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
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.
I have been a patient of Dr. Cubbage for several years. Each time of go there, he always presents a thorough plan of care. From ordering the most appropriate diagnostic tests to making sure you understand each step of his plan of care. He consistently instills confidence that you are the road to recovery.
Plus his assistant Karen is extremely knowledgeable and very caring!
I would highly recommend Dr. Cubbage if you are having any type of spinal issues. I have seen Dr. Cubbage several times over the last 3 years for lumbar pain and numbness in my left leg. Dr. Cubbage explained my diagnostic results in such a way that it was easy for me to understand. He patiently answered all my questions and explained my options. Fortunately, Dr. Cubbage has been able to manage my pain with conservative treatment but know surgery is inevitable. When that time comes, I would choose no other than Dr. Cubbage! And it’s a plus that he has such a kind and caring staff.
For the first time in many years and many knee operations on one leg I am without any knee pain. This is a result of a procedure performed by Dr. Patel.
I made an appointment to see Dr. Patel on the recommendation of Dr. Tanous following knee replacement and several months of continued pain. Dr. Patel explained the procedure to me and explained how we would proceed. The first procedure was to determine if I would be a good candidate for the second procedure. After the first procedure my pain was anywhere from 0 and 5. Dr. Patel explained to me at follow-up that I was not a good candidate for the second procedure due to my pain level being above the 0 to 3 level. After talking for a while I said “any relief would be better than the pain I had been having.” With this it was agreed that I would have the second procedure. It has now been 6 days since the procedure and I am without any pain.
I realize this is only a few days of not being able to sleep, with a pillow between my knee or under my leg at night. I know the pain may come back at anytime but until then it has been well worthwhile. I hope it will last 6 months, if not, I will have the procedure again after 6 months.
Thank you Drs. Patel and Tanous.
Outstanding Physicians. I’ve had two surgeries here, one on my foot with Dr. Bacon, and an extensive back surgery with Dr. Cubbage. I’m new to the area and my wife found me these surgeons. I have to say that each surgery I’ve had with these physicians have had excellent results. I was very pleased with my foot surgery and decided to see Dr. Cubbage for my back. Other surgeons I’ve seen regarding my back only gave me a 50/50 success rate. I have to say, the low back surgery with Dr. Cubbage was like a miracle. Right away, I noticed a difference and I’ve continued to improve rapidly. I’m almost eight weeks out and I haven’t felt this good in years. I’d like to thank Dr. Stacy Bacon for my foot surgery and Dr. Matthew Cubbage for my low back surgery. Without these drastic results, I’d not be walking today. Thank you all very much and I highly recommend your services. God bless you all.
Dr. David R. Mack replaced my right hip in June 2009, and my left in October 2010. I am already able to go places and do things on my own again. His excellent staff are very caring and helpful throughout the entire process, including recovery. The out-patient therapy is the best. I am walking very well now and am very pleased to have my life back. Thank you so much Dr. Mack and your great staff! Sincerely,
Dr. Bacon, I can never thank you enough for what you have done for me and for my daughter, Melia. In 2011, on the first anniversary of my surgery, my wife and I walked for two hours on Copacabana beach in Rio. I also completed a four hour nature walk over rough terrain in The Falklands and hiked to del Fin del Terre at the tip of South America. You are truly a great doctor, and I thank God every day for you and for Dr. Fogarty who recommended you for Melia’s surgery.
When I started, I couldn’t put any weight on my right leg and now I can do virtually anything. While I hope to not need future therapy, this is without a doubt the place I will return to in the future.
It has been eight weeks since my partial knee replacement and now I realized just how much I was missing. Having it done has made such a difference to my life. For a start my leg is now straight and my knees actually touch! I have started walking and even plan to ride my bike. The most thrilling part is that I am playing and dancing with my grandchildren again.
