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

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.

I had my surgery on the 4th of Dec 18 on my right knee with a total knee replacement and now I'm having total knee replacement on my left knee on the 14 of Feb. 19. I would highly recommend Dr. Denehy.

He is the best! I’m completely satisfied with my bilateral knee replacement that was done in 2001. Yesterday I had X-rays and my knees are still perfect! He has a compassionate bedside manner and takes a keen interest in his patients. He is the best! I’m completely satisfied with my bilateral knee replacement that was done in 2001.

I have had one knee replacement done last October and the other one done February 25 and I have done well. But I knew how good he was because he had done my Mom's in 2005 and she never had a bit of trouble either. I am thankful.

I prayed all spring and summer for god to lead someone across my path with the best of best doctor that was a godly man/woman for my knees ,I'm so thankful he answered my prayers, he was not only a Christian but he prayed for the patient and prayed for his staff that helped him during surgery. I called and got right in to see Dr Christian Christensen ...I loved him, trusted him, loved his staff and three days later he partially replaced one of my knees !! I would highly recommend this wonderful doctor
