What Sets Us Apart

At NYU Langone’s Joint Preservation and Arthritis Center, specialists at the Hospital for Joint Diseases and Center for Musculoskeletal Care collaborate to provide individualized care for people with osteoarthritis of the knee. Our team includes rheumatologists, orthopaedic surgeons, and experts in physical medicine and rehabilitation.

Osteoarthritis of the knee is progressive joint damage that can lead to pain, stiffness, and loss of mobility. Our physicians approach diagnosis and treatment using tools and techniques based on the latest clinical research. The cause of osteoarthritis symptoms is not the same for every person, and arthritis experts at NYU Langone use advanced imaging tests to identify the source of knee pain, even when symptoms are mild. Based on the results, they can tailor treatment to relieve pain, improve function, and keep you active.

Treatment at NYU Langone

For people with mild osteoarthritis of the knee, our doctors recommend a combination of anti-inflammatory medications and physical therapy to reduce pain and restore mobility. If osteoarthritis is more advanced and the symptoms significantly affect your life, our physicians may recommend therapeutic injections or surgery.
