Knee Treatment & Replacement

Our Services Offered At Lee Health

Using innovative joint replacement methods, Lee Health-affiliated orthopedic surgeons provide innovative solutions for your knee pain. Our surgeons reconstruct hundreds of knee joints each year.

Treatments include routine and complex total knee replacement, revision of previously replaced joints that have worn out or failed, partial knee replacement, and arthroscopic knee surgery.

We also provide more conservative treatments such as cortisone injections and viscosupplementation.
