Getting to the Root of Knee OA

While options for conservative treatment of knee osteoarthritis (OA) are limited, controversy continues to surround the safety and efficacy of commonly-used corticosteroid injections.

David Huxtable and Kendall Thompson still had pain and instability long after knee surgery at other orthopedic practices. None of these patients was satisfied with what they were told about their knees or the treatments they had received.
