Knee replacement surgery for osteoarthritis or a sports injury should only be performed by a Board-certified surgeon who has extensive experience in knee joint procedures. However, you also want to feel at ease with your surgeon and know that he or she is speaking to you openly and honestly about your condition and your treatment options. When you turn to Tampa Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Group for your knee replacement, you can be sure that you’re getting the best of both worlds.
Our Board-certified orthopaedic surgeon, Daniel Murphy M.D., has extensive experience performing all types of orthopaedic knee surgery – total and arthroscopic – and he believes in educating his patients so they can make informed decisions about their treatment plan. He can evaluate your condition and determine if surgery is necessary or he may be able to help you find relief and improve your quality of life with one of our many non-surgical treatments, including:
- Physical therapy
- Ultrasound therapy
- Cortisone injections
- PRP injections
- Pharmacological treatments
- And more
In the event that knee surgery does offer you the best chance to regain your quality of life, our medical staff can tell you about the innovative Stryker® Triathlon implant for total knee joint replacement. This cutting-edge prosthesis features a single radius design for enhanced mobility and less pain during recovery, and the X3 Advanced Bearing® technology, which greatly extends the life of the implant.
