Knee Surgery Isn’t Your Only Option
Knee pain has many causes—and innovative treatments. The knee subspecialists at Orlin & Cohen can help you find yours. While our board-certified, fellowship-trained surgeons have extensive expertise in arthroscopic, minimally invasive surgery, as well as knee replacement, we 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.
- A torn meniscus, one of the most common sources of knee pain.
- Tendonitis, an inflammation of the tendons that surround the knee.
- Sprains or strains, which are injuries to the ligaments and tendons.
- A tear of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), the major stabilizing ligament of the knee.
Treatment focuses on managing your pain and improving your ability to function. This might include RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevation) and activity modification, physical therapy, pain management or even MACI knee cartilage regeneration.
When knee surgery is necessary, Orlin & Cohen’s subspecialists are among the leaders in the field of knee surgery: From anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction and meniscus tear repairs to partial and total joint replacement.

Knee Replacement FAQs
How long does a knee replacement last?
Most modern knee replacements last 25 years or more, which can mean decades of pain-free living.
How long does a knee replacement surgery take?
Knee replacement surgery takes approximately 60 to 90 minutes.
How long does it take to recover from a knee replacement?
It takes about three months to a year to feel fully recovered from a knee replacement, but most patients see improvement in both pain and function before that time.
How bad does a knee have to be before knee replacement?
Having a knee replacement is a very personal decision and it really differs from person to person. At the end of the day, it depends on the severity of the pain and how much it is affecting the individual’s quality of life.
How long does pain last after a knee replacement?
The first two weeks after a knee replacement can be a bit painful. It is not uncommon to have pain past that point, but it should improve throughout the postoperative period.
