Knee pain is a common complaint in both athletes and the general population —knee pain may also become more common with normal aging, as cartilage (smooth bone lining) may naturally degenerate from wear and tear. There are many causes of knee pain. Aside from ligament injuries, cartilage injuries, meniscal injuries, and patellar problems, other common knee conditions require specialized consideration. It is important for an orthopedic sports medicine or knee specialist to make an accurate diagnosis of the cause of the knee symptoms, so that a guided treatment plan can be effectively prescribed. Dr. Lubowitz offers subspecialty treatment for a number of knee conditions in order to assist patients in their quest to become pain-free or to remain as active as possible.
