Receive Personalized Knee Arthritis Treatment Recommendations from Houston, TX, Orthopedic Specialists
There are many options when it comes to knee arthritis treatment, ranging from simple medications to clinical procedures such as injections and surgery. The condition can be quite painful, but it doesn’t have to interfere with day-to-day life. At Advanced Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine of Houston, Texas, we provide comprehensive arthritis treatment plans, tailoring our recommendations to each patient’s specific needs.
In most situations, we take a conservative approach to knee arthritis treatment, initially suggesting options such as:
- Anti-inflammatory medications
- Hyaluronic acid injections
- Plasma-rich platelet injections
- Knee-specific physical therapy exercises
- Radiofrequency ablation
- Temporary rest and activity modifications
- Heat- and ice-based treatments
- Weight loss, if applicable
- Knee bracing
Often, a combination of these therapies is all that’s necessary to alleviate pain and help a patient return to their daily activities. Knee bracing, for instance, led to significant improvements in pain, arthritis symptoms and ability to engage in activities for individuals who used it as a treatment for medial compartment knee arthritis, according to Efficacy of Unloader Bracing in Reducing Symptoms of Knee Osteoarthritis. As a full-service orthopedic provider in Houston, Advanced Orthopaedics offers all of these treatments and others under one roof. This enables our patients to explore a wide range of options and consult with several highly experienced specialists in one location.
Not only do we offer nonsurgical knee arthritis treatment, but surgical treatments as well. Depending on the extent of a person’s joint damage, a partial or total knee replacement may be recommended. At Advanced Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine, we use the latest surgical techniques and technologies (e.g., custom knee replacement implants) to produce the best possible surgical outcomes. Our orthopedic surgeons have helped countless patients achieve a full recovery and get back to the activities they love, often with very little downtime. On average, our patients spend just 1.16 days in the hospital after a total knee replacement and just 1.02 days after a unilateral knee replacement.
If you’d like to consult with Advanced Orthopaedics regarding your knee arthritis treatment options, contact us today to request an appointment. Our board-certified and double-board-certified physicians welcome patients from Houston, TX, and all other surrounding areas.

What Our Patients Are Saying
Each procedure done by Dr. Patel has been an improvement. Very pleased.
Dr. Patel has been a great Doctor for me. When I was referred to after discussion we decided to do injections in my back. The first two did not work so did two more in a different section of my back. These injections worked great. I’m now able to sleep at night and the numbness in my foot is almost gone. The tingling in my foot & leg is gone and I am very happy about that. I am extremely happy that Dr. Patel is my Doctor. She has been a good listener when I tell her where I hurt and talks to me about what she feels should be done. The final decision is always mine.
On Nov. 22, 2017, I had a spinal injection in my lower back and it was an instant miracle in my life! For the first time in 4 intolerable months of pain, I was finally pain free, and I am now getting a second chance to live again! I am so grateful to Dr. Patel for my new life, and to God for guiding me to her! Thank you so very much Dr. Patel – you are God’s gift to me, thank you for being so awesome at what you do.
Dr. Patel is one of the best Doctors I have ever had. She is pretty good at her job. She makes it plain and simple. She is also very thoughtful. I was very glad to have met her. In other words she is pretty good.
The surgery done by Dr. S. Patel (Actually injections) & the mild medications she has prescribed has surely made my lower back -hip-leg less painful. I have complete confidence in her medical judgement & advice. She will administer second injection in June.
Dr. Patel is a very good Pain Management Doctor. She is one of my favorite doctors.
Dr. Patel has been great at my pain relief. She doesn’t force me to take any meds I don’t want, or injections. She will give me the injection I want when I need it. Great friendly Doctor.
Thank you for the opportunity to express how pleased I am with the excellent care of Stacy A. Bacon, M.D. I have confidence in her ability to care for me as she successfully partially replaced a broken hip 10 years ago, 2007. I also want to compliment Cheryl who set up the appointment. She represents Advanced Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine very well.
It’s been over 8 years since Dr. Bacon replaced by right ankle. I still can’t thank her enough for the years of pain free walking I have done since! And I’m still going strong! I had numerous breaks in my ankle due an auto accident, repaired/set by a different doctor, after multiple surgery’s, I was still limping, in great pain every day. Then I found Dr. Bacon, now, no more pain, NONE, and no more limping after this ankle replacement. I rave about her constantly and would recommend her to anyone who has a foot or ankle issue
I had been in so much pain with my back for years. It got so bad that I knew I had to do something. I went to Dr Mohr for help. I was so afraid to have spine surgery as I had heard so many horror stories. He and his staff were very informative. I was amazed at the new technology in spinal surgery. December 8, 2016 I had rods and pins put in my back. I am so happy I did now. I am healing really fast and the pain is going away as my body heals. Thank you Dr Mohr for you expertise and sensitive nature. You were understanding about my fear and helped assure me so I could receive the help I needed. You are an excellent Doctor.
