Knee Conditions

Knee Replacement surgeon in South Austin

Pain, swelling, or stiffness in the knee joint are commonly associated with knee conditions such as a torn ligament or tendon. Arthritis is also common in the knee joint. Knee pain can gradually worsen and the swelling or stiffness may prevent you from being able to do everyday activities, like walking, standing, and exercising.
