Knee Surgery

Whether the cause of knee pain is arthritis, sports injury or trauma, the orthopedic surgeons at Howard County General Hospital can diagnose and treat your knee condition.

Knee Pain Seminar

Knee pain causes, anatomy, and treatment options
Daniel Tang, MD, Potomac Valley Orthopedic Associates

If pain medications, weight loss, physical therapy or other treatments don’t provide relief, surgery may be an option. Our surgeons perform knee arthroscopy, repair of torn knee cartilage and ligaments, and total knee replacement surgery, which removes and replaces diseased joint surfaces with prosthetic implants. We perform minimally-invasive surgery, which may involve less pain, a shorter recovery time and smaller incisions. Our specialists can help you determine whether surgery is right for you.
