Knee joints are put under enormous stress throughout a lifetime. Sports injuries, accidents, disease and degenerative conditions can take their toll on the structures of the knee joint, resulting in knee pain and limited function. Dr. Frederick F. Buechel, Jr., M.D. is an expert in the diagnosis and treatment of knee pain.
Knee pain can occur from a variety of anatomical structures that can be injured, inflamed or degenerated. Dr. Buechel will help you understand the origin of your knee pain and provide you with a proper diagnosis by listening to your history, performing a physical examination, and reviewing the appropriate imaging of your knee (x-rays, MRIs, CT scans). In some cases, blood examination may be a key part of the evaluation of your knee condition. Certain conditions may require drawing fluid from the knee (joint aspiration) to help provide the correct diagnosis.
Treatment for Knee Pain
The knee joint contains multiple bones, ligaments, cartilage structures, muscles and tendons that work together for proper knee function. When any part is damaged or injured, it can result in knee pain and dysfunction. Dr. Buechel offers a variety of treatment options for patients with knee pain.
