Don't let knee pain slow you down. From cartilage repair and ACL reconstruction to knee replacement or non-surgical treatment, the orthopedic surgeons at Upper Chesapeake Health in Bel Air have the experience and technology to get you moving again.
Our orthopedic specialists treat a wide range of knee injuries and conditions, recommending treatment based on your individual health needs and lifestyle.
When it comes to knee replacement, our orthopedic surgeons and our Joint Center team know one size does not fit all. At UM Upper Chesapeake we use computer-guided imagery and technology to create a surgery tailored to your unique anatomy.
The result is a new joint that fits better, is more comfortable and lasts longer than traditional knee replacements.
Mobile-Bearing Knee Replacement
In this technique, the cushion between the upper and the lower parts of the artificial joint is free to move as the joint moves. This creates better contact, rotation and absorption of the forces, resulting in less stress on the joint and improved resistance to wear.
Minimally Invasive Partial Knee Replacement
Best for patients with damage to only one side of the knee, a partial knee replacement can be done with minimally invasive surgery.
More of your natural bone and tissue structure is retained in this procedure as compared with a total knee replacement. The minimally invasive technique allows for a faster, less painful recovery.
Robotic Arm-Assisted Knee Replacement
This innovative and minimally invasive surgical technique can be used in partial knee replacement for adults living with early to mid-stage osteoarthritis. X-rays taken prior to surgery are used to develop a 3-D virtual animation that guides the surgeon during the procedure.
The technique allows for optimal positioning of the joint implant, which creates:
- A better fit
- A more natural motion following surgery
- Quicker recovery time
Ligament and Cartilage Repairs
From meniscus tears to ACL injuries, our team makes surgical repairs to these often sports-related injuries to the knee.
Arthroscopic ACL Reconstruction
This minimally invasive surgery uses ligaments from other areas of the leg and grafts them onto the knee joint, repairing torn knee ligaments.
