Your joints are involved in almost everything you do. When you have knee pain, it can severely limit your ability to move. One common cause of knee pain is osteoarthritis (OA). OA is sometimes called degenerative arthritis because it is a “wearing out” condition involving the breakdown of cartilage in the joints. When cartilage wears away, the bones rub against each other, causing pain and stiffness.

 

The good news is that you may not have to live with knee pain caused by OA. UW Health is the only center in Wisconsin offering access to the innovative technology of robotic-arm-assisted total knee replacement.

 

To learn more about treatment options to help you get moving again, join UW Health joint replacement surgeon Dr. Richard Illgen for a free seminar.
