Why do you have knee pain?

Some of the leading causes of knee pain can be caused by certain types of arthritis, namely “Osteoarthritis,” sport injuries, auto accidents and work injuries, and mechanical problems. Our team of surgeons and pain specialists are confident in diagnosing the root cause of the pain and treating the knee injury and/or arthritic joint pain with our successful knee pain treatment program. If the level of injury is too significant, we will consider surgical consultation to give all of the appropriate options.

Let’s start with Arthritis, namely osteoarthritis of the kneed as it is a common reason why patient seeks out our specialists to treat their pain. Many patients have suffered with the pain and are wanting to avoid for as long as possible a TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENT OR PARTIAL KNEE REPLACEMENT. It’s important for all our patients to be aware the different treatments that we can provide.

You may have answered YES to many or all of the following questions in our quiz above. Here’s a quick review:

  • Do your knees hurt when going up and down stairs?
  • Do you have swelling or limited motion in your knees?
  • Do you experience pain when running or working out?
  • Have you been told you may need knee replacement surgery?
  • Do you depend on NSAIDS to manage your knee pain without much success?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, you are eligible for our complimentary knee pain screening Click Here.

Before heading in for surgery or just living with the pain, our knee pain relief and arthritis program may be perfect solutions. Our program offers the use of a safe and all-natural *joint lubricant, often referred to as *Synvisc®, *Hyalgan®, and *Orthovisc®.

The process of injecting the lubricant is called a viscosupplementation and it acts as a shock absorber or “joint oil”. The natural substance is a hyaluronic acid, which contains one of the natural building blocks of the synovial fluid that lubricates your knee. The lubricant is injected safely and carefully into the joint by way of ultra-sound guided imaging. Our team utilized this technology to accurately inject the *Synvisc®, *Hyalgan®, or *Orthovisc® to achieve the best results.

This treatment is also very effective for sports injuries and for athletes that love to run, bike, hike or participate in any sports that put stress on the knees. The visit for the procedure takes less than 30 minutes and there is no down time after the injection. The injections can also be repeated for the maximum pain relief and comfort depending on the condition of the knee.

*Synvisc®, *Hyalgan®, or *Orthovisc® is covered by most insurance companies and we happy to check your insurance benefits for you prior to your new patient appointment!

With our Knee Pain Program Click Here to Schedule a Free Screening we coordinate a series of physical rehabilitation sessions and detailed at home exercises to further restore knee function, strength and continued pain relief. We want our knee pain patients to feel better and do more!

What if you have Referred Knee Pain and where could the pain be coming from?

Referred knee pain may be the result of a herniated disc in the back, arthritis in the hip or even clots in the leg. It is important to distinguish pain that arises from knee pathology from other potential causes.

Referred pain may also coexist with a problem in the knee. A pinched nerve for example may result in pain behind the knee and a torn piece of cartilage inside may cause pain in the front of the knee. These two problems together can lead to pain that is felt all over the knee.

Our Pain Specialists accurately diagnosis the cause of knee pain everyday and help our patients best determine the options appropriate to treat their pain.

“My knees hurt so bad in the morning that I hated getting out of bed. Dr. Nasser suggested I try putting some lubrication in my knees and I am sure glad he did. It has helped me more than I thought it could.” – Jack R.

Reviews

Congrats to another raving fan of Dr. Timothy Luke and the team at Minimally Invasive Spine AZ! The patient had an out-patient, decompression surgery of his lumbar spine at L3/L4! He is standing tall and feeling great again. “When I came to here my pain level was through the roof. And after the surgery the pain was small the first two weeks, but now I am getting stronger and my mobility has totally improved. Today I am in NO pain! I have my life back thanks to Dr. Timothy Luke.”
We love seeing our patients get back to living a life they love after a minimally invasive spine surgery. Dr. Luke performed an L4-L5 decompression surgery to alleviate back and leg pain. Carlos wrote, "Before my laminectomy with Dr. Luke I had been in terrible pain for 4 years. I tried everything from physical therapy to shots with little results. The pain kept me from enjoying the outdoors and working out. After the procedure I was hiking within a week. I’m in considerably less pain and I can once again be active. Thank you so much."
"As a medical doctor i recognize an excellent physician when I find a good balance of knowledge, skill, caring, compassion and understanding. I would only allow a physician with those qualities to perform my required invasive procedures. Without question, Dr. Nasser possess this balance. From the time of the first interview, until completion of my last surgery, Dr. Nasser and all this staff have gone great lengths to assure my successful recovery with the utmost professionalism, skill, knowledge, understanding, caring and compassion. Thanks again for being there."
I am very grateful that I took a chance on AZPTc. Dr. Nasser is the BEST! I've been having back pain for at least a decade but the last two years have been extremely bad. My really bad days were a 10 out of 10. After meeting Dr. Nasser for the first time and having him look at my MRI he immediately came up with a plan of attack to help me get my life back. Four weeks after having a Radio Frequency Ablation I have ZERO PAIN. I mean ZERO. In fact, immediately after my procedure I was pain free. I’m back to working out and doing the activities that I enjoy doing and not having to worry about how my back is going to feel the next day. I would recommend AZPTC to anyone especially Dr. Nasser but everyone in the office is really nice and professional. Many Thanks to Dr. Nasser and the whole AZPTC team. For people out there who think there is no hope and your just going to have to live with your pain please give AZPTC a chance.
