Knee Pain Treatment from the Multidisciplinary Team at Tampa General Hospital
For those suffering from a knee condition, there are a number of knee pain treatment strategies available, including oral and injected medications, physical therapy, and surgery. Of course, the best course of action is dependent upon a wide variety of factors, such as the patient’s age and the nature and severity of his or her condition. However, when it has been determined that a patient’s best chance for recovery lies with orthopedic surgery, it’s is important that the procedure be performed by an orthopedic specialist.
At Tampa General Hospital, we are known for taking a comprehensive, multidisciplinary team approach to orthopedic care to provide an improved quality of life for the patients we treat. From the day a patient checks into our facility through discharge, he or she will work with a team of experienced professionals which includes:
- Physical and occupational therapists
- Physician’s assistants
- Social workers
- Care Coordinators
As a high-volume surgical center that performed more than 1,300 joint replacements in 2014 alone, the team at TGH has the experience necessary to guide patients through the knee pain treatment process.
