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 had surgery on Mon., got out of hospital on Thurs. and was at our church yard sale on Sat., without a cane or walker. He had prayer for me before surgery. I thank GOD for the knowledge and talent that HE has given to Dr. Christensen. I think most importantly you need to do the therapy as I think it helps you to have a speedy recovery. I'm now going to have surgery on my other knee soon. I highly recommend him and his staff.

He has been following up my knees since he replaced the first one 20 years ago and they are still going strong. He has always been concerned with my health and well being, a fine doctor and human being

Dr. Huff is a very personable and friendly orthopedist yet professional. He helped ease my fear of getting knee injections for severe pain and now my knees don’t hurt nearly as much. Highly recommend his services!

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

Aside from being a phenominal surgeon he shows great compassion for his patients. For anyone needing a knee or hip, you will not find a better surgeon.
