As a leader in surgical innovation, Center for Sports Medicine and Orthopaedics specializes in the implementation of exciting new techniques that effectively relieve joint pain, while also mitigating the high costs of hospital based facilities. That’s why we’re proud to announce our new VELYS Robotic-Assisted Solution as an option for knee replacement surgery. This initiative once again demonstrates why CSMO physicians are widely respected and regarded as leaders in their fields.
Chronic knee pain is commonly caused by wear and tear of the joints, otherwise known as osteoarthritis (OA). OA affects approximately 30 million Americans every year, and by 2030, almost 70 million Americans are projected to be at an increased risk for OA. Left untreated, it can even make simple tasks like climbing stairs nearly impossible.
Lifestyle changes such as weight loss, increased strength, and improved flexibility have well-documented beneficial effects on overall joint health, and there are non-invasive and minimally-invasive approaches that can mitigate pain from a degenerative knee. Physical therapy or over-the-counter medications may be the first treatment option for knee pain, but when the pain becomes severe or interferes with daily activities, knee replacement may be an option.
Center for Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic Surgery is equipped with the latest medical technology like the VELYS Robotic-Assisted Solution and stands as the region’s only freestanding surgery center offering outpatient robotic knee replacement. CSMO puts outpatient joint replacement and cutting-edge surgical pain resolution techniques within reach of almost anyone, all without the cost, stress, and hassle of large, hospital based systems.
CSMO Doctors Nash, Ballard, Rogers, and Miller are highly skilled, well-established joint surgery professionals in Chattanooga who have been trained for this new technology. They will always thoroughly review available treatment options to help you decide the best path forward for your particular wants, needs, and circumstances.
We’re happy to talk to you about your knee pain, or any other factors that will help you decide if robotic knee replacement surgery is the right option for you. Call us or schedule an appointment with one of our Joint Specialists to get you back in motion.
