Knee Care at Premier Orthopedics

That nagging pain in your knee could be the warning sign of bigger trouble ahead that can transform moves you take for granted into barriers – from chairs to stairs. The knee specialists at Premier Orthopedics offer skilled diagnosis and a wide range of advanced solutions to reduce or eliminate your pain from injury, wear or disease such as arthritis.

Our team has the advanced training and extensive experience to assess, diagnose and treat knee problems arising from injury, overuse or disease such as arthritis or bone deformities. We provide thorough evaluation of your joint, your activities and your goals to create a personalized care plan to relieve your pain and get you moving again.

We offer a range of non-surgical therapies including exercise, steroid injections and anti-inflammatory medications. Should surgery be your best option, less invasive procedures may be right for you and can often result in less pain and faster recovery than traditional approaches.

For active patients with knee pain, Premier Orthopedics offers a range of cartilage restoration treatment options, including a cartilage transplant technique called matrix-induced autologous chondrocyte implantation (MACI). MACI transplant, a two-step procedure using the patient's own cartilage, is most effective for active patients, from their teens to 50s. In addition to MACI, Premier Orthopedics offers a range of other cartilage restoration treatments. Our specialists are board-certified orthopedic physicians and surgeons who are trained and experienced in cartilage restoration procedures – and in determining which procedure is best for your unique needs.

You can rely on the knee specialists at Premier Orthopedics to help you keep up your pace whatever your age with complete knee care at our many Southwest Ohio offices.

Knee Conditions We Treat Include

Robotic-Arm Assisted Joint Replacement

Premier Orthopedics surgeons offer advanced robotic-arm assisted knee replacement procedures, using ROSA® Knee and Mako SmartRobotics™, so your surgeon can create a customized plan based on your unique anatomy for a more predictable, precise surgery.

ROSA® Knee For Knee Replacement

How It Works

Before your surgery, with ROSA® (Robotic Surgical Assistant) Knee, a series of X-rays may be used to create a 3D model of your knee anatomy. This 3D model will enable your surgeon to plan many specifics of your knee replacement prior to surgery.

During your procedure, ROSA Knee serves as your surgeon’s robotic assistant. ROSA Knee uses a camera and optical trackers attached to your leg to know exactly where your knee is in space. If your leg moves even a fraction of an inch, the robot can tell and adjusts accordingly. This helps ensure that the plan your surgeon put into place is executed as intended. Throughout your surgery, ROSA Knee provides your surgeon with data about your knee. This information, combined with your surgeon’s skill, helps your doctor know how to position your implant based on your unique anatomy.

How It Helps Patients

Getting a precise knee implant fit is important to your comfort and overall experience following knee replacement surgery. ROSA Knee uses data collected before and during surgery to inform your surgeon of many details related to your unique anatomy that may affect your implant fit. By using this data to make more informed decisions, your surgeon is able to plan for and carry out a personalized surgery based upon your individual needs.

Mako SmartRobotics™ For Knee And Hip Replacement

How It Works

Mako SmartRobotics™ combines three key components — 3D CT-based planning, AccuStop™ haptic technology, and insightful data analytics — into one platform that has shown better outcomes for patients needing total knee, total hip, and partial knee replacements.

Before surgery, your surgeon can use the Mako System to create a personalized surgical plan and identify the desired implant size, orientation, and alignment based on your unique anatomy. During surgery, the Mako System enables your surgeon to make any needed adjustments while guiding the robotic arm to execute the plan.

How It Helps Patients

Mako SmartRobotics™ helps surgeons know more and cut less. In clinical studies, Mako SmartRobotics™ for Total Knee has been associated with less pain, less need for opioid pain medication and inpatient physical therapy, reduction in length of hospital stay, improved knee flexion, and greater soft tissue protection in comparison to manual techniques. In clinical studies, Mako Total Hip resulted in more accurate placement and alignment of hip implants based on the surgical plan, less likelihood of hip dislocation, reduced blood loss, replication of the feeling of a natural hip, and preservation of healthy bone.
