The Most Comprehensive Knee Specialist in Manhattan
October 06, 2020
Avoid Cycling Through Several Knee Specialists
Do you have persistent knee pain? Have you bounced back and forth between several knee specialists without getting results? Knee pain is a big hindrance to your life, impacting everything from working to getting out of bed. Since the knee is a complex joint, several things could be causing the pain.
Unfortunately, that means patients often get sent to one specialist after another to find the cause. Sometimes patients see multiple knee specialists just to undo the damage of previous doctors’ treatment attempts. The good news is, you can skip that frustrating cycle by booking the most comprehensive knee specialist in Manhattan– Pain Treatment Specialists.

Orthopedic Surgeons Aren’t Advised for Most Patients
Some patients book an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon hoping they will relieve the pain. But orthopedic surgeons aren’t recommended for the majority of knee conditions. In fact, studies show knee surgeries have limited effectiveness and aren’t practically or financially justifiable for most patients. Knee replacement surgery and other invasive procedures pose several risks, like infection, blood clots, stiffness, buckling, swelling, scar tissue, internal damage, amplified pain, and even death.
Knee replacement requires a hefty investment and causes long recovery times, which costs extra in lost wages. Knee replacement also needs to be repeated, often more than once, to maintain mobility. It’s not uncommon for these surgeries to fail completely, not restoring mobility or relieving pain. Often, surgical patients are prescribed harmful narcotics and require more knee specialists to relieve the pain caused by surgery.
