Sports Medicine and Knee Surgery: San Francisco / Marin California Experiences
The knee is a joint that can take a lot of abuse. Unfortunately, many of us push our knees as young adults through sports. Others want to continue to be active in sports throughout life. Both are excellent goals for overall health, and there are things you can do to prevent injury, but in some instances sports conditions may aggravate or begin issues with the knee.
Most sports injuries of the knee, of course, begin with pain. The injury can be a sudden injury like a fall or accident, or it may be the result of long-term use of the knee in athletics. Morover, many patients have knee injuries as young adults - wherein they may get by for many years, only to find in middle age that they are candidates for minimally invasive knee surgery, partial knee replacement, or even total knee replacements.
