Knee Diseases


There are various diseases associated with knee pain and we are here to help you pinpoint the issue. We have many typles of treatment plans available and high-tech equipment to find a solution.

Bowed Leg

Bowed legs are the result of one, or both of the legs curving out, which exaggerates a bowed appearance.

Adolescents occasionally have bowed legs. In many of these cases, the child is significantly overweight.

Discoid Meniscus

A discoid meniscus is a peculiarly shaped meniscus in the knee. Some individuals with discoid meniscus may go through their entire lives and never experience any issues. Some, however, will have knee complications related to the discoid meniscus, which is typically initiated during childhood.

Knee Tendon Bursitis

Pain and tenderness on the inside of your knee, approximately 2 to 3 inches below the joint, are symptoms of knee tendon bursitis.

Bursitis, an inflammation of a bursa, usually progresses as the result of overuse or constant friction and stress on the bursa. Bursitis is common in athletes, particularly runners and individuals with osteoarthritis of the knee.

Kneecap (Prepatellar) Bursitis

Plumbers and individuals of trade, who spend frequent exhaustion on their knees often experience swelling in the front of the knee. The constant friction aggravates a small lubricating sac located just in front of the kneecap.

The bursa empowers the kneecap to move smoothly. If the bursa comes to be inflamed, it fills with fluid and grounds swelling at the top of the knee. This condition is called kneecap (prepatellar) bursitis.

Limb Length Discrepancy

The difference between the lengths of the upper or lower arms and the upper and lower legs is referred to as limb length discrepancies (LLD). Except in life-threatening cases, limb length differences do not obtrude function.

Osteonecrosis of the Knee

A relatively common cause of knee pain in older individuals occurs when a segment of bone loses its blood supply, also known as osteonecrosis. Three times as many women are affected by osteonecrosis than men; in which most are over 60 years of age.

Osteonecrosis of the knee is also supplementary with certain conditions and treatments, such as obesity, sickle cell anemia, lupus, kidney transplants, and steroid therapy. Steroid-induced osteonecrosis is usually seen in younger patients.
