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

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.

Dr. Christiansen really gave me a new lease on life when he performed my total knee replacement. I am now able to do so many things I love to do but thought were lost to me.

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.
