Knee and Hip

The knee and hip are important in every activity in our lives. These complex joints often go unnoticed until an injury occurs and suddenly stairs at work appear daunting or the thought of playing sports is impossible. Injuries may be sudden and traumatic or subtle and develop over time. The way to recovery starts with evaluation by a physician who specializes in these complex areas of the body.

Proliance Orthopedic Surgeons has physicians who focus on treatment of knee and hip injuries or issues arising from conditions such as osteoarthritis. With specialization and fellowship training, our surgeons can expertly diagnose your injury, develop a treatment plan, and work together to get you back in the game. Whether it is the soccer pitch, hockey ice, the Cascades peaks, or just a flight of stairs, we will work to get you moving pain free and enjoying life.

Common injuries of the hip and knee that we treat are meniscus tears, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears, other ligament injuries, cartilage injuries, arthritis, and bursitis. We utilize advanced surgical procedures like cartilage restoration, ligament reconstruction, and minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery to tailor the right treatment to each patient.

If you are experiencing hip or knee problems, call Proliance Orthopedic Associates at 425-656-5060 or talk with your primary care physician about a referral. We look forward to meeting you.
