Knee pain can be downright debilitating: You may feel as if your leg is giving way, be unable to walk - especially up or down stairs - or become stiff when you've been sitting a bit. There are many causes, and potential treatments, of knee pain. The knee subspecialists at Orlin & Cohen can help you find yours.
While they're all board-certified, fellowship-trained surgeons with extensive expertise in arthroscopic, minimally invasive techniques, our sports medicine doctors only consider knee surgery if other treatment approaches have not provided pain relief. Using our in-house diagnostic testing, we first determine the cause of your knee pain, which may include:
- Osteoarthritis, which may be the result of an injury or aging,
- Bursitis or an inflammation of the coverings over knee bones or tendons,
- Tendonitis, an inflammation of the tendons themselves,
- Sprains or strains, which are injuries to the ligaments and tendons,
- A rupture or tear in the Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) or a tear in the meniscus, which cushions the knee bones.
What causes knee pain? What are your treatment options? Orlin & Cohen's Gregory Lieberman provides the answers in this video.
Treatment focuses on managing your pain and improving your ability to function. This might include RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) and activity modification, as well as physical therapy and pain management with therapeutic injections provided by Orlin & Cohen's in-house specialists.
Sometimes, knee surgery is still necessary. There have been significant advances in knee repair over the past few years in arthroscopic, minimally invasive procedures, and our doctors have been there every step of the way. From the biologic methods for Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) reconstruction and meniscus tear repairs to partial joint replacement, Orlin & Cohen's surgeons are among the leaders in the field of knee orthopedics.

Ask your doctor
- How many knee replacements/ACL reconstruction procedures have you performed?
- Do you do minimally invasive knee replacements? ACL biologic methods?
- How many of your patients resume their regular physical routine? How quickly?
