Knee Dislocations

Knee Dislocations

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians offers proven treatment options for knee dislocations in Atlanta. Our sports medicine specialists carry extensive experience in knee injuries and they can ensure you achieve the most successful outcome after your knee dislocation.

When the bones of the lower leg (the tibia and fibula) are moved out of place in relation to the thighbone (femur), a dislocated knee results. Although it is a less common injury, knee dislocations can occur after major trauma. Whether your knee dislocated during a fall or a high-speed injury, our sports medicine and orthopedic team is equipped to relieve your pain and restore any damaged structures in your joint.

Treatment for Dislocated Knee

It is critical that you seek treatment for a dislocated knee as quickly as possible, as inappropriate or delayed treatment may result in loss of the leg. After your knee is relocated during a reduction procedure, your knee will need to be examined for further injury. For a knee dislocation to occur, the stabilizing ligaments of the knee must tear. Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians treats partial dislocations as well as more complex knee dislocations that may involve the kneecap and ligament injury.

You can trust our experienced surgeons to reconstruct the knee and repair any cartilage damage, ligament damage or bone fracture that may have occurred. Whenever possible, we use minimally invasive or arthroscopic techniques to allow faster recovery time and less scarring for the patient. Whether you are a disciplined athlete or you simply exercise to stay healthy, our goal is to help each patient regain full knee function and comfortable mobility after a dislocation injury.

Contact our office today to learn more about your treatment options for knee dislocations. We are an advanced orthopedic practice who understands the complex function of the joints as well as how they can be restored best. Treating your dislocated knee will involve committed efforts to relieve your painful symptoms as well as preserve your long-term joint health.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.

Heat and Cold Therapy: Home Remedies

Hitting the Funny Bone Isn’t Funny

There is nothing hilarious about whacking your funny bone. In fact, the funny bone is not a bone. It is called that because of the funny – as in hard to describe – feeling you get when that part of the elbow is hit. What you are actually hitting is the ulnar nerve that runs from your neck to your hand. This nerve innervates muscles in the forearm and hand. The end of the nerve has two branches. The little finger and half the ring finger are innervated by these branches.
