As the premier orthopedic and neurosurgical providers for Portland, Vancouver, Lake Oswego, and the surrounding areas for over 40 years, our fellowship-trained and board-certified knee doctors at Rebound Orthopedics & Neurosurgery are dedicated to delivering exceptional knee care.
Knee pain can affect people of all ages, resulting from an age-related condition, like arthritis, or a sports-related injury, like an ACL tear. No matter the type of injury or condition sustained, knee doctors have the education, experience, and training to evaluate and diagnose a multitude of knee problems. Many knee doctors have specialized training in either joint replacement or sports medicine, which makes them specialists in providing patients with the best and most advanced knee treatment options. These treatment options can include both conservative methods and surgical procedures, but the method chosen will ultimately depend on the individual patient. All knee doctors are focused on helping to reduce patients' pain and get them back to an active lifestyle.
When Is It Time to Consult a Knee Doctor?
Being able to communicate any of the symptoms you are experiencing will allow you to provide helpful information to your knee doctor. It can reveal to your doctor how severe your knee injury is or the type of knee condition you may have. It is important to schedule an appointment with a knee doctor near you if you have any of the following symptoms:
- Inability to bend the knee without pain
- Knee gives out when you stand or try to walk
- Knee locks up when you stand or try to walk
- Painful bump under or on the kneecap
- Popping or grinding sounds when moving the knee
- Stiffness or swelling
- Searing or burning knee pain
- Throbbing knee pain that keeps you up at night
If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, it could mean that you have one of the following injuries or conditions, which can be treated by our knee specialists:
- ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) tear
- Cartilage damage or injury
- Kneecap (patellar) fracture
- Knee sprain
- Loose bone trapped within the joint
