Knee & Lower Leg Specialists in Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Fort Lauderdale Orthopaedic Surgery and Sports Medicine provides patients with access to leading joint specialists in South Florida that treat conditions of the knee and lower leg.
Common Conditions of the Knee & Lower Leg
The knee and lower leg area is one of the most complex regions in the body. Even minor injuries can seriously impact your quality of life and keep you off your feet. It’s important to seek an orthopedic specialist that can not only treat and care for your injury, but correctly diagnose the underlying issue. It is appropriate to see a specialist after you sustain an injury, but also when you begin to experience pain in the knee or lower leg, or if you experience difficulty walking or stability issues radiating from the knee area.
Common Procedures of the Knee & Lower Leg
Depending on the severity and location of your injury, treatment can vary. For some types of small or partial tears, you may be able to avoid surgery. Treatments such as braces, physical therapy, injections and anti-inflammatory medication may be an option in some cases. In cases where there is severe damage to the joint, a complicated fracture, or other significant damage, surgery may be required. At Fort Lauderdale Orthopedic Surgery & Sports Medicine, our providers specialize in minimally invasive surgeries, making use of robotic technologies and the latest practices to help bring stability and healing back to your body.
