You meet with an orthopedic surgeon, who orders X-rays and has you answer questions about how your knee pain has been limiting you. He says your X-rays show severe osteoarthritis, and since your day-to-day functioning worsens despite everything you try, you are a good candidate for knee replacement surgery. He assures you that because you’re fairly healthy, you are not too old for the procedure.

We combine a data-driven approach that takes into account your diagnosis, symptoms, test and lab work, and medical history, and marry that with the individual attention of an expert clinician to arrive at the optimal treatment choice for you.
