Both orthopedic sports medicine doctors and joint replacement doctors address knee pain and the many conditions and injuries that lead to that pain. Many knee injuries can be treated with injections, therapy or bracing and lead to a full recovery. Sports Medicine doctors are specialists in treating knee pain from injuries – arthroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that can treat many conditions that cause knee pain.  As we age, knee pain comes from arthritis in the joint, as the cartilage wears away in the knee. Joint replacement specialists are experts in many types of knee replacement techniques that can eliminate bone on bone arthritis and restore pain-free motion in the knee.
