Daniel Murphy M.D., the Board-certified orthopaedic surgeon at Tampa Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Group, has a vast amount of experience performing joint replacement procedures of all kinds, including knee replacement surgery. He can evaluate your condition and determine if a surgical procedure offers you the best chance for improved mobility and quality of life, or if any of the following nonsurgical treatments may prove efficacious:
- Anti-inflammatory medications
- Physical therapy
- Cortisone injections
- Hyaluronic acid injections
Except in severe cases, total joint replacement surgery should be considered a treatment of last resort once a wide range of conservative (nonsurgical) therapies have been tried.
