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 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

I’m not quite 2 months out of a revision on my left knee (2nd revision following botched surgeries by 2 Louisville orthopedists). I can’t say enough good things about how good Dr. Denehy is. He listens and is very concerned with the patients wellbeing. After having 2 other surgeons mess up my knee, I’m very appreciative that Dr. Denehy fixed their mistakes.

He is a caring Christian man and an excellent surgeon. He spends a lot of time with patients preparing for surgery. Follow up is usually with PA. He & all staff are professional & I would recommend him to anyone - relief of constant pain is a blessing.

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.

It was no pain at all. He is very professional... I saw Dr.Balthrop for a knee injection. I have had two previous knee injections elsewhere that were horribly painful !!!!
