Knee

According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, knee injuries are the most common reason for visiting an orthopaedic surgeon. Raleigh Orthopaedic board certified, fellowship trained knee surgeons, Dr. Albright, Dr. Barker, Dr. Boes, Dr. Cadet, Dr. Callaway, Dr. Chiavetta, Dr. Dare, Dr. Eskildsen, Dr. Isbell, Dr. McNabb, Dr. Vaughn, Dr. Watters and Dr. Wyker are trained to diagnose causes of knee pain and treat minor injuries as well as total knee replacement.

How does the knee work?

The knee joint functions like a hinge where the thigh bone (femur) and shin bone (tibia) meet. The ends of the bones are covered with a thick cushion of cartilage. Knee cartilage damage or worn cartilage causes the underlying bones to rub together producing knee pain and inflammation typical of knee arthritis.
