Knee

The knee is the largest joint in the body and a common source of injury. Knee injuries are often the result of repetitive overuse or acute trauma from an impact or twisting stress.

Whatever the cause of knee pain, the experienced physicians at UT Southwestern Medical Center can help.

Our skilled surgeons treat a variety of knee conditions, including:

  • Injuries to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), and medial collateral ligament (MCL)
  • Arthritis, including rheumatoid, post-traumatic, psoriatric, and osteoarthritis
  • Avascular bone necrosis (damages blood supply to joint)
  • Sprained or strained knee ligaments or muscles

Knee Services

We offer a variety of nonsurgical and surgical treatments to relieve knee pain and restore stability and function of the joint. When medication fails to control your knee pain, we offer physical therapy to strengthen the knee and braces or casts to stabilize the joint and help it heal.

For injuries that require surgical treatments, our surgeons offer knee repair surgery, including knee osteotomy and knee arthroscopy.

We offer knee reconstruction surgery for torn ACL, providing a specialized anatomic approach to the procedure that results in less postoperative pain and faster recovery.

When the knee joint is deteriorating beyond repair, our expert surgeons offer total and partial knee replacement surgery to replace the joint.

UT Southwestern offers world-class technology and techniques in the surgical replacement and reconstruction of knee joints. We are a high-volume center, replacing nearly 450 knees joints each year. This level of experience translates into better outcomes for our patients.
