The variety of knee conditions treated at The Leone Center for Orthopedic Care range from arthritis related knee joint destruction requiring a primary total (TKR) or partial knee replacement (PKR) to revising or “re-doing” a previous implant that failed. Here are the most common knee conditions we treat.
Degenerative Osteoarthritis (OA)
Degenerative osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common disease process resulting in the need for a knee replacement. Degenerative Osteoarthritis is a progressive joint disease that affects people’s ability to move their knee joint without pain. While OA is more common as we age, not everyone develops OA. There are two types: primary and secondary. While the symptoms may be the same for the both types, the underlying cause is different.
