As an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in sports medicine, one of the most frequent things I have to ascertain is whether or not people need to have surgery to take care of their knee pain.
This week I tackle the topic, with some general advice on whether you should go to see a doc for you knee pain or stick with non-surgical routes. (Keeping in mind that speaking with a doctor is always a good way to go if you are in any doubt.)
Hope it helps!
