Chronic knee pain from arthritis, an old sports injury or other medical conditions, can limit enjoyment of daily ife. In the past, options for non-operative treatment were limited to a variety of medications such as anti-inflammatories or more potent pain relievers, long periods of physical therapy or injections such as cortisone shots or visco supplementation.
Ultimately, if those forms of treatment failed, the only solution for lasting pain relief was a total knee replacement.
