have recovered nicely and plan to have my other knee replaced within the next year. I would highly recommend Dr. Yakkanti to anyone thinking about knee replacement!
