How are Knee Disorders Treated?

There are many treatment options available for knee disorders, including non-surgical options such as rest, medication, knee braces, knee exercises and physical therapy. Sometimes, a partial or total knee replacement is the best option for reducing pain, reclaiming former activity level and quality of life.

More than 1.1 million knee joint replacement surgeries take place worldwide annually1. Advanced technologies like computer-aided tools and new knee implant designs have been developed to support surgeons in knee replacement surgeries.
