Patients seeking a Boston knee surgeon can find expert and compassionate care at Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH). Our orthopaedic surgeons provide a variety of advanced procedures and techniques to reduce pain, increase mobility and improve quality of life.
Services provided by a knee surgeon at BWH in Boston
Depending on the severity of the disease or injury, a knee surgeon at our Department of Orthopaedic Surgery in Boston may recommend total or partial knee replacement surgery.
In a partial knee replacement surgery, the knee surgeon will replace damaged parts of the knee while leaving healthy areas intact. Total knee replacement surgery involves replacing the bone and cartilage in all sections of the knee.
Your knee surgeon may also recommend a minimally invasive knee replacement surgery, where the surgeon uses very small instruments inserted through small incisions to repair or replace the knee. Patients undergoing minimally invasive procedures tend to lose less blood, experience less pain, and recover more quickly after surgery.
When to see a Boston knee surgeon
Boston patients with pain, stiffness and swelling in the knee may want to consult a knee surgeon at BWH if medicine, exercise and alternative medical techniques prove ineffective. Patients with osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis – diseases which can destroy bone and cartilage – may have no other recourse for treatment of their diseases.
