Proliance Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine has board certified physicians with specific training and experience in diagnosing and treating injuries and conditions of the knee. Knee injuries are some of the most common among people living an active lifestyle as the knee endures some of the greatest force and stress of any joint in the body. In particular, millions of Americans injure the cartilage in their knees each year. Our providers are expert in repairing early damage to knee cartilage, preventing more damaging degeneration from occurring. We are also one of the few practices in the Northwest with the expertise to offer our patients the option of cartilage transplantation for conditions where the cartilage is beyond practical repair. All of our treatments are geared toward significantly improving the function of the knee joint and reducing or eliminating pain in that joint, allowing patients to return to their healthy, active lives.
Our expertise and state-of-the-art imaging facilities, including x-ray and MRI, allow our providers to quickly and accurately diagnose all conditions involving the knee. If surgery is required required, the vast majority of these conditions can be treated with minimally invasive arthroscopic techniques that are less painful and allow for a quicker recovery. Most of the procedures, with the exception of replacement of the joint, are also conducted in an ambulatory surgery setting that allows our patients to avoid the expense and inconvenience of a hospital stay.
