Treatments & Procedures

San Ramon Regional Medical Center physicians and specialists are dedicated to providing you with a personalized treatment plan to get you back on your feet. We take great pride in making sure you receive the best orthopedic knee treatments and procedures, including some of the most advanced, minimally invasive options for knee replacement surgery. Below are common treatments for knee conditions that we may see.

Anti-inflammatories

Physicians use non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, along with strengthening programs, to treat mild to moderate pain associated with inflammation in the knee.

Corticosteroid injection

Medications such as corticosteroid injections are an important part of a treatment protocol for knee injuries. A healthcare provider will inject a dose of corticosteroid directly into the joint to decrease inflammation.

Immobilization

Sometimes the best treatment for knee injury may be immobilization. Physicians may recommend the use of a cane or walker as part of an ongoing treatment for knee injury.

Knee braces and sleeves

A brace is used to provide external stability to the knee joint and encourage healing. A specialist will recommend knee braces and sleeves to help strengthen the knee muscle while reducing pain and inflammation.

MAKOplasty® minimally invasive surgery

Physicians turn to MAKOplasty for joint repair and replacement because it is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that uses advanced robotic technology. This precise surgery for knee injuries typically results in less scarring, reduced pain and a faster recovery time.

Physical therapy

Physical therapy is an integral component of a physician’s approach to treating knee pain. A physician will recommend physical therapy after surgery or as an ongoing treatment regimen to care your knee injury.

VISIONAIRE®

A revolutionary new technology for knee replacement surgery, the VISIONAIRE Patient Matched system uses a patient’s MRI and X-rays to design and create customized surgical instruments based on unique anatomy.
