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

Dr. V has scoped both of my knees then did a total replacement on one. Dealt with the early stages of severe shoulder joint damage and recommended the surgeon (outside her practice) who ultimately did the surgery. Extremely knowledgeable, caring, attentive. If you ever read her dictation notes you will find that she listened and retained everything you told her. I trust her implicitly and highly recommend her.

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 corrected a previous botched total knee replacement for me. He is very caring and tries to figure out the problem quickly. It does take some time to get in to see him but it is worth it. He knows what he is doing and I... Dr. Christiansen corrected a previous botched total knee replacement for me.

My pain was unbelievable. I couldn't walk any distance at all. I dreaded the surgery, the associated pain and recovery. Dr. Huff did a total knee replacement and straightened my leg. Within two weeks, I was walking without any assistance. The pain from the surgery and recovery was nothing. Today I can walk any where I want and as long as I want without pain. THANK YOU Dr. Huff.

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.

My knee was good as new for a period of five years. Ligaments Are still great, knee is now bone on bone. I willhave Dr D’Angelo do kneereplacement. I have nothing but 5 stars to say about D’Angelo and staff.I also have spinal stinosis, bulging disc, collapsed disc, pinched nerves. Dr Lockstadt and staff have taken greatcare of my back. Dr Lockstadt has gone to greatlengths to keep me mobile and working. I do not know what Iwould do without their expertise. I had many people warn me not to see them. I do not need a best friend. Ineed someone to fix my bone deterioration. These guy’s have taken care of me with great concern and insight.They do not want to do surgery first thing. Some of the brightest and innovative doctors in Lexington. Thank you Bluegrass Orthopaedics.
