graphic of knee pain

Knee

The knee is the largest joint in the body and one of the most easily injured. It's also one of the most common joints replaced.

The simple act of getting out of bed in the morning can be painful for a person with an injured knee. Whether you're suffering from a past injury or from the gradual wear and tear of arthritis, knee pain can make it difficult for you to maintain an active lifestyle

All of the nurses and receptionist were the best and dr christainsen was amazing. I literally walked out of there after total knee replacement an hour after waking up. Loved that he prayed with me and my wife prior to surgery

Highly recommend Dr. Denehy's clear, concise explanation of what to expect from a knee replacement. He answered all questions from both of us.

Wonderful! He really takes the time to offer his patients the best care. Would not consider anyone else for hip or knee. His skills are amazing, plus he really demonstrates that he wants his patients to get better!

Not only is Dr. Denehy an outstanding surgeon but he has an amazing bedside manner. We went to see if after consulting another surgeon and liked what he had to say. My mother needed a full knee replacement at 85 years old. I was concerned with her being put under general anesthesia due to complications for someone her age. Dr. Denehy suggested a spinal which was the perfect solution! The other surgeon stated my mother would have to go to rehab for two weeks, Dr. Denehy said she could go home as long as someone stayed with her for 48 hours. He is concerned with possible infection at a rehab. The nurses at Baptist raved about him, said he had the lowest infection rate in the hospital and they would recommend him for their family. Anyway, 9 weeks post opt, my 85-year-old mother has completely recovered and no longer needs to do physical therapy. 2 weeks post-op she could walk without her walker

I went to him for my Partial Right Knee replacement a year ago because I had heard only good reviews. I have not been disappointed. He did a terrific surgery on me. No complaints. Follow ups were great. His PA's are very professional. They took the time to answer all my questions. Would recommend Dr. Christensen and Bluegrass Orthopedics to any one that needs knee surgery.

I've just had a first visit with Dr. Denehy but was very impressed as he just made me feel very comfortable and was willing to take time with me. At some point in time I'll need new knees so it was important to feel comfortable. In the meantime he injected both knees and I can actually walk for the first time in over a month. Thank you Dr. Denehy.

She took her time with me, explained everything & answered all of my questions without being in a hurry. She also addressed my knee problem that day & made the treatment plan to where most places the first visit would have only been a consult & I would have had to wait weeks to get back in. I would highly recommend Dr Vasicek.

For. Christendom is great. Spends time explains knee replacement surgery. His PA is equally great at explaining things.
